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,
Matt Johnson

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.

    • Odd, looks like home made brackets on the ends?  May be they had them for some kind of tarp outside?
    • Just picked up a 1978 Bethany compact 560. Got it set up but I can't figure out what these 2 adjustable poles are for.  Anyone know? 
    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence?
