Walleye Rueben

Rod Tube ideas for Boat Rod Storage Locker

Question

Walleye Rueben

I would like to build a fishing rod storage locker into the bow/floor of my 1999 Lund Tyee. I would like to find the storage tubes that they put in more current models, or something that will work in their place.

I have thought of PVC, but would prefer something that is tapered...I don't need 2 1/2 to 3 inches of tube for the tip end of the rod. As I get towards the bow of the boat, the space that I have to work with gets smaller and smaller.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Can you sew or know someone who does? I made some rod sleeves for my boat out of heavy nylon cordura with a vinyl backer. The vinyl lining helps prevent hooks from sticking the fabric and they keep the rods from tangling together in the rod locker. They work great and the best thing is that I made 6 of them for about $8.00. I got the fabric at Wal - mart and made them 60" (the fabric width) long, and tapered from 3" at the end to 6" near the reel.

if you use the PVC start with the 2 1/2 then buy the reducer [one end is 2 1/2 the other is 2] to go to 2 and so forth. by the time you get to the end, should be able to bring it down to 1 or so

I use rod sleeves I got at FF. Not ideal, but they don't tangle up.

You can purchase a rod tub kit from a Lund dealer. We used to install them in the side compartment of Explorers/Anglers that didn't come with them from the factory. They come with the tubes and a plate to hold them in place.

      I started using a chain hoist like this 2 years ago. Much easier for one or two people than a rope block & tackle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004PX1F9S/ref=psdc_511406_t1_B009F257DE?th=1

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.

      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅

      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster
