Does anyone know where the post is where someone made there own rod holder that fits into the back two rod holders that is made from PVC I believe. I can't seem to find it through search or by looking through all the threads. Thanks for the help.

That's it that was the one I was looking for thanks! I also see that you live near me too. Looking to get out tomorrow for trip number 2 in the PA. At this point I don't even get upset if I don't catch anything just enjoy getting out of the house. We should try and meet up one day.

I'm in Webster, my usual available days are Thursdays and Fridays. The rocket launcher itself was real easy to do, only real tools I used was a hacksaw and a tape measure. On mine, I just have everything pressure fit together so that I can adjust angles as needed for trolling, lines out in front or behind the boat, going under low structure, etc...

Took me all of about 30-45 minutes to put it all together. Ended up taking the 45's off the bottom, gave it to much angle and just set the pipes straight in.

Yea it looks great I came up with something close but couldn't remember the pipe size. This is my first kayak so I am having to learn new spots to fish. Normally we fish from sylvan beach in my buddy's boat but trying to do my own thing now cause lately we have been on opposite shifts. Look forward to meeting up with you some time. Thanks again for posting the pics and info.
