Trolling rod holders

4 posts in this topic

Looking for anyone that has an 1850 Sportfish that has put rod holders for trolling. Where did you put them? Flush Mount?

Thanks

Thanks

I would flush mount either Rams or the new Cabelas Quick draw I think they are called.

I have the flush mount Rams and really like them. If your going to do BIG Lake trolling with riggers, dypsies etc. I would go with some metal tube mounts on a track system so when you trailer with a cover on you can take the holders off and the track system wont bother your travel cover.

I have 24" Bert's Custom Tackle track mounted on the gunwales near the rear seating areas on my 1800 Lund Fisherman (similar layout to yours IIRC). I can install rod holders (Cabela's on an adapter plate) or Downriggers as conditions warrent. Up front I use the same Cabela's holders but rail mounted.

Thanks looking at it again I think the flush mount is the way to go. Trolling the St Croix.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?

      Crazy birds!  Seen 2 jakes that would putt and cut like hens, a little deeper sound of course, and would talk back to me and Abi.  The Tom was absolutely quiet and disinterested.   Been along time since birds were this quiet.  Tough to make moves.  Probably just better to sit tight and wait.   Good luck.
