Sept 11 and 12, 2005

Yesterday was a typical day for this season. When I arrived at my processor with my totes of fish, the right trailer wheel was off, hanging on by a thread. The outer bearing was pushed to the end of the axle, and the inner bearing was just plain gone. Took the bearing and race to the auto parts store, and received replacement parts. Unfortunately, when I returned to the trailer the parts didn’t fit, so back to the store. By the time I got the right parts I had to leave right away to sell fish at the dock. When I returned, however, my processor – a mechanical wizard – had already changed out the bearings and I was ready to go. Back out fishing today to try to scratch a couple near town with my remaining ice.
