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.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
