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.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
