As most of you know, I am a frequent traveller to the bass fishing lakes of Sonora, Mexico. The lakes are about 1100 miles round trip from my house. The last thing you want problems with on a trip like this is with your trailer. My new to me Phx 921 has been going through tires on an alarming rate. I put a new set of tires on the rear axle in October, 2019 and by May, 2020, after 4000 miles, the inner most tread on these tires had worn half the tread off, down to 4/32. It was obvious that there was a problem. Having had similar problems on my previous Ranger Trail trailer, I knew I wanted to fix this once and for all. Cherokee Trailer, in Scottsdale, had been recommended by a fellow angler, so I decided to take my trailer down and have them look at it.
Its not a big shop, but they do great work at very fair prices. They soon discovered that my rear axle was bent, which was causing the problems. Mike, the owner, gave me a couple of options for the repair. I could simply replace the UFP components of the axle, which have been problematic for him or I could use Dexter axles. Dexter is the leading manufacturer of marine axles in the US. I opted for Dexter axles. In Mikes opinion, the Dexter axles, even though rated the same, 3500lbs, carry more weight easier than UFP axles, and it is easier to get components for them.
One of the other nagging problems I had with the new to me trailer was brakes. On the way to Bartlett Lake, for example, if I would happen to engage my brakes on the way down the final hill to the water, there is a good chance that they would not release. The UFP brake calipers are notorious for sticking. So I changed my disc brake hubs and calipers from UFP to Kodiak. Kodiak is also a brand where parts, like disc pads, are readily available.
The rebuild took a little longer than expected, about 28 days, due primarily to having to install two different sets of axles in order to achieve the minimum ground clearance required. Mike would not let my trailer leave his shop until it was right. In addition to changing the axles, they also do a thorough inspection of the complete brake system and running lights. The breaks were not working properly after the change, so they replaced the lines. They completely bled the new system in order to insure the brake system was operational. They also replaced a couple of lights.
I can confidently recommend Cherokee trailer for you boat trailer needs. They are not club sponsors, but if you mention that you are a member of Midweek Bass they will give you a discount. Lots of people want to sponsor Midweek, but many times you have no assurance of the quality of products or work. I would rather recommend someone who does good work at a fair price than someone who merely offers a discount as a way of generating new business. Cherokee Trailer, 480-970-1332, located at Scottsdale Road and Thomas Road.
Midweek Bass Anglers will be having a May tournament, but not a May meeting. No meeting but we still need to have all tournament registrations in by Saturday, May 9, by end of day (THE 9th IS ABSOLUTELY THE LAST DAY TO SIGN UP). We will conduct a drawing on the weekend and email boat and partner pairings by end of day on Monday, May 11th.
Obviously with the threat of the virus still among us, personal precautions need to be taken, but we leave much of that to you. Please discuss these precautions with your tournament partner, especially whether or not to use masks, so as to avoid any surprises and disagreements at the lake. I personally use a buff as a mask, as it keeps the sun off my face and keeps most people around me in a comfortable state of mind. We also ask that you try to maintain safe distance in the parking lot, as we do not wish to draw negative attention from the authorities. The bathrooms may not be open, so plan accordingly. There may also be some operational tournament changes both before and after the tournament. I will outline some of the changes below, but please read your tournament lake fact sheet when it comes.
The April tournament at Roosevelt Lake is cancelled. This infection rate in Arizona is increasing daily, and it looks to get worse before it gets better. We wish to take no chances with our members or their families.
It is too early to tell what impact the virus will have on our May events, so we will keep you informed.

3/20/2020 1:15PM Presently Roosevelt Lake is still open to tournament fishing, and at present we still plan on having a tournament on April 22, 2020. Given the daily changes and restrictions occurring, we do not want to accept any online tournament applications until Wednesday, April 8, 2020. Keep checking for more information. Gary Grimes

Life Jackets – Personal Flotation Devices
Bass boats must have at least one wearable Type I, II, III or V life jacket (PFD) that is U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) approved and of the proper size for each person on board.
Life jackets must be readily accessible, in good and serviceable condition, and sized for the intended wearer. In addition to the above requirements, bass boats must have one Type IV USCG approved throwable flotation device on board and readily accessible.
All children 12 years of age and younger must wear a USCG approved Type I, II, III life jacket (PFD) anytime while underway on any vessel. The life jacket must be worn according to the design of the manufacturer’s recommended use and must fit the child properly. All snaps must be snapped, and zippers and fasteners closed.
Each person on a personal watercraft such as a Jet Ski or Wave Runner must wear a USCG approved Type I, II, III PFD (life jacket) with all fasteners and closures secured according to the manufacturer’s design and recommended use. Further, the life jacket must be adjusted for a snug fit.
Each person being towed behind a vessel on water skis or a similar device must wear a life jacket or buoyant belt. Note, however, that buoyant belts are not approved by the USCG.
Every PFD has a manufacturer's tag that provides details about the type, use and maintenance. I got stopped at Alamo once by AZGFD and found out my PFD, which was a Type V, had to be worn at all times. All PFD's require proper fit to ensure proper buoyancy. Most PFD's do not automatically upright the head if you are unconscious. In addition, there are many hybrid PFD's that provide features that crossover. My opinion, you want a PFD that auto-inflates, as most of us can't even remember which side of the vest the pull cord is located. Many guys prefer the type V, but if your top half is heavier than your bottom half, are you sure your head won't end up under water?
