    I`m looking for a place to purchase rod holders and also some thoughts on the best ones to buy. I do mostly bank fishing at night and I`ve been real lucky and sometimes real fast. Getting older and the poles seem to move faster than they used to.

    Yep, I have noticed those "fast poles" too!

    I 'd like to find some that are cheap enough to leave (stashed) behind at my regular spots. I carry enough as it is.
    So far I have found good stout "forks" with a rock on the pole butt tough to beat.

    Allen check out the BOC Library on Bank Rod Holders. This may give you some ideas and save you some money, If you want to purchase rod holders check out catfish connection.com. I hope this will help.:lol: :smile2:

    Thanks for the quik responses. There are some great ideas there and definately fits any budget. I learned a long time ago it doesn`t have to cost alot to do the trick.

    Ya know as a kid all i ever used was a forked stick. They work really well if the ground is moist enough to push em in. I see where people have left em still in the ground at the Missouri River. If they're there and solidly placed I'll still use em!!:big_smile:

    I decided to go with PVC. I`ll let ya know how it works. I`ve used a lot of sticks stumps ect. and I still swear the poles these days are alot faster the the ones I used a few years ago. I can still catchem but it`s getting to close for comfort!!

    scott hit the nail on the head.work any where even if the bank is rocky.just pile rocks around them till they are sturdy enough to hold.

    Here's a pic of the rod pod that I use, it's a Fox Horizon.
    It's adjustable to have the rod tips up to 80ยบ down to rod tips in the water. Plus it doesn't matter if it's soft ground or concrete, it can be set up either place without problems.

    p.s. those are 12' rods on it.
