    Hey guys I built my rod holders a little over a year ago and I want to see what you have come up with. My holders are just Bass Pro ring and hook rod holders, jammed into a milled out set of Thule truck racks. I can fit 8 rods up there, but they are not strong enough to hold a 50 or 80lb class tuna outfit. I like this set up because I can still put a bunch of crap in the bed like a cooler and my canal bike. Let’s see what you got!

    I like it. Been trying to find something for my gear as well. Most of my stuff is offshore gear as well. When I bring my lobster gear it would be helpful as well. Thanks for the ideas. We are still fishing Tuna and yellows right now.

    I was tempted to post a picture of my hand. But those are pretty cool. I like those Thule track racks, but they are pretty pricey.

    Those Stellas and Van Staal make me very jealous. Great setups and Thule Racks are the only way to go IMO.

    Canal fishing, now we are talking.

    That St Croix with the VS looks a little light for the canal though, the small Stella too. :D

    If I get a chance I will take some pictures of my rod racks and post them.

    Are you on SOL?

    Must be a depth perception thing, that 10k looks like a 5k in the picture.

    I go by the screen name DAQ on SOL.
