Urgent - Big Buddy Heater Caution

Recommended Posts

WKSparrow

Just got off the phone with the Mr. Heater company... the new (just released this fall) BIG Buddy heater has been pulled from the store shelves b/c of a potential safety issue... and those who already own them should stop using immediately...

THIS DOES NOT CONCERN THE "LITTLE" BUDDY HEATER - those are fine!!!

Thought I should post this since it's gonna be so cold this weekend.

WK is right, I talked with a rep from Mr. Heater as well and she let me know that they have filed with the Consumer Product Safety Com. about this and were hoping to hear back around Feb. 1 but for the time being you should stop using this unit. Something to do with a valve made in China.

The number on their website is incorrect and the new one is 216-916-3000 so if you own a unit I would suggest calling them to get a on distribution list so they can notify you of the outcome and what you can do to get it fixed/replaced.

I just read this today and called up to my Dad who was at this time (4:20ish pm) and he was backing up to his fish shack on URL to let him know not to use it if he had it. Whew!!!

Good Luck fishing to all and stay warm without the Big Buddy for the time being.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
