Now that we have extremely cold weather here, people are bound to have problems with their heaters and propane tanks. In extremely cold weather, it is important to keep your tanks as full as possible. When the temperature dips, so does the pressure in your tank. When the pressure drops, the liquid won't vaporize. The only way around this is to keep your tanks full so the pressure stays up.

This may be considered an advertisement, but we will work with you to keep your tanks full. Normally we have one charge for a tank fill, but if your tank is 1/2 or 2/3 full, we will work with you on this. I'd rather see your heater work properly and you safe and warm in this cold weather.

Thanks for the great offer to fill the part full tamks and not charge a full fill to fill a 1/2 full tank.

Guys, this is a very generous offer as very few propane suppliers will do this.

Just an example of how great our Fishing Minnesota sponsors are.

The physics are a little more complex then just keeping your tanks full but the importance of this message is correct.

Harvey is certainly correct when it comes to 5 - 20 lb tanks, everywhere fills at a flat rate, this is an real offer from someone dedicated to their customer.

Another tip for those using 1 lb tanks is do not use wal-marts (Ozark Trail) 1 lb tanks in this cold weather. They have cut something else into that fuel that unnoticeable in the summer but doesnt vaporize the at the same rate in the cold. The result is your heater really starts to stink towards the end of the tank. I put those on the grill and buy elsewhere for hard water fishing.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
