I also have a ShoreLander trailer and I think you are far better off getting the numbers off of the present bearings and seal than trying to figure it out from their trailer manual. The company website isn't much help. I do know that I was looking for extra bearing last fall and the parts store didn't carry them but could order them for about $100 a side. A little pricey if you ask me. I have had my trailer since 2002 (new) and haven't had trouble with the wheel bearings but I pack them every fall.

Good Luck!!!!!!!

I did a set this spring on a 90's shorelander. They were 1 1/16" I think and $20 a set but I'd pull the hub with a mic in hand and measure the shaft and housing and back seal. Then I'd go buy a replacement hub because carrying around bearings isn't really going to be a quick fix. I think the hubs were $50-60 last time I was at TSC.

You can look up your trailer on Shorelanders website and it just might tell you what size they are. My trailer is a 91 and I was able to get the part numbers so I could go in to a dealer and order the parts. My guess would be that they are a 1 1/16" but pulling them off and repacking the bearings and replacing the seal is really the best way to find out what you really need.

If you know the number of lug bolts and diameter of the hub face and also the tire/wheel size there is a chart in the back of the owners manual that lists the sizes and numbers of the bearings you need. If your trailer is less than 1500# capacity it's probably got the 1&1/16" inner and outer bearings,like mine. The higher load trailers use larger sizes and stepped spindles. If there is a Mills Fleet Farm near you the Duton / Lainson brand bearings will be 9.50$ a set. If the automotive section is out of stock try the sporting goods section - you can buy the exact same bearings and cups in a Fulton brand box for 12.50$ a set. As far as a quick fix at the side of the road, don't bother with spare bearings, go with a preloaded hub.

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
