Ready to go when the fish are biting, the TopWater™ is a purpose-built, enclosed fishing rod box— keeping you prepared to hit the water with up to 8 fishing rods, up to 8 ft. long, fully rigged, organized, and out of the vehicle. From spin to bait casting to fly rods, the protective foam pads and retention straps keep rods and reels safely suspended in place without getting banged around or entangled. The space below your rods makes room for low-profile tackle boxes or other wet gear. Made in the USA, this strong and rugged fishing rod box locks your gear with an included Yakima® SKS (Single Key System) lock. For added ease, the universal attachment secures the TopWater to nearly any roof rack or Yakima’s EasyRider™ and RACKandROLL™ trailers.
