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.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?

    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
