Scotty Rodholder extensions.

Posted on October 28th, 2019

I don’t do a lot of trolling, but when I do I use removable Scotty rodholders that I attach to the G3 removable gunwale plates that can also be moved around anywhere along the rail. In the past I just attached the regular Scotty downrigger base and then inserted the rod holder.

This year for the first time I added a rod holder extender to elevate the rod holder and it has worked out very well making it much easier to grab the rod when a fish gets hooked. I also went to the Scotty Orka style “locking” rod holder which keeps the rod secure when trolling in rougher conditions and is ideal when using with diving devices or hooking really big fish like Chinooks that can hit and run violently.
