Most anglers usually haul loads of gear on their way to tournaments or their favorite fishing spots, often towing a heavy boat.
It is important that the tow vehicle’s brakes be checked regularly. How long your brakes hold up depends on your driving habits and the loads you haul. A driver may burn out their brakes in just 50,000 miles, maybe sooner depending upon driving habits.
Check your brakes by removing each tire and visually inspecting the brake pads and rotors. If the rotors are worn down, it would be a good idea to replace them and the brake pads at the same time to ensure longer life and better safety. Preventative measures with your tow vehicle ensures that you get to your fishing destinations and back without incident.
The Teen Sportfishing Association’s season is coming up quick and the local Osceola club is in need of volunteers to help head up Osceola TSA. Duties would include meetings two times a month, every other Tuesday, setting up tournament dates, running tournaments, pairing teens for tournaments and helping to find boat captains for tournament days. They also will assist with lining up guest speakers from the fishing industry and other fun and rewarding tasks! If interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
