Rod Straps by Todays Tackle

Recommended Posts

I used the Rod Straps by Todays Tackle again this past weekend when fishing for walleyes. I attached them to the inside of my portable on the side pole. Made fishing a lot easier out on the ice especially with the cold conditions. Kept my rod up away from the ground where it didn't freeze up and it worked great as a strike indicator for those walleyes that would come up on occation and just slowly grab the bait and drop to the bottom. When a walleye would take the bait the rod tip would slowly go down and the walleye felt no tension.

I also rigged an extra Rod Strap on the opposite side of the portable for a rod that I wasn't using so that I had easy access if I wanted to switch. All I had to do was pull the velcro strap and I was fishing with a new rod. Then I would put the previous rod I was fishing with right on that Rod Strap and it was up out of the way and available for use once I needed it with easy access. A lot of uses for the Rod Strap, these are just a few. I've used them for crappies too, and they work great!

They are $5.99 plus shipping and handling. If you go to the link above you can buy them off that site. Todays Tackle is the same company that makes the Ice Buster Bobber.

I will have some with me at the Winni ICE Series event this weekend that I can demo if needed.

They are very easy to set-up and can be taken down and stored even easier. They will fit right in your pocket.

Good Fishin,

The "Rod Straps" are selling for $5.99 per 2-pack plus shipping. Good Quality at a cheap price! They were designed to keep your rod and reel off the Ice or ground and NOT in the water. Last year I brought a friend of mine Ice Fishing and let him use an expensive rod and reel. Next thing I heard was the Klapoosh down the hole! Not good! So I decided to make an inexpensive, versatile rod holder that attaches to almost Anything. Velcro - quick on and off. I've used them as a Deadstick rod holder (it allows your rod to bend down when a fish pulls) and attached the Rod Strap to my 4-wheeler rack, Snowmobile rack (just make sure to line up ice hole below the rod tip) Permanent house, Portable shacks (to the tubes), 5-gallon buckets (cut a 1" slot in top of bucket and attach strap), Coleman pop up chairs, and even rod stakes that are pushed into the shore line when bank fishing. It's a great peace of mind not worrying about losing or stepping on a rod. I like to stack up 2 rods (one above the other)with the Rod Straps, in my portable ice shack. That way I can switch to what ever rod is needed. You can see pictures of the Rod Strap on this site. Have fun, Bruce Mosher

Sorry about not replying asap. I just got back from LOW. Fished the last 3 days. Caught a few Walleyes, Big Perch, And lost a couple big walleyes in the hole. I will not be able to make it to the Winnie this weekend. But you can order from Rick or my wedsite www.todaystackle.com I will try to make it to LOW Ice Series. You guys will like the Rod Straps. I will start to get them into a few stores shortly. Lots of uses for them! Good luck fishing, Bruce Mosher

I picked up a set at the ST. Paul Ice show in Decemeber. The best way that I've found to use them is when perch fishing and even walleye fishing, it pays to have another rod rigged, baited and ready to go down the hole as soon as the fish is out to keep the school under you. I just let the one pole hang beside me in my Otter and it's ready whenever needed.

    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
    • Great showing by the team last night! It was exciting to see the effort level way up and the new guys seem to plug into their roles well. Much more excited for the rest of the season!
    • I run 6lb on two rods and 4lb on two. I like the (possibly imagined) extra feel on the 4lb for light bites. I run swivels on my rods too, unless there's a very finicky bite
