Fishing rod holders are quite important. Apart from allowing you to keep your hands free to do something else while on the boat, fishing rod holders for boats also help keep fishing rods from becoming tangled on deck. This, in turn, allows you to spend more time catching fish and not worrying about having to manage your fishing accessories.
But not all trolling rod holders are made equal. Some are better than others. If you are planning to buy a fishing pole holder, you need to pick the one that matches your needs. How can you ensure you identify the best fishing rod rack on the market? Here is a guide that can help you.
Saltwater or Freshwater Fishing Rod Rack
If you are fishing in saltwater, go for a fishing rod storage made of stainless steel or chrome-plated brass. They are tough and won’t be affected by corrosive elements in salty waters. Yes, you could also use a fishing pole holder made of nylon or fiberglass on salty water because they won’t rust. But they are not as sturdy and reliable as their metal counterparts. Nylon and fiberglass fishing pole holders perform well in freshwater.
Different Mounting Options
There are two types of fishing holders: fixed and removable fishing holders. Removable fishing holders are easy to install and remove. They are a great option if you intend to rent the boat you are using. However, removable fishing holders are prone to slipping because they are not fitted on the ship permanently, and you have to regularly check them to ensure they are tight and well- installed.
If you have your boat, investing in a fixed fishing holder. A fixed fishing holder will be permanently attached to the boat so you can be assured they won’t slip or become loose. The tips we have highlighted are useful and will help you make the right decision when buying trolling rod holders.
