Ratings & Reviews
new , compact design, easy to store and very easy to use
1st experience with them was on a guided walleye trolling trip on Lake Vermilion with the Spring Bay Resort guide. After using them on that trip, I decided to purchase 4 of them for my boat. Can't wait to mount on my boat and try them out for the 1st time in late May on the Whitefish Chain in Mn.
I've used Down-East rod holders for over 20 years for Salmon to perch. The version Fish-USA has is excellent for those square rails used on pontoons. Just check the clamp on occasion especially after you've made a run to another spot as the vibrations from the boat may loosen the screw clamp. The rod holder won't slip with a hit no matter how large the fish or how heavy the strike.
What a Great Product

I have a pontoon boat and have been looking for a reliable detachable rod holder. I ran across these and purchased one. After just one time using it I saw this is what I have been looking for and immediately purchased three more. These are sturdy maintaenance free and well worth the price.

This is my third one. I now run three on my boat. They are the best rod holders on the market, and made in Maine, USA!
