Yup....I don't have outriggers. I use the launcher for the middle way back line. Sometimes I also use the side ones trolling, as they stick out at a 45, see pic in my sig. When drummin and bassin on the hook, we always throw a bait waaaaaaay out the back with a circle hook and lock the reel up. It goes up there in the middle. Pretty convenient.Just curious, does anyone use the rod holders on the rocket launchers for anything else other than holding extra rods, net, gaff ect... Can they be used, lets say, as a rod holder for trolling?
