    Everyone is always looking for good rod holder ideas so here is a spot we can share our pics of them. Also share your method of using them.

    If ya aint got a pick then get one and come back...dont need no descriptions here, only pics.

    Here is what mcdo2137 and I have bent and welded up for ourselves. They have a two pronged bottom with a foot bar, these holders wont move...period. Obviously these wont work in solid rock.

    I tight line, clicker on ,and the drag is set between 3 and 4#. The angle of the rod depends on the wind speed. The higher the wind speed is, the lower I set the rod tips.

    Here is a pic from last week of a 24# Striper screaming the drag. These holders have brought in around 400 cats so far this year.

    These are the bigger ones( 1/2 inch ) I own but I also have smaller ( 1/4 inch )gauge ones that are shorter. I like these because of the height...I can grab them fast !!!!!

    If ya got em...show em off right here !!!!!

    tight lines
    -Jim-

    Here's some that i threw together at the body shop .They are just 1 1/2 inch black pipe,in 5 inch sections,welded to 2 foot length 3/8 rebar.I notched the bottom of the tube,for the trigger on my casting rods(they never want to sit upright)They are untested,but should work just fine

    PVC pipe on a metal rod works great.

    Great thread Jim! Lots of good ones.
    Here is what I use for my bank fishin.
    The first ones are what I use when I am fishing a dirt bank. They hold solid and are easy to get into the ground. They are made from some type of spring from a tractor.
    The second ones are just extras. One is made from Pvc and a steel rod, the other from angle iron and aluminum pipe.
    All work great for where I fish.
    The third ones I use for fishin on sandbars. Made from some angle iron and pvc, they cup the sand and dont pull out like rebar. They work great for this.

    Q/...The first ones are what I use when I am fishing a dirt bank. They hold solid and are easy to get into the ground. They are made from some type of spring from a tractor .../Q

    Those are rake teeth.
    Used on hay rakes, combines etc.
    Great idea.
    You guys can buy them at your local farm store. Price around $2.00
    Got a few laying around.
    Now I know what to do with them.
    Thanks a bunch.
    Have a good 1
    just
