boat spring maintenance question?

2 posts in this topic

Guys I have a dumb mechanical question about replacing the hubs on my trailer. This year is bearing year for my trailer. WHen I did them 2 years ago each side for some dumb reason used a different size bearing therefore i am guessing 2 diferent hubs. Well this year I am going to just buy 2 new hubs since they are only about $30 each and take 5 minutes to put on. But here is my question: ARE ALL SPINDLES the same size generally? I was looking at some yesterday that said for 1 1/4 " spindle (I think) and it made me wonder. Any one know?

Paul, spindle size increases as load capacity of the trailer increases. If you have two different bearing sizes on your trailer chances are you also have two different spindle sizes. The inner race of the big bearing fits on the biggest part of the spindle. Measure the diameter of both spindles on the area that the inner race rides. If you have two different size spindles go with the bigger one, replace the smaller spindle, buy one hub and two sets of bearings and seals. fishineyes

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
