For those of you that use a pole you push into the ground for shallow water fishing, what are you using to put the pole thru to keep your boat in place?

I see some people run the pole thru a rod holder, but I do not want to scratch my boat up with the pole rubbing against the boat.

Catfishing boats are war machines and if your doing serious battle your rig should have a good amount of battle scars in my opinion. That being said, mines an 04’ so it’s not the shiniest fanciest newest boat on the lake but it was built for battle and that’s how I treat mine, like a catfishing battleship!! They make mounting plates specifically for your application or you can redneck rig one from YouTube.


There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!

on my previous boat, pontoon, I was able to use a spring clip mounted to the deck. The shape of the spring clip wouldn't let the pole rub the boat. not sure that helps in you situation or not.

Here is one I pulled off my bass boat before I sold it. It worked great but I haven’t put it on my new boat cause I been drifting and running planer boards a lot more.

Since we have the same boat, I assume you have a rail on it. If you do buy you 3 Rod holder clamps. Bolt them on the rail. Next go to Lowe’s and find you a long I bolt that will screw in the rod holder clamp and presto your done! Just make sure when loading and unloading you move them outtA the way
