Thanks Skip, Mr. Warren and Dale !!!! A beautiful day on the water with good friends and catchin' feeshes! I couldn't have asked for more!!!!
I was at the PSG Meeting on Monday to cheer for Mr. Warren on receiving the plaque for his great accomplishments(see other thread for today), when Skip mentioned to me about going fishing on Thursday. Now I have a dilema on my hands . Do I go to work and attend a scheduled meeting or do I go fishing and spend a day on the water???
I thought to myself what should I do??? After a few moments of debate, I started thinking...you know what???

Tolmaz--must be a reflection or something.A rod there would never catch anything. Since you asked nicely-I use Lee-only Lee clamp on rod holders.Why anyone would risk a $$$ combo to a cheap holder-I'll never understand.When I first put them on,we did use a safety rope.Never had any trouble.I set them about 10* facing up.I like to run the wire line outfits back 100-125' with 10-20 ozs on these.Fun to pull them out with a big fish.Only trick is to make certain the gimbal is seated on the pin and the reel is parallel to the water.This let's a fish take line off the reel the right way.If set 90* to the water the line will foul in the rod tip.

Thats the same place we run our wire rods from too. Must be a grady thing I had mine on the angled part of the rail and that was a huge mistake, but it was like that when I bought the boat so I left it there. There is always more lead on those rods than the others and it would slowly work loose and start to slip. Im going to move mine up on the rail this year. With the angle I still worry about the rod so I leash it with 300# mono and coastlocks.
