Angled rod holder for Big E trip

3188 Views 13 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Fishhead56
Does anyone use an angled rod holder while on an offshore head boat trip? I'm thinking of buying one for my Big E 52 hr trips. It would hold my bottom fishing Avet 30 w/ SS rod allowing me to jig with another rod while waiting on the "big hit". The angled rod holder would fit inside the boat rail rod holder to give the rod an angle pointed maybe 35 degrees. Cabela's has a "Flush mounted rod holder combo" but the rod holder is made of a hard plastic type material - I couldn't trust it to hold my expensive rigs.

I'm looking for some recommendations based on what others use.

i have only been on one big e, but someone not manning their rod could be a big problem when the bite is on. i could see someones rig getting damaged and a tangled fish. if their is not a bunch of action, then deckhands can help pick up your second and maneuver. last year's tbb, it would have been a problem, imo.
