Dying To Fish

Recommended Posts

I'm currently working on my truck, small easy job, just replacing the brakes. Yeah right... Well almost everything that can go wrong has gone wrong. I had to replace a caliper or caliber (sp?) and the emergency brake cable. And my truck fell off the jacks, luckily there was minimal damage. Only problem now for the rest of the brakes is I can't find the tool to twist in the piston. The one at the store wasn't wide enough.

So needless to say I can't take my boat out. This is causing much turmoil to my mental frame. Without the boat. I can't fish. Beating the bank here is useless and I don't have a vehicle to get to the lake. Not to mention the weather has been awful.

So what have I been doing? Replaced all the leaders on my braid, re-arranged my tackle, put trailer hooks on my spinners, bought some jigs from GMAN, and have been on this website almost all day every day.

I feel like I'm losing my sanity. So my next project will be making a panic box, something I've been meaning to do.

I'm going to fill it with, some floating rapalas, small cranks, small jigs, and small grubs.

I can't be the only one who goes through this....

I've got a lot of time to fish right now while my wife is out of town for a couple months. Problem is I went out on the river catfishing the other night and sucked up some sand and clogged my water line :o So now I'm waiting for a part to blow it out and hope that the impeller didn't get burnt up so I have to take the lower unit off and replace it. I've done that 3 times now and all three times have been on the same river, you'd think I'd learn :lol:

All you need to collapse the piston on your brakes is a c- clamp. Put the old pad over the piston, and use the clamp to collapse it. Hope that helps brother.

My pistons have to be twisted in, they won't budge with a c-clamp.

Yea, that sucks man. Once you get the right tool, should be easy. I used to rent the tool from Autozone. It wasn't a perfect fit, but I put enough pressure on it to rotate the pistons.

Hopefully this weekend I'll knock it out and be able to go out Sunday.
