Custom Pedestal Bait Holder - compliments to RK!

Recommended Posts

I did a complete boat modification last summer and am slowly working the accessories into the boat....just finally got a pedestal seat last week for the front deck and what pedestal seat can be without a bait holder! A couple hours into each fishing trip I have baits all over the front deck and I'm usually almost a bit OCD about organization so the baits everywhere drive me a little nuts....haha. I did some searching on here yesterday and found the post where RK talked about his CA box.....thanks RK, the 3" plastic downspout worked awesome for this.

$12 total, 30 minutes to make and it was ready for baits this morning. I got 2 sections of 10' plastic 3" gutter downspouts and already had one tube of liquid nails (that stuff is aweesome!) I was looking at it when it was all put together and was trying to figure out a place for the tools....then I looked over in the corner of the garage and saw the 1" black PVC - perfect! I will probably will do another one for the back pedestal and make an actual CA box to fish out of other boats. Thought some of you might like a look....

To make that one better, take your bandsaw and notch a each side 2x so the hooks sink in and keep the baits from mixing anymore then they already will.

I wondered if they would be okay like that or not..I'll bust out the dremmel with the cutting wheel tonight.

Shoot2kill---Looks awsome--I need one for my boat.

Anyone know where you can buy one of these for those of us who don't have the time or desire to make one?

Thorne Brothers or Rollie and Helens has the "Pedistal Pal"....for 70 bucks.

I was just going to repair the one I had bulit out of round PVC, but after seeing his one I am off to the hardware store to get some downspout. Thanks for sharing!

Shoot's quality on the box and the picture (cheap cell phone technology at its finest!) is better than mine but I decided to do this in an unused livewell and it freed up some deck space. I put the hook notches in and so far am happy with it. A $6 abrasive wheel on a table saw makes it real easy to get clean cuts. Thanks goes to my bro for the final assembly.

The price is great. The white tubes will shade your lures so they don't fade in the summer sun. Thanks for sharing. Off to the hardware store.

The stuff I used was 3X3 and got it at Fleet Farm. If I did it again I'd maybe use the 3X4 stuff though as the 3X3 doesn't accomodate 2 bigger baits at the same time that well.

    • Nope.  It has been going on long enough to avoid that. 
    • Sous Vide... 😀 If not sous vide, then a dutch oven with a steamer thing. If it is too big for a dutch oven  with one of those folding steamer things then I would dig out my 18 quart roaster oven .  I think they even come with a rack.  
    • I think maybe Lund was too aggressive with the price increases in recent years of easy money or something.  When I bought my provee in 98, the difference between it and the comparable Alumacraft was only a few hundred bucks on a 20k package.   And the trim on the Lund looked nicer and more durable.     Some years later and I was at a boat show or something and the prices on ProVs had gone up and the difference was much more.      Presumably a deliberate decision to make ProV a premium product and insert a few other models  in there.   
    • Great call on the chuck, I'm still contemplating it, it sounds fun to give it a try though. At this point I'm leaning on pouring some smoke at it and trying a batch of pastrami,  just have to figure out a way to steam it in the end..
    • Minky, what lb test are you using?   I’m running 2 and 3 Micro Ice on pretty much everything I have for panfish.  I’ve been impressed with what it can handle along with its fish ability.  Pairing with the right rods helps a bunch too.
    • I had to do the same fix on my ‘Ol 96er.
    • Can you leave a propane tank on all summer or does that have to come off at the end of season
    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
