Default whats your favorite rod holder?

Looking for rod holders that will work for fishing with live bait and trolling. my boat doesn't have much room on the rails for a flush mount. I need something that can be low key, or just removable.

whats your favorite?

Thanks
Jake

Check out gemlux coastal series. Mention this forum and get a discount on them as well. Make sure to ask for Jerry if you call them.

Cisco's made in Cleveland. They are anodized aluminum and stainless. Fully adjustable and are cost effective compared to a trident. A guy on the Atlantic recently purchased a set and couldn't be happier. They can track mount or gimbal mount as I have them. If interested let me know and I can put you in contact with the owner. Below is a link to their site and a few pics of them on my Carolina. They can be anodized in a bunch of diff colors.

Definitely check out Gemlux. I just received a set of the Bluewater series yesterday. I was very happy when I opened the box. Top quality and Jerry is extremely helpful. Good luck.

Thanks guys, I'll check em out.

haha, the thing with the fiance is, when shes done playing shes done playing... lol




Anyone used RAM mounts with rod holders?

I'm digging their flush "rail/track" design that allows some serious custom set ups, plus all removable...

Yes. Depends on what you want to do. I don't like them for pulling anything that is heavy or can have something heavy hit it. Seen a Tekota take a ride to the bottom on a buddy's boat when one snapped. Presuming we are speaking of the same RAM holders.

Yeah, those are the ones. They work, but it really depends on what type of fishing you want to do. I view rod holders as an investment. I have had my Cisco's for 10+ years now. This is the 4th boat I have transferred them to. Over the years the owners have updated them with newer parts, not because I required them but because they wanted to make sure I had the latest and greatest.

Shoot me over a PM if you want. I have rigged a few dozen boats with various rod holders and can let you know some pros and cons and pretty much all of them.
