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?

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
