    So i do ALOT of fishing and i am tired of my pole sliding in the back so i am going to attach black fishing pole holders to the bed rails like this.[​IMG]
    i am going to place them at an angle to the back of the truck.
    What do you guys think?

    i have the holders on order now from cabelas. I will first attach them to plexi glass and then the rail for a nice firm look. I am going to keep track of how much they cost to make and see what the response from TW is and i might sell them.

    Think if I were to orient those so that they held the poles vertical like a trolling configuration, that I could attach a peanut to the ends of the strings and go trolling for squirrels?

    See, Carl Spackler from Caddy Shack is one of my alter egos and ground squirrels really drive me nuts.

    What is the optimum speed for squirrel trolling? Is it easier to use peanuts or do you need to go high tech for bait and use roasted pecans or almonds?

    What an AWESOME idea! This reminds me of a pole holder set-up my dad had in the back of his Chevy growing up. His was used for holding the poles during transport though.. He used PVC piping parallel to the bed to make holders on the inside of the racks with a small bungee cord to keep them held in. Worked great with 6 kids and a million poles.

    I will have to look into this mod! Just back the Taco up the the lake and get fish'n!

    Great Idea, really. I was dumb enough to buy a rod holder to into my hitch. That's way cooler

    Great Idea, but for me , it would not work. Some places that I go to have low hanging branches that may snag the poles in that configuration.
    I am going to make my own (with PVC painted black) and mount them horizontally, inside the bed, near the bed floor , so that the partially go under my tool box.

    Yea i know what you mean thats is why i an puting mine on an agle for more clearance. After i make them a find out the cost is to even see if this is something you guys would want. I could very easly take specal request to mount them vertical. One other note they are going to fit under a tonneau cover because i am going to get on.

    PS: does anyone know where i can get ss blocks for the rail system? I can make them but it might be cheeper just to buy?

    That's more the idea I am leaning toward. I am debating whether to have an end cap to slide the rods in and out of or making more of a box that would have a hinged lid and then the rods would stack in there along with some other small gear, vests small lure boxes, etc... Not sure which will tangle easier. I am thinking more for storage of the rods for traveling, not between fishing locations. For that I am thinking up a way to bungee some rod holders to my undercover.

    i like the actual pole holders
    Dont like the idea of Plexiglass, very easy to break
    lots of people in NC have made a varity of pole holes for fishing on the beach
    wood would probably be a better mounting surface with plastic holders
    may-be consider using a hitch basket for mounting, room for coolers and can remove assembly when not needed.
