Rod holders

I've seen some on here mounted on a track on gunnels that are adjustable. Looking for something to use for halibut fishing.

Cisco & Traxstech make some of the best track systems available.

I also have the full Traxstech system, if you do get Traxstech insure you buy some really good grease to apply to the thumb bolts or they will corrode and become stuck. I will get the name of the stuff I'm now using and add it to this post later tonight. Traxstech is great, only had a few problems. One being the gimble inside the tube can become loose and let the rod swing freely, not good when trolling. I have used these for 40lb striper, 8' sharks and high speed Wahoo fishing. The ones with the pull and turn lock teeth are the ones I have.

Same here. Lanacote is my go to when drilling holes in aluminum and using SS fasteners. Awesome stuff!

Slack 57 - Your Traxtech layout looks amazing. I price some of the piece you have and see that it's a significant investment. It's first rate stuff and I love the flexibility. How do you like the Traxtech downrigger. I didn't know they made them.

Its like Star Wars. soft stop going up or down, jig function you can program it to change depth with set time. So you see thermocline say 40' deep set your rigger to jig from 35 to 40 say every 3 minutes or what ever time and depth range you want. Add your Fish Hawk down temp speed depth probe showing temp change and undercurrents changing lure speed, depth reading lets you know blowback.Pretty neat,add your autopilot doing pattern turns or zig zags at set time and degree it feels like were cheating when they fish are hitting. When fish aren't biting keeps you on your toes because something always moving. I'll see rod tip bob or hear downrigger turning gives you little shot of excitement. Beats the heck out of the 70's counting your cranks and somebody asks you something and lose your count. I like them.
