View Full Version : Rod Holders

10-20-2011, 05:02 PM
Got a new boat I am rigging up for long line trolling. Anyone have any suggestions on what rod holders I should buy. I saw some that sinkum made that look pretty sharp but I don't know if he still makes them or how to get ahold of him. I have a set of Crappie killers already that I plan on using in the back of the boat but I want something different for the front.

Do yourself a huge favor and check out Cumberland Crappie Custom Rod Holder Home (http://www.cumberlandcrappie.com)
Terry builds the best on the market. His prices are the best out there as well so its a win win for the fisherman.

Just got a pair of T-250H with 4 rod holders with each by Driftmaster from Grizzlyjigs today. Going to be perfect fit on my boat bow. Make sure you take measurements around your rod boxes and trolling motor to see where the T bar is going to be so that you get the right height and length. Just a FYI.

Hi Tek is the best I have ever used,and Scott is as good as they come to deal with. I use them for spider rigging and long lining.

I have enough Hi-Tek's to put 23 rods out of my boat, I might be a little partial. Love em.

I changed my rod holders to Hi-Tek's on the back of the boat for longlining and love em. I used my T-bar I made and ordered just the holders. I will be replacing the front holders also.

I'll add my vote for Hi Tek. Over years of tournament fishing all around the country, I've used virtually every kind and I've not found anything yet that will be Hi Tek for most every application.

Cumberland Crappie are the most versatile that I've seen. No tools needed to move or adjust the direction. They are able to pull crankbaits without fear of losing a pole, as well.

I have had hitek, titelock and perottibilt and I like the hitek holders the best. I have the hiteks on the bow but I'm still using the Perotti's on the back.

Hteks are great and so is Scott. Another good 'un to look at is EZ Holder's made by Gene on the MS board. Totally different design, and has some advatages over others on the market. You can run him down by PMing him, E-Z Poleholder.

got me 16 Hi Tecs last year and I have used most every other one on the market. But the Hi Tecs are the best.

If all you are going to do is fish for crappie any of the ones mentioned would probably work depending on your preferred setup. If you are going to fish for multiple species including hard charging heavy fish then I would definitely recommend Driftmaster. They are very versatile and strong enough to handle hard charging fish without any problem. As a guide I have used them for years and have never had a problem and they continue to meet all my requirements.
