Need help in build a tripod rod stand

Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

have anyone ever built a tripod rod stand?

 

my beaches are full of little rocks all over and is very hard and

difficult to stick deeply in the sand a normal rod holder pike,

sometimes I use a PVC tube but it goes just at 3-5" deep and

its not enough to hold the weight of rod, also sometimes I bait fishing

over rocks so there is no place to use a spike rod holder, I think my best

bet is one of those tripods but they are kind of expensive plus shipping

to Mexico make them little bit more expensive, then I was wondering

if any have a home-made fishing tripod plans or pictures biggrin.gif

 

something like this

I have made a few from good quality camera tripods and surveyor tripods which I picked up at yard sales or flea markets for $5. You can also buy the components to build your own classic English style too . Google Ian Golds Tackle Developements or Veals , either one supplies Ian Golds parts to build your own.

Lookat a metal rod spike. Some come with thin ends that go into rocky areas pretty nicely. The top is just like a reg pole holder. Works for me in my rock invested areas...

 

PS...thin alum bends easily

All my sandspikes have a block of hardwood that i bolt to the top of the aluminum angle and i just use my foot to push it really deep into the sand.I also use aluminum rods for a sandspike so there are two contact points that go really deep into the sand.No fish yet has pulled them over,they work great.
