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.

My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
