  1. I’ve had really good luck with Akebono brake pads. i bought a pair of power stop evolution rotors for my wife’s Honda Pilot. The cost of the oems from Honda were absurd. I installed them 20k miles ago. She’s the type to accelerate to a red light and drives almost all city. So far they’ve held up great and seem to stop better than the stock rotors. They are drilled and slotted. - she doesn’t notice but I feel like there’s some feedback from the rotors to the pedal during light braking because of that. If your having a shop do the work, it may be worth you time to search an f150 forum for more information.
  2. I used to cruise the beaches with a stock 4Runner with 32 psi in the tires, never had a problem. I even pulled quite a few people out. Stock tires, aired down, with 4wd and you’ll be set.
  3. I would assume there is a cooler integrated into the radiator. I had a 98 4Runner, and this was the case. Functional, but a time bomb waiting to go off if you don’t take care of your cooling system. I bought a Tacoma in 2013. It has roughly the same engine and the same transmission as the later 4th and all 5th gen 4Runners, and it came with a cooler (same time bomb). I had/have the towing package with both rigs, not sure if the cooler is part of that package or not. I don’t think the trans temp on yotas is standard obdII, so monitoring it requires some fiddling. I think the scangauge and some ultragauge units can pull this info from the ecu. Good luck.

  5. I’m in OC for the next couple of days and brought some gear. I may go to AI in the morning and was wondering if anyone else will be fishing the island. Thanks!
  6. I have no interest in keeping stripers, so I'm all for tightening the regs. The problem with this reg is the fish have fins and they can swim from ME to NC. Unless it's enforced everywhere it won't work. just my .02
  7. I've tied a few in my office (15-60lb) and the result didn't inspire enough confidence to use fishing. The last time i was in Hatteras, I stopped by Red Drum Tackle. The guys there recommended using an improved blood knot. That was late last fall and I really haven't been fishing since, but I'm going to give it a shot this spring.
  8. I tore down and rebuilt a stradic fg not that long ago. It had a super stopper iar and I accidentally got grease in it - no more anti reverse. I ended up taking pics with my phone so I knew the spring orientation when I reassembled it. I cleaned it multiple times with different soap and detergents to no avail. In the end I put all of the metal parts in a jar of camp stove fuel and that finally did the trick. Btw, while the iar I’m my reel looked different from the one in scooby’s video, the internals and mechanics appear to be the same.
  9. I used to tell people about that place, half cosmetics and half fishing, and no one would believe me - "that doesn't make any sense..". IIRC, it was a married couple, and they each did their own thing on their own side of the space. It's a shame to see another store shut down. I'll keep this in mind and make sure I spend some extra $ the next time I stop by a local B&T.
  10. Was that the place that used to be on Rt 1, half tackle shop and half cosmetics?
  11. I fished below the little dam yesterday for an hour or so. I could see fish, but didn’t get a bite. I ran into a guy when I was leaving who said he was looking for yp too. Hopefully, he had better luck than I. -e
  12. I haven’t been yp fishing in a long time. If I have time tomorrow, I might swing by the dam and see if anything is biting. -e
  13. Gents, I have some time off between the holidays and would like to get some fishing in. I missed the fall Chesapeake bite with the endless summer transitioning to cold happening so fast. I was busy with work and I feel like the upper bay temps went from 60* to less than 50* in less than a week. I missed the bite and didn't get my fix. In short, I'm wondering if I should stay local to Baltimore and try to find some warm water on the boat or drive east and mess around in the ocean. I think the local route would be more productive, but I'd like to see the ocean and am looking for some to help me rationalize a trip. Thanks!
  14. I've been away from serious fishing for about 12 years... Are the bass three miles offshore still not protected? I remember the CG and other enforcement types coming down hard on people fishing for bluefish in the EEZ and accidentally catching stripers. I'm just curious if the rules have changed or if there isn't enough enforcement out there.
  15. In the Upper Chesapeake I would say opening night bass assassins w/ 1/2-1 oz jig head and 2 oz pink and white sting silvers were my go to. After having kids and being away from serious fishing for ~10 years, those two lures still worked the last two years.
