    While on the James last Saturday, I noticed alot of boats with a bar running across the boat in the back with rod holders mounted on the bar. It seems that one would be easy to make but I don't have the time. Was wondering where I could purchase one.

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Hey Pete,

    Most of the guys with the rod holders like that make there own. Its pretty easy if you buy the holders and bolt them on to the tubing. I dont have a real good pic of mine but you can see it in the picture below. I used inch and a halk aluminum and got the rounded bases for the rod holders and mounted them on the top. Its very strong and works great for catfishing. I have not found anywhere to purchase them custom fit for a specific boat.
