WHY DO I NEED A ROD HOLDER?
Rod holders are an integral part of a fishing boats setup, and for very good reason. The most obvious use is for trolling. A rod holder can be a godsend during long days on the water, and also during nasty and extreme weather.
Utilizing a rod holder will allow you to be more attentive to electronics and the operation of the boat, without the fuss of physically holding the rod, essentially limiting the use of one of the extremities.
Not only that, but the device will help in keeping you alert and fatigue-free - a common ailment for those unlucky enough to troll with a rod in their palm for hours upon hours.
