Has anyone made your own rod holders. One's you can hang your 12' rod out over the side of the boat. Some of us poor boys can't afford 4 or so holders at a minimum of $20 bucks each.

bass and dirk, try cutting a smaller hole than the one you make for the rod end. I used a 1 inch hole saw. Then use a jig saw to cut up and make it so the tip end of the rod to fit in and is pretty tight to the sides of the plastic.
