Bass Pro Shops® Side or Flush Rod Holder Mounts
very good purchase
I recently purchased flush mount rod holder mounts for my Tracker boat. I installed 4 to give me the most versatility. I have used them to troll for stripers and walleyes the last two weekends. They held the Bass Pro Shops rod holders very nicely and did not present a tripping hazard. They were not hard to install but I did upgrade the hardware to 1/4-20 bolts. ( which also stiffened the gunwale). Money well spent.

I have used this type of rod holder mounts before on different boats an they work well. The rod holders that I have are made by Roberts. With this mount the locking nub is a little longer than the Roberts brand. As a result the mount will not allow the rod holder to turn. I used a Dremel tool with a grinding wheel and cut off some of the length of the nub and it works fine.Not really a big deal.

Zip ties saved the day
I purchased the side mounts for use on 1 1/4 square railing around a pontoon boat. The spacing between the screws on the mounts do not work for 1 1/4 square u bolts. So I drilled out the holes on the mounts and used some stout zip ties. I only use them for crappie trolling or night fishing and they are working great so far. Just have extra zip ties.
