R227 Trolling Setup

Recommended Posts

I am looking to outfit my 227 for Lake Michigan salmon fishing.

I am leaning towards a Traxstech Trolling bar.  

Does anybody know the distance between the flush mount rod holders?

Also, if you have any pictures of your trolling setup I would love to see how you do it!

I made trolling rails using gimbal mounts and PT 2x6.  I put a 2' and 1' track on each.  The biminy support comes down between the two tracks through a hole in the 2x6.  The whole unit comes right out if I want to use the boat with out the tracks and rod holders.  I only have one pic available which I attached but I can get you more of the rails I made if you want.  They are in my garage.  I can talk to you about a lot of trolling on this boat as I too fish Lake Michigan and Lake Erie.  Not sure how to give my contact info privately on this forum.  I'm near Rockford, MI.
