I use three of these...

I use three of these fishing rod holders on my sea kayaks and I have no complaints about them. They hold a fishing rod nice and secure and after several years of use they still look new. They are very rugged and strong. I have mine mounted with Scotty No. 241L Locking Side / Deck Mounts. I highly recommend the "L" locking version over the non-locking 241 because it makes repositioning the rod holder easier when confined to a sit-in kayak cockpit.

These holders are indispensable when trolling lures or you need your hands free for anything else. One challenge I encountered was how to mount them on the curved deck of a sit-in kayak. I overcame this on one boat by using a Jonny Bar by Mad Frog Gear (with the added benefit that the whole setup is completely removable with no holes drilled in your boat). On the other boat I sandwiched a flat piece of rubber between the mount bottom and the deck to squeeze and expand to help accommodate the curve of the deck.
