A very popular kind of fishing rod holders available on the market are flush mounted holders which are designed to securely hold portable rods in the water. Most often used on smaller fishing boats, these holders will usually have an external pole shaped like a bucket. There are also types that come equipped with locking mechanism so that only certain areas of the rod can be gripped. This type usually mounts to the underside of the boat’s hull, which keeps it out of the way of other equipment on board. Most external rod holders will be secured by a deck mount, boom mount, or wire clamp, but internally held rod holders can also be clamped on to the boat as well.
Why do you need the Fishing Rod Holder
The two most widely used flush mount holders are those made from carbon steel and aluminum. Carbon steel fishing rod holders commonly used in larger boats are often found with an external clamp to hold either three or five rods at a time. These types of holders are commonly used by recreational fishermen or big game fishermen who go on long treks for bass, trout, or walleye fishing. The external clamps are typically made from rubber, to ensure an extremely secure hold without weighing the boat down and cause unnecessary friction. Internal flush mounted fishing rod holders, on the other hand, are commonly used by fishermen who use short, portable rods on small boats.
Another popular fishing accessory that is often seen on smaller fishing boats is the tip top reels. A tip top reel is a simple device that is designed to keep the fishing line out of the water while the fishing rod is being fished. These reels are commonly made from fiberglass, aluminum, plastic, or metal. However, most tip top reels have been designed with an internal rod rack to hold both the line and the reel together at the same time, much like the rod pockets on traditional fishing boats. Fishing enthusiasts also commonly use tip top fishing reels with an external tip cup, which allows you to place the fishing rod tip on a flat surface for a more secure hold without losing your line.
