Spend more time fishing and less time organizing your gear with this enclosed fishing rod carrier. Carries up to 8 fully-rigged, 8' long fishing rods and low-profile tackle boxes. Includes locks for rods and carrier.

by:

I was tired of bending rod eyes and getting unnecessary reel rash from traveling with rods in the back of my truck on long road trips. This is also a great way to be able to stop and have lunch/dinner or run in a bait shop without any worries.




by:

Shipped fast, easy to install. Easily holds 8 rods as advertised. Bolted it to my flatbed for secure rod storage. Works great.




by:

I ordered this on a Thursday afternoon and it arrived Saturday. Some of the fastest shipping I've seen, Thanks Etrailer! The box looks to be high quality and should hold some extra things besides the 8 poles. I'm thinking of life jackets and maybe your raingear. Mounting looks to be simple with padded Ubolts and wingnuts. I'm mounting this box on my Malone Microsport Kayak trailer. I'll update you with pictures within the next week. Also, Etrailer matched a lower price I found with no issues.




by:

Great box for my fishing needs. Have my tackle, paddle, and rods in there while kayak fishing with room for a few more items.




by:

Looks good so far. Only mounted once seems very secure left / right and front / back/ has a good bit of play lifting from the front upwards left / right. This seems to be due to the only mounting point is in the center of the box. Time will tell.




by:

I placed the order with etrailer.com and I had it was delivered to my house very quickly. Everything was packaged nicely and arrived to me unharmed.
The Yakima TopWater Fishing Rod Box s amazing! I absolutely love this thing. I am able to get 8 set ups and a micro power pole anchor in it with no issues.
Shipping was fast, communication was clear, and the whole experience was great. I gave them a 4 because a small part of my order was wrong when I received it. I contacted etrailer immediately and they very quickly shipped me the correct part........ah you know what, they made a mistake.....but they were perfect everywhere else. Im changing it to a five star. Will be buying the Yakima Skinny Warrior next and I will be buying it from etrailer. Thanks!




by:

just got it, will test out soon, but im excited. the box is of equal construction and materials as my old yakima rocket box. can't wait to bring it to the keys and do some fishing.




by:

Great product! The carrier has safely carried my spinning rods up and down the East Coast.




by:

super fast delivery! The Top water box is well made locks are real nice. strong and sturdy construction. box could open a bit more but it's going to be fine

  • How Many Broken Down Fishing Rods Will Fit in the Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier
    The Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04088 can hold up to 8 full length fishing rods. If you have to break them into pieces though then you will likely take up the space of 2 rods so that capacity would be reduced to 4 fishing rods. This all depends on how long your rods are though. If they are longer than 8 feet they need to be broken down. Anything under that will fit with no problems.

  • Does Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier Fit Yakima OverHaul HD Truck Bed Ladder Rack
    Yes, the Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04088 will absolutely fit on the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack # Y01151-58. You have two options for mounting the TopWater to the OverHaul bars, either with the TopWater's included clamps or by adding the SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit for Yakima TopWater # Y04094 which will allow you to mount the carrier to the OverHaul's T-slot (channels) on top of the bars.

  • How to Mount Yakima TopWater into T-Slot Channels on Crossbars or Roof Platform with T-Slots
    In order to mount a Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier - Locking - 8 Fishing Poles # Y04088 to a Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform like the # RR42114BF you'll need to use the SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit for Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Pole Carrier # Y04094. This will allow you to mount the TopWater in the T-slot channels that are on the Pioneer platform. You are also able to mount these directly to your factory crossbars without the Pioneer platform attached using the included hardware.

  • Fishing Rod Carrier that Can Fit Top Channels of Thule TracRac SR Ladder Rack
    I have a similar solution, but the Thule Rod Vault does not have a T-bolt adapter to allow it to fit the top channels of your TracRac ladder rack so instead you'd want to go with the Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier - Locking - 8 Fishing Poles # Y04088 and the SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit for Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Pole Carrier # Y04094 and you'd be set. This is a similar carrier setup to the Thule.

  • Best Roof Rack for Top Water for a 2017 Ford Expedition EL
    The absolute best roof rack setup for transporting the TopWater Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04088 and the LoadWarrior Cargo Basket # Y07070-74 on your 2017 Ford Expedition EL comes from Yakima. You can use their 60" JetStream Crossbars # Y00426, with the TimberLine Towers # Y00147. The TopWater is 18" wide while the LoadWarrior is 39" wide so this gives you 3" to spare. I have attached an installation video of this setup on a 2019 Expedition that you can check out.

  • Best Roof Rack and Four Fishing Rod Holder for a 2019 Ford Ranger
    The roof rack I recommend for a 2019 Ford Ranger is the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System which consists of part # Y00425, part # Y00146, and part # Y06124. The Yakima JetStream Crossbar System is one of the best options on the market which has aero shaped crossbars which work to reduce wind noise/drag and rubber padded feet to protect the vehicle's finish. The fishing rod carrier I recommend for the 2019 Ford Ranger with Yakima JetStream Crossbar System is the Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing...

  • Will Yakima Fishing Rod Carrier Fit Inno Truck Bed Cargo Rack
    Both the Yakima TopWater Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04088 and the Yakima DoubleHaul Rooftop Fly Rod Carrier # Y04087 fit with square crossbars so they will fit great on the Inno Truck Bed Cargo Rack # INRT102-65. You will probably end up having a bit of either carrier hanging out the back of your truck though as the TopWater is 102" long and the DoubleHaul is 131" long. Normally these are installed on top of a vehicle so since this will be in the bed you'll likely need a safety flag...

  • Is Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Good for Low Wind Noise on a 2015 Toyota 4Runner
    The Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7503-TH7503 will be a great option for your 2015 Toyota 4Runner Trail with the roof rails. It has a low profile, is a pretty simple installation, and you can add locks with the Thule One-Key System # TH450400. The aerodynamic design helps to cut down on wind noise and drag so you will be happy with the results of this system. For a fairing I recommend the 32" Long AirScreen XT # TH62WV which will give you good coverage for even more wind noise reduction. There...

  • 2022 BMW X3 Roof Rack and Fishing Rod Carrier Options
