Last week I came across a post on Hobiecat.com showing a new kayak fishing accessory from Hobie. The horizontal rod holder kit allows you to mount your fishing rods securely on the side of your kayak. The soon to be released kit part# 72021060 officially holds 1 fishing rod but will allow for 2 rods “although not recommended by Hobie”.

As the photos show, your paddle will need to sit on the opposite side of your rods.

We will have to see how it performs out in the wild but this new Hobie add on looks like a great idea!

Cool! I know several guys here that have been trying to figure out the best way to get their rods through the surfzone, and this definitely looks good.

I saw that also in their latest accessories catalog, it can be used on any kayak! :lol:

good concept but fails on delivery, i have made one, well before this was publicised and it means i can still have my paddle and stake out pole secured as well as store two rods. Also less chance of damage to my rods.

I have been using this product for the last 2 years on my Native Watercraft Propel and it works very well.
