A while back I saw some rod holders that mounted on a scotty swivel mount. I thought Chad from Crozier built them but I saw his today and they werent what I was thinking of.

Any of you know someone local who makes these rod holders? The design I saw had a mount which used the single pin similar to a Brutus Pot puller, about a 8-10 inch mast and angled out about 30 degrees all built from aluminum tube.

They look similar to these but will adapt to a scotty mount


Thanks for any leads.

Sell your yacht and buy a fishing boat that has rod holders cut into the gunwales. If you are anchoring up for butts you will need your downrigger mounts for your downriggers.

I wouldn't recommend using any Scotty post mounts for Halibut, if your drag isn't set right - goodbye gear! I have broken off several Scotty mounts in the past years on Oversized Sturgeon and Halibut, - even the one with the reinforced metal pin in the base.. When someone sets the drag a weee bit too much - goodbye stuff -if your not quick..... Don't count on plastic crap to secure a $600 halibut rod and reel... Contact Nick Rudnick and get them made where they will last forever without worry...

I only drift fish for halibut, and I have rod holders flush mounted in the gunwales. These types of holders they are mostly used to set the rod in for a bit while you rest from jigging, and sometimes for weaker people to fight a fish with.

Miller Marine makes metal risers for his cutting board that fits Scotty bases. You could buy those off him and then take them to a welder to add the top rod holder part.

Koffler Boats makes one similar to that but I don’t believe they make them to fit a Scotty base.

I welded some up outta aluminum. Then once I seen how good a job Steve uglebayliner work was. I had him build me another purty set. Last I talked with him we though about now building a set outta stainless. They also work great for trolling for tunas. Makes the troll rods into little outriggers

I hear using an actual lanyard on the reel that's tied to the boat, works better than the Tanacum power cord at saving your rig from going over when the Scotty breaks!

The Crozier Craft ones have served me incredibly well for halibut and tuna troll rods. I run 4 of them and couldn’t be more impressed.
Also there so solid I’ve used em to tie the boat up with or hang fenders off of.
