Re: In boat rod holders/storage?

Has anybody mounted the rod rod holders flat to the bench seats?

Here's a few ideas.
No drilling into the boat or cooler.

1. Cut PVC board to desired length
2. Drill rod holder into PVC board
3. Lexel the back of the PVC board and adhere where you want the rod holder

How has the Lexel held up over time?

I agree with you there, velcro would be the way to go. Do you happen to have a pic of your holders in your boat, Ldubs?

Hopefully you can see them in this pic.

Yep, sure can. Thank you. You have a great spot to store the rods and also a very nice fishing boat!

Re: In boat rod holders/storage?

I've used the Moeller holders for decades. They used to be very common, but I had to look hard to find any for my current boat. One thing I like about them is they give you 2 options. You can push the holders apart and put the rod into the inner hole and it will not move when trailering. Then push ...

Re: In boat rod holders/storage?

I have some from Moeller like the pic below, except mine has three holders. I added a bungee to make sure the rods say in. Screen Shot 2019-10-01 at 4.46.47 PM.png I like this style from Attwood because it has the velcro strap to hold the rods in. Screen Shot 2019-10-01 at 4.48.56 PM.png I agree wi...

Re: In boat rod holders/storage?

Bought some 6 place rod holders and cut them in half. River and zip tie to the seat braces. Been good for 3 years so far. httpss://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191001/7a045dfa0bdf13ac4b901c4c23708a2b.jpg Sent from my CLT-L04 using Tapatalk Looks good. I wish I had that much free board to mount a set.

In boat rod holders/storage?

What have you all done for in boat rod storage/holders? I have a mostly open shallow semi v aluminum 12 ft and have a few ideas but would really like to see the ingenuity of what members here have come up with.

Re: 12ft Sunray shallow v

Have you considered using underneath the two sides of the deck for storage? Looks like a good place to put extra gear or cargo netting or something. The front of the deck looks like it makes getting in a and out of the boat at shore very easy. Nice job.

Re: Fish Whacker picture request

Well I ended up building myself a fish club. I got two hiking poles for free at a garage sale, took the better of the two and cut it down to about 15". Then I ground down a bolt I had that had stripped threads so it just fit inside the tubing of the hiking stick. I painted the ground down bolt so it...

I like to have a larger quality multitool, a full size folder (Buck 110) and also a smaller pocket knife.

Different tools for different needs.
Do you carry all three all the time?

I think multi-tool knives like the Swiss Army ones have uses around the boat beyond fish cleaning.
I found this out the other day when I had engine difficulties and used the pliers and screw driver bit on my leatherman before I left the lake.

Regarding actual trolling bags, I'm wondering if when you put the boat in neutral or shut the motor off to fight a fish or something if the trolling bags stay open while you are sitting still in the water.
Yes, they pretty much do.
Good to know.
