Fishing Rod Holder

Greetings!
I've been lurking for a while and figured I'd give back on my first post. A few weeks ago as the weather started to break, I wanted to take my new truck fishing and needed a rod holder. After some thought and visits to a few local stores I came up with this. Hope you guys and girls enjoy it. I must say, I got lucky in the paint color match.

This simple rodholder from Walmart was $14. I selected it because of the 2 screw holes. I wanted this thing to hold on tight. I went to Ace hardware and got 2 stainless steel bolts that had a large head to fit in the rail when tilted but would hold when screwed in. Same place had the cool looking black knobs. They fit perfectly! While at it, I wanted something to support the bottom 2 holes. Same place had screw-on rubber chair leg feet stopper things or whatever you call them.

Screwed the rubber feet in for bottom support in the bottom 2 holes. Came with stainless steel screws to boot. I tightned the top 2 knobs and away I went. Super tight fit, looked good and held 3 rods. Its removable and can fit behind my seat if I needed to take it off in 3 seconds. Fits anywhere along the rail.

Oh, best part! Walmart carries this paint.

It is made for plastic. It comes in a metallic grey. SAME AS MY 2011 TACOMA ! I really got lucky with that part. But if you look around you can find any color to match your truck.

TIPS so you dont LEARN THE HARD WAY.......
~Let paint dry for A WHILE. Once its dry, it wont come off of the plastic.
~Stainless Steel parts are a must.
~Clean rodholder before painting
~LET PAINT DRY ! Dont rush to mount it......Trust me !

Total cost, just over over $25.

Hope you enjoy'd my first post....

I had pretty much the same Idea but made mine out of pvc pipe and mounted it the same way. I would really like to use the rod holder you found at Walmart but can't find it. is there a part number or name to help me find it. Thanks, hope you see this soon.

Nice! I just made these the other night for when I am back down in the OBX so I do not need to break rods down all the time.

That's what he said in the OP

Great work on the 3-rod holder! I just got a couple of those expandable hard cases from Bass Pro Shops so that I can throw them into the bed and not worry about rod breakage. Plus, I can stack gear on them or keep them extended and just lean them up against the tailgate for my 7'+ rods.

But the person I quoted had trouble finding it on Walmart's site. Merely helping a brotha out

EDIT: Oops. Now that I look back, I think he was referring to the actual holder/bracket. My fault!

Now available in black

I found an identical looking rack at the local West Marine last fall. The best part was it was already black. No painting required!

I couldn't find the cool knobs and feet the OP used, so mine is not as slick. However a couple bolts, washers, and wing nuts work pretty well on mine. The rig holds my surf rod well.

I'll have to do this. Especially since the J hook idea doesn't work so well with a short bed... -_-
