I have noticed the vast majority of everyone is placing all their rod holders off the stern. As you can see in my avatar and the attached pictures I positioned them equally spaced around the back 2/3s of the boat. I fish a tidal river and by using 6-8 oz sinkers I don't have a problem with them all being pulled together. By putting them all the way around the boat I feel I can cover more area. My question is since everyone else is fishing off the stern is there a reason not to put rod holders all the way around the boat?
