I just bought my first kayak and I am doing some research to figure out how I want to rig it. First up are rod holders. I initially thought I would put two flush mount rod holders behind my seat and a scotty on the rails in front of me. However, after some research I've heard that flush mount rod holders aren't good for salt water as they keep your reels down low and continually wet. So now i'm thinking of just using the flush mount as net holder and getting a crate set up with rod holders for the rods.
Anyone have any pros and cons for the flush mounts? Is what I found in my research at all accurate? Thanks in advance!
