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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
