E-Z Out-Rodder Rod Holders
|E-Z Out-Rodder Rod Holders|
The E-Z Out-Rodder has been tested by professional guides used since 2004 with wire line for Striped Bass and Bluefish, as well as for Tuna and White Marlin in the canyons. The E-Z Out-Rodder has also been extremely successful in Canada for Salmon and huge Lake Trout, and in Florida for Wahoo and Sailfish.
- Insert into any flush mount rod holder.
- Positions rod out and away from boat.
- Rod holder is hinged to adjust rod position from horizontal to vertical in seconds.
- Cover more water, avoid tangles, create a wider spread for drift or trolled baits.
- Safer than ordinary rod holders - no more leaning over gunwale to remove rod.
- Package contains two E-Z Out-Rodder rod holders.
Unlike the standard Out Rod holder which is fixed in a horizontal position, the E-Z Out-Rodder is hinged so that it can be easily lifted upright into a vertical position. You donít have to struggle anymore when removing your rod from the E-Z Out-Rodder, as you would with a standard rod holder. When a fish is hooked, simply pull out the safety pin and bring the rod holder to an uprigt position. Lift the rod out of the holder and reel in the fish.
How to use the E-Z Out-Rodder
Place the E-Z Outrodder in the gunwhale mount rodholder.
Place fishing rod in the E-Z Outrodder and lock in gimble. (You should always use a safety line at least 6 feet in length from your reel to your cleat.)
When a fish is hooked, grab your rod and pull gently toward you and release the pin.
Lift the rod and E-Z Outrodder to a vertical position.
Lift the rod out of the E-Z Outrodder with a slight pull towards you and reel in the fish.
Only had them out once so far but wanted to share a couple of things that you need to know / do before you head out with these.
First - get rid of the mono safety lines for the pins which maintain the holders in the deployed or up and down positions and replace them with nylon covered wire leader cable.
Second - Lubricate the pins mentioned above. They are a tight fit and any corrosion at all and they don't want to come out of hole. After one use in saltwater, rinsed with fresh water at end of day, enough salt or aluminum corrosion build up caused pins to be stuck in place. When they finally worked loose the safety line popped. (see first suggestion)
Third - It is not obvious at first but the outrodders are side specific. If you look carefully, one is marked with an S for starboard and the other is marked with a P for port. They work much better on the correct side.
Fourth - You definitely will need rod leashes to feel comfortable fishing these. I just used some parachute cord with one end noosed over reel base and a loop over the outrodder.
