View Full Version : Rod Holder for Spider Rigging

01-13-2015, 09:40 PM
I want to set my boat up and do it right but I looked at the cost of one Spider Rigging Rod Holder at Cabela's and its $140.

What would you recommend, was wondering if you can get by with one in the front and one in the back, and have bases on each side so you could fish alternate sides ?

Or would you recommend two stands for the front and two for the back? 18 Ft aluminum Boat. Just have a hard time justifying
4x $140.00

Hope this makes sense as to my thinking, Bob.

Check out Cumberland Crappie. They are also in KY, maybe you could save on shipping cost. Great products and prices.

Can't go wrong with Hi-Tek rod holders in my book. I have 6 pairs of bases from front to back of my 1860 aluminum boat so I can cover any style of fishing from spider rigging, longlining, pushing and pulling cranks, etc. I just move my rod holders to whatever the fish want.

I started off with one T bar with 3 rod holders on just the left front side. Now have added the double seat set up and another holder on the right side for my son to fish up front with me. I have also added extra bases in the rear. Sure is a lot of fun when you get in bunch of fish, but frustrating when everything get hung up. Good Luck.

Another vote for the guys at Cumberland Crappie. Not sure what part of the state your in but we drove 2 hours down with our boat to make sure the seat mounts fit the first time and even saved a little bit by driving down. They are some awesome people to deal with. Check out their website

I prefer Spyder Lok rod holders. Very quality units.

Another vote for the Hi-Tek's that I use every time I go. 9 bases are placed through the boat and enough holders to have up to 19 rods out at once if I wanted. The Extreme series are high sided and even big catfish can't muscle a rod out of place. Very satisfied, Member sponsor, a cottage business with the owner and his Dad, and just an overall good guy.

X2 on the HI-TECs I think a 4 rod setup is under a 100.

Hi-teks for me. Developed by fisherman for the fisherman Scott has one of the best holders I have used

I love my SpyderLoks, have the ability to run 16 poles off my boat (but rarely do)
Hi-teks are very good as well, the only difference is the ease of adjust-ability with or without tools.
Have fished with both and they both catch fish! you will be happy with either rig, would start with two up front. I have tried to save money and buy cheaper rigs, and ended up shelling out more cash for a quality rig a year later (both are great quality). You can look in the member sponsor area here and see pics and contact the folks who designed and sell these rigs. Good luck on your choice and good fishing!

Another vote for the Hi Tek holders. You can go to www.grizzlyjig.com (http://www.grizzlyjig.com), and they have several different brands that you can look at to see what you like.

I have a set of Hi-techs, they as good as people say they are and Scott is a good guy to deal with, I also have a Hi- tech depth finder mount on the front of my boat that I like. I am planning on buying some Spider- Locks this year. and EZ is as good of a guy that you will ever meet.

Do any of you guys use the hi-teks for long lining? If so how do they work for you?

01-15-2015, 05:33 PM
I use Driftmasters and do it all from spider rigging to long lining, to cranking, to planer boards to pushing and pulling with deep diving rigs and never lost a rod. I've been in some of the awfulest tangled up messes that you have ever seen in your life and never broke a rod, or lost, or damaged any equipment. I've run them since 2009 and never changed because there never has been a reason to change. Yes, some of the newer rigs look fancier, but Driftmaster has been around about longer than any of them and they still do a great job.

Hi-teks will do all including spider rigging long lining pulling cranks
