Berkley rod holder extensions???

6 posts in this topic

I've got a couple Berkely rod holders mounted on the fast track system on my Lund. The problem is they aren't tall enough so I can have the rods pointed towards the water when I'm trolling cranks.

Are their extensions I can add on to these?

Thanks,

Brian

I dont think so, at least that I have seen. Go get some Scotties and get their extensions. I have 4 of them and love the extra height they give me. Cabelas is the same holder so just get theirs. They are cheaper and always have slaes on them.

Thanks Steve!

Thanks for the reply back on the spinner rig ?'s too! I'd love to get down to the big pond with you one of these days to chase some fish, but summers are impossible for me. How's the multi species angling on the pond in Sept.?

If you've got the bases installed, most rod holders are interchangeable.

My personal preference are RAMS which have a decent extension. I've fished with a lot of rod holder brands and styles and I still think RAMS are the most versatile, and easiest to pull a rod out of.

Berkley, Ram and Scotties are NOT interchangable. I know I have tried it. I wish I could have ran my scotties in all my Ram bases but that wasnt the case. I was at Marine General the other day and we tried the Berkley Rod Holders in the Scottie bases and it was a no go.

Brian E-mail me and I can give ya some advice and maybe get ya what ya need a bit cheaper than you can up by you. Stick with Scotties or Rams. The Rams are higher out of the pack but Scottie makes a nice extension thats like 12" or so. I can send picks if ya need.

I have 4 of the scottys type (cableas labeled) with extensions in my boat. They would not fit in the old Berkely "Fish on" bases, so I had to buy all new bases, extensions, and holders.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
