Hello everyone. I’m new to the forum and a proud new 2020 SX190 owner. I bought this boat for my wife and young daughters comfort over a fishing boat but I would love to get out on the Ohio River for some catfishing with my daughter (We live close to Louisville Ky). I have found that there are limited if any places that rod holders could be attached and I would like to figure something out to throw a couple catfish rods in. Any SX190 owners out there who have come up with anything cheap and neat for this purpose? Thanks in advance!

Those look like they would work great! Do the cup holders in the swim deck area slide out pretty easy?

Welcome to the boards.

I've got no good info for you on the road holders. I'm no fisherman.

Just wanted to say hi from right across the river in Georgetown, IN!

Hi Dan, are you able to close the bimini with these on or do you just remove them when you come off the water? I just ordered some thanks for the heads up
Yes I do, no problem at all. Comes with an Allen wrench that you can adjust positions etc... I’ll take a pic later and show you my set up.

They will rest nice when the Bimini is down as well. If you put out the Bimini to full shade you will have to adjust the angle of the rod holders to suit your rig set up.

Yep thats perfect! We have 30 degree rod/cup holders for the rear deck but I get wake wash up the deck all the time when I come off plane so didn't want to stow rods in them while I'm underway and have them constantly get dunked in lake juice lol. These wil work perfect. Thanks!
