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 not seen anybody using angle holders. The main thing is when tuna fishing you may have to take a trip up and down the side of the boat and somebody's second rod will be in the way. They ask that you only fish 1 rod at a time. While they bottom fish. you might be able to fish a drift line if you are on the back of the boat.
