    I've been using some tripod holders from Cabela's this year and found them to be good value on the river for bank fishing. They are under $20 and you can set them up on rocks, mud and just about any angle you want. The rods come out easy and they fold down small when you're done. One of them is visable in my avitar.

    Are those tripod rod holders pretty stable ?

    How do they react when a fish takes your bait and you don't get to the rod real quick ? I'm refering to a hook up one the rod that is on the tripod when you are already fighting another fish on a second rod.

    Them tripod holders work great with larger fish with just a little modifications I think,Like a Log chain rapped around your reel and attached to your Truck bumper.LOL.

    I use ABU baitcasters with the free wheeling clickers, so they never get a chance to pull the holders very hard. That being said, you can tilt the rod holder up at a pretty good angle and position the adjustable legs for even more leverage. Now one of them big boys might cause a problem if you have your drag set and no bait clicker , but that'll happen with any kind of holder on a river bank, I suppose.

    get about 3 feet of small rope and tie it to one of those spiral dog stakes and then tie it to somewhere on the rod holder to where it wont slipoff and you should be good. i do that to my poles when im fishing on rock or somewhere i cant put a rod holder in the ground except i tie the rope to a rock or a tree not the stake.

    JD if we plan on catching some of these big cats that our BOC brothers are catching we might need a bigger truck to tie that chain to. Can you drive a Peterbilt to where you fish?:tounge_out:
