Transom Trolling Bar

Recommended Posts

I’m considering adding a Traxtech transom trolling bar across the back of my 21’ Hydrasports WA. I currently run two Cannon Digitroll 10’s mounted to tracks on both gunnels. Would like to add a 3rd DR to the spread and thinking the transom bar would be a less cluttered alternative. Boat is powered by a 150 HP outboard.
Does anyone use such a system and what are the pros and cons?
Thank you very much!

I've got the Traxtech trolling bar on my 97 Penn Yan 22ft Outrage. It was an expensive way to get a 3rd rigger on a new to me boat back in 2013. Boat has a big storage compartment that stretches for about 3 to 4 feet along transom area where you would want to mount a middle rigger. Valuable storage too that I did't want to lose. So I went with the trolling bar as a way to mount that middle rigger and keep the storage compartment. Its very sturdy as a mount for the rigger. Its a track so I have a traxtech rod holder on far left and right ends that i usually will use for my outdown rigger rods. I've got 48" traxtech track on starboard and port gunnels for outdown riggers and 4 ajustable rod holders on each side..Dipseys and board rods are run off the gunnel track rod holders. The boat is a I/O with a dog house.Anyhow love the setup it catches lots of fish. No regrets on the trolling bar.
