Cat Tip of the Day: Bucket Rod Holder

4 posts in this topic

Here is another old Cat tip of the Day that was originally posted back in 2006. I was shore fishing at the warm water outlet to the Allen S. King Excel Energy Plant in Bayport on the St Croix a few weeks ago and was using my old bucket rod holder and it reminded me that this would be a good time to repost this tip again for those that haven’t seen it before. There are a lot of good catmen that primarily fish from the shore but struggle placing rod holders on shorelines that are rocky, rip rapped or the ground is just too hard for standard in-ground rod holders. This is a rod holder guaranteed to work on the shore and in the boat. One of the better inexpensive rod holders on the market is the Atwood Rod Holder. You can find them at just about any Walmart fishing department for about $15. Take the side mount for the Atwood rod holder and mount it on a 5 gallon bucket. It works great when you are fishing from the shore because the bucket comes in handy for hauling bait, tackle and other equipment. If the bucket seems tippy when your heavy rods are in it just fill the bucket with water and it is immediately stable and will hold any size rod. The bucket also comes in handy when your rods are spread out along the shoreline, you can fill the bucket with water and keep a few bullheads in it for bait so that you don’t have to run up and down the shoreline carrying bait. Here is a picture of my bucket rod holder with two rod mounts on it:

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
