How many trailers did you see broken down?

How many trailers did you see broken down this long weekend?

I saw one at Buffalo and 61 in White Beat that had at least 1500 lbs of granite boulders in a trailer that must have cost $1.235 33 years ago. Axel tube snapped and tire MIA.

This afternoon it was a boat and trailer on 694 south of 36 with the left tire MIA and it looked like the wheel studs were also gone.

Will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?

Only saw one incident, it was at the landing. Guy was backing his boat down the ramp and the boat rolled off the trailer before it was in the water smirk It was a smaller boat so with help from a few other anglers he was able to get it into the water.

As for trailers breaking down, it does happen. I have burned up a bearing or two and have blown trailer tires, if you pull a boat enough it's bound to happen, no matter how well maintained the trailer is.

I saw 3 on 35W between North Branch and Cloquet on Friday morning. Just glad it wasn't me. I've had tires blow, spindles and leaf springs break, yada yada...

I changed bearings on one side in the morning before we left; honestly didn't take the time to do it earlier this year and this was the first trip of the year. Fortunately I keep a set in stock along with seals and didn't have to change the races so it only took about 20 minutes.

Time well spent.

Didn't see 1 broke down from home to the Candad border and back.

Last week on Wednesday before I left I was checking the air pressure on my trailer tires and noticed one tire had a ply seperation. Checking the other, same issue so I got 2 new ones before I left.

I had checked these tires before the opener when I repacked the bearings and the tires looked fine. Since the opener, I probably put on 1000 miles so they can go fast.

They were 6 years old with close to 20,000 miles on them so it was ok they seperated.

From my home to the cabin near Danbury didn't see any on the way or back.

A few years ago my brother had an axle break on his speed boat trailer, $750 ordeal. Up in Canada a friend of mine got to see something very few will ever see. Another guy in his group had his boat pass him on the old logging roads in Canada. A friend of mine also saw something very few will ever see, a boat on the water with the trailer still strapped to it!

To be honest almost brought the bass boat instead of the aluminum boat to the cabin this past weekend as the realization was made prior to leaving the axles hadn't been services in about 10 years...

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
