    Well first I will have to give thanks to black water because I had this idea but with his post I was really able to make it come together. They are no water tested yet but they are my weight tested and so far so good. I will try to add pictures.

    I forgot to mention that these attach to the seat rods and are no holes in the boat.:smile2:

    Thanks everyone I think I am going to go out tonight or tomorrow and try them. I also need some of that flat black plastic paint so they at least some what match the boat.

    they look real good but dont they limit you to fishing out one side of the boat ? you might want an extension running across and down the other side or across the back .

    I was thinking about the other side today when I was building them. It is going to be more of a challenge because the consol is in the way. Plus right now I only have three rods. When I bank fished you can only use two so I will have to get more for christmas. Also I have already been thinking of lighting ideas with pvc. That stuff is great.
    Thanks everyone

    Took them out on the lake yeaterday and they did pretty good except the glue came undone on one of the joints which is my fault I was using really old glue. I didnt catch any fish but I did catch some trees and they held pretty well.

    I didn't think to mention it before, Stephen, but if you wanted a little lower angle, you might try rolling the vertical section out a little. 45 degrees is fine for anchoring, but when I'm drifting, I really like an angle of about 25-30 degrees. Just a thought; might not be anything that you need.
    Do you usually anchor, or do you do much drifting at all?
    Glad you like the rod holders.:smile2:

    most of the time I have been anchoring up here I am catching ay to many trees. I did drift the other day but it was a disaster even keeping the bait five feet off the floor if I was still in the santee I would probably drift more. but now that you said that about the angle I might change it because they could be used for vrappie fishing this summer as well. Thanks again. I havent had much chance to tinker with it even with this 70 degree weather.

    I sure hate to just post anything to reach the '10 posts' level to see pics.

    I need holders for my pontoon, can't wait till the time I can look at pics.

    Does anyone have a solution to meeting the "10 post" rule before downloading pictures?
    I don't feel like I should just post to up the count without contributing a post that might be helpful.

    Thanks......
