Garage Rod Storage Idea's

6 posts in this topic

Need a way to store my rods. I thought I had it figured out by putting them in the rafters of my pole barn. I'm guessing that the amount of dust getting in my reels is going to shorten their life spam. I need idea's especially PICTURES of what you all are doing. Thanks.

Just get the Berkely rod holders at any sporting goods store and put 'em up. You can fit 8 in each one, I believe. You can put them up horizontal or vertical. Works for me...

Go buy a 6-8" pvc pipe and a couple caps. You won't be able to store the reels on the rods this way but it will keep your rods safe and secure! An old briefcase with some foam will usually do the trick for the reels. I use alot of my summer reels for icefishing so the rod storage is a bit easier for me. Just an idea.

I do this but the pvc seems like a great idea using a suitcase w/ foam for reels :-)

Would the cold harm reels at all?

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
