Default Need rod holders - Recommendations?

Well, I am thinking I can hold like 18-ish rods on my boat, but I cannot TROLL with more than 2, I would assume.

Here are pictures of the 2009 Triton LTS. Can anyone recommend where and what to install to allow more rods that I can either troll with or hold them for hanging over the side?

Thanks!

Russ

Pictures: The second one shows 2 holders on the back corners (pic was taken before I added the T-top)

First off.. sweet rig Not sure from the pics if you have enough gunwale access to mount a couple more flush mount rod holders.. if so, I would add a couple outward angled flush mts. forward of the existing pair.. another option would be to mount some clamp-ons to the pipework of your T-top.. Like the Taco's over my shoulder in the picture.. You can adjust the angle to what ever attitude you desire for trolling.. excuse the fishes and the tongue.. only pics I could find that showed the equipment well..


As far as "hanging them over the side" you can pick up devices called "Outrodders" .. simple T's that drop into the flush mounts, holding them.. more or less horizontal.. here's a pic of one in use..They make fancier ones that pivot to allow the rod to be pulled out vertically , but they are alot more $$.. in either case, notice the "leash" attached to it.. a must use.. or you will go thru them at an alarming pace

Thanks.. I was gonna sell the boat, but decided not to. As with all things, it is still "for sale" but only if the price is right, so daddy can get another one.. lol

I have room for 1 more flush mount on each side, in the rear quarter, right behind the gunnels. I probably do not need more than four, since I generally do not take more than 3 other folks with me.

I guess I can just pick up a couple at Academy, they should do the trick, and then find the right drill bit to make a nice even hole.

I COULD add a couple more in front of the gunnels, but I hate to cut into an area I cannot see and at least I can see the back ones.

I like the ones on the t-top!

Nice flounder!

You could add telescoping outriggers to the t-top!

or 2 more holders pointed to the sides on your t top

I like these
www.spiderkingrodholders.com

They have those single outriggers for $29.99 and they have double out riggers for $39.99. The rod holders that go under the seat also works great.
