Got out this afternoon to try out the new (to me) boat. Caught some crappies and bluegills in six feet of water on a quiver jig and minnow. An old problem came up again today. Last fall my rear driver's side wheel would heat up and it smelled like burning rubber. I thought it was my emergency brake 'cause it seemed ot happen after I had used it. Replaced the brakes and thought it was taken care of. Any clues on what this might be? I have a two wheel drive Ford Ranger.

I had this type of problem on my old chevy. The problem was in the e-brake cable adn the brake tensioner(SP). When you go backwards in reverse it actually adjust your brakes on some models of vehicles. WHat you could try and to is acutually temporariy unhook the e-brake cable to that wheel, it is a cable with a little ball at the end that you can pull out of the locking mechanisim. try this and see if this helps. I had to eventually replace the whole cble.It wasn't to spendy because it was on the slave side. From your ebrake lever the line goes back directly to one tire, then in the middle a slave will hook up. Good Luck. Hope this helps you.

Thanks Paul. We got under the truck this morning and the rubber on the e-brake cabel was worn to the metal case. had to lean into it to get the cable to move. Replaced it and hopefully, problem solved. Thanks again.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.

      Keep on preaching BA.   Just got back from a resort on the river, 3 days fishing. 22 feet of water, they sad they were catching fish. Shacks obviously haven't been moved so far. Obvious tell tale signs.   2 out of 3 afternoons never marked one fish. The other was just a couple. Morning bite 8-8:07   They ran with the pedestrian anglers/corporate drinking groups  'good fishing' reports with their bucket of 1 limit of 10" saugers.   Signed, Disappointed Schnook from Chicago

      Wednesday was a gorgeous day on the lake...for January, anyway.  Starting to move around the lake until the pike move to the North end to start staging for spawn. It always makes for big pike later in the winter. Had some luck with a couple of small Northern pike but got a surprise when I landed a small Tiger Musky. The DNR stock them every other year in Phalen. They have been doing this since the 80's, so there's bound to be some big ones in there.
