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 believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
