I use a rope that a gentleman gave me at Ocean crest. It's basically a slipknot setup. It is very easy to tie and flexible. I was told the idea came from Florida for tarpon on the end of the pier. It gives unlike rod holders which would break on occasion.

One end of the rope has a loop tied in it that is about 2-3. I lay the rope over rod in front of the reel. On the left side I have the loop. I pull the loop under the rail to the same side. Then pull the other side under the rail and cross over the top of the rod butt. Then pitch the rope and feed it through the loop, about 3 or so inches. Then you have the loose end you can pull to release. I make sure to keep a leash on mine just in case some gets any ideas.

I had to practice it several times, but finally got it. One thing to make sure you do is keep everything tight. The less slack in the rope the better.

Thanks again John at the end of Oceancrest.

Look up "ReelKingin ReelKingin"on FB. He fishes off Kure pier and has the best custom made gaffs, pole holders, anything related to pier king fishing. You can see pictures of all his products on FB. He responds pretty quick. The rope method works fine but it's not better then a rod holder in my opinion.
