Looking for a good condition downnigger that will sit in a rod holder for pulling a dredge. Penn or Canon. Prefer pickup in Wilmington. Email is dmmayo@gmail.com. Thanks.

be sure to have a good backing plate on that rod holder as many dredges will put a good bit of stress on the holder.

Thanks, they are gemlux bluewater rod holders. They should be stout enough.

The backing plate is not about the rod holder, it is about distributing the load on the fiberglass.

No matter what brand you use, there is little wood or fiberglass left between the cutout and the 3 bolt holes.

It is about the rod holder here. Look them up. No bolt holes. A large flange hex nut on the bottom.

Maybe for people that dont have a solid surface to mount it to? I have seen plenty of down riggers on boats with standard rod holders and these are MUCH stronger. I pull a 50W with a planer on it and it handles it fine.

I do appreciate the help here.

I will have to agree with wolfish on these particular rodholders he has, should be fine on rodholders I would depending on size of dredge use a pully system to relieve pressure on the boom of downrigger

Get a Penn. Cannon are to flexible and the drag washers suck on cannons.

By the way I have a Penn that I will sell cheap but have no mount. The counter is broken but if your using it for a dredge then that doesn't matter. $80

Or I will sell you a full outfit for $300 with a great working downrigger and all mounts.
