Cooler: 25$
Rod holders: 20$
Epoxy & screws: 6$
The feeling when one of your plans actually works out: priceless

Have you put rods in it yet? We built the exact same setup, then moved the holder to the side on an angle. Too many back of head wacks.. ;)

Used it on Sykes yesterday, works like a charm! I considered side mounts at an angle but I didn't want to cover up the handle for when I load and unload it

Nah the plan was to go to pcola beach pier but by the time everything was ready we'd have a hour of daylight to fish, so instead of paying 7$ we went to sykes

I use a similar red with white top rolling cooler. Able to load everything I need in and on top of it. I just carry the rods in my free hand. The only thing I don't take is the kitchen sink :yes:
Works perfect! +1 advice on the rod holders. A sinker or a loose flying hook to the head would not make for a good day. Fish on :thumbsup:

I did the same with mine a couple of years ago, still working great ! You may also want to add an aerator kit to it to use as a bait or livewell.

That is a great idea. I saw one at Academy the other day. I can't remember the price, but it was a lot more than the cooler without the rod holders.
