Ram is what I use but Scotty's are nice and there is a ton of others. Cabelas has some nice ones too. See what your needs are for your boat and go from there. RAM has tons of different options that you can get to work on any boat.

I have Tempress Fish-Ons and really like them. Have also heard good things about RAM and the cabelas models (which I think are the same as Scotty??). I haven't heard anything bad about any, other than the absolute cheapest ones you can buy.

So ..... I'd try to get to one of the stores where you can see and touch them for yourself, and decide which you like the best.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. The Rams seem to behighly favored by most anglers that I talk to.

I have a Lund too. I use Down East rod holders with the pro track (?) brackets. Works nice. The down easts are really heavy duty and and allow for very fast rod removal.

My $.02, Huey

I guess it depends on how new your Lund is. If it is brand new, check out the pro track rod holders you can get right from lund. I have a Scottys rod holder for myself, and love it for trolling. My buddy bought one of the cheaper Berkley rod holders and doesn't like it much at all. It feels really cheap and flimsy. But like some others said, go to cabelas or someplace like that and check them out for yourself to see what you think.

Will be putting rod holders on my boat for the first time this year. I am interested in which type I should get tube or holder system? Also I have a fiberglass boat so what kind of mount shoukd I get and should it be reinforced in any way?

Thanks

I don't have much experience with tube style holders so I can't say much about them. They don't seem very common for inland waters though.

I have a glass boat and put rails on it, and used rail mounts for my rod holders. That's probably the best way to go with glass boats unless you don't want the rails.

The Cabela's rod holders are Scotty's. They have a really nice flush mount system that if it works with your boat would do the trick.

I got some for father's day last year and I really like them.

I have these also and the flush mount system is awsome.

I don't think they are considered "Tube Style" though.

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
