I am just setting up my boat for musky trolling. I'm installing a Traxstech track system and need rod holders. What are your suggestions?
Musky Trolling Rod Holders
I love my cisco’s. Expensive. But worth it in my mind. I ended up getting the tube rod holders because I like keeping the cockpit area of the boat free of rod butts. They’re easily removed and all aluminum with Lifetime warranty. I think they will work with the track system you mentioned. Worth checking out anyway.
Scotty power lock rod holders are really the way to go in my opinion.
We have bought cheaper/lesser brand rod holders over the years and after a month or two of getting blasted by big Pike/Muskie they wear out and before you know it you are getting slapped in the face by an eight foot rod swinging to the rear of the boat as your lure gets whacked by a big fish because the teeth in the holder base have worn out.
Nothing like I describe in the above paragraph has every happened to us with a Scotty power lock. They just work, simple as that.
Folbe or Down East are both excellent. RAM are good too. I've never used Attwood. Whatever you use, make sure they can stand the impact of a rip at 3-3.5 mph. I had some lesser brands over the years fail to the point of breaking on impact.
Attwood, Folbe and Down east.
