Snaggin' Rod Mounts

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any recommendations for a commercial off the shelf snaggin' rod mount that can go in a pedestal?  I have one I use for trolling whites, crappie and walleye...just been a bit shy of using it for snaggin'. I don't think it will hold up something big gets on it. I was going to make one out of lumber but I don't really want it to be real heavy.  I'm starting to get where I don't care to hold the rods when snaggin' with the boat moving.

Any ideas would be great.

Excellent. I make my own dipsy divers out of PVC, eye bolts and weights.  I'll drag them at about 4 mph.  I have rod mounts on my boat but they are the plastic kind...I've broke a few over the years. I know they aren't going to hold up snagging. I also have a driftmaster spider rig I use in the back. I'm worried it might break as well.  But I'm going to be willing to try it this season if I can't find one someone has used and recommends.

I'm starting to get cabin fever.... I'm ready for the season to start.

Thanks Seth. I'm going to probably use the pedestal and mount it in there and tie it off on the cleats on the boat. The size is what i was more interested in. It wouldn't make sense to buy something that is going to break if I get hung up on something.
