This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Due to their shape, size, and delicate components, fishing poles aren’t the easiest pieces of equipment to put in storage when you finish up your day on the water. These rod holders come in an array of styles, from freestanding structures on wheels to wall-mountable models for putting your gear on display. Some can even be installed directly to a boat rail. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best fishing pole holder on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 14, 2019:

Wanted to make sure to give users a chance to consider models that can be used to hold rods in the boat itself, which is the case with the Brocraft Tackle and Amarine-made Tournament. The Organized Fishing Horizontal and Berkley Rack are both serviceable options; users will just want to be aware that they’ll have to deal with a tight fit if most of their rods are on the large side. Noted that the Rush Creek Cart features casters, which some fishermen may find useful.
