    A simple and cheap on is 2 1x3, wood screw's, clamp on rod holders and a c-clamp. screw the wood together into an offset T clamp the T to the dock railing and then attach rod holders. I built mine in about 10 minutes and it costed about 20 bucks with 4 rod holders. I did go back and poly mine with some polyurethane (spelling) I had out in the shop.

    If it's your dock and nobody is going to steal them. I would screw some driftmaster bases to the dock and then get some holders that are 45 degrees.

    I already had the c-clamp here at the house but I did consider buying a speed clamp. I can not take credit for the idea here a lot of the crappie guys use them and Cruisenman has one he built but his is souped up with heavy duty stuff.

    Joesf made a real nice triangle style holder out of PVC and fits right under your chair. I do believe it's in the library, if not, I know there were pics of it posted somewhere.

    Attach pvc to a cooler, milk crate, or even a 5 gallon bucket. Be sure to put enough weight in them so a fish won't pull them off the dock.
