Although a lot of bass boat, center console, and inshore skiff devotees are scandalized by the very idea, the fact is that most pontoon boats have quite a bit going for them as fishing vessels. That being said, they lack many fishing boat features — rod and tackle storage, bait and live wells, trolling motor rigging, and so on — have to be added to pontoon boats. Among your first priorities should be a convenient, designated place to store rods where they’re easy to access yet stay protected. That's why we have designed a selection of pontoon-specific fishing rod holders, racks, and lockers. These rod holders are often mounted near the forward corners of the boat, close to where most fishing takes place and well clear of the Bimini top.
