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.

      These are definitely for laying back, not sitting up. I can honestly sit in these for hours ... but thanks for looking!

      Ash river ice went out yesterday, the lake is about 10 days after, so ice out should be before May 1st.

      If you are interested in a new Adirondack Chair, or set of chairs, and would like some built just for you now is a great time. These generally take less than a week to build, depending on quantity and the finish you choose.   These are hand-built using premium cedar lumber that will last for many years. You can choose to have it stained or leave unfinished. If unfinished it will have virtually no maintenance and will weather to a pleasing gray color. These are Xtra-Large heavy duty chairs using mostly 2 x 4, 2 x 6 and 2 x 8 lumber for frame pieces and 1 x 2 and 1 x 4 slats. They feature a double contour for maximum comfort - you can literally sit in these for hours and feel great. Perfect for the cabin, lakeshore, around the fire-pit or on your home deck.   Single chair - Unstained: $225 Siingle chair - Stained - $250 Two chairs - Unstained: $425 Two chairs - Stained: $450   Higher quantities are negotiable. PM me with questions or requests.   These are hand built and available for pick up in Grand Rapids, MN.

      Here is a link to the latest on The Wright County AIS program.  http://www.co.wright.mn.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1057 It is dead for now. They may try to spin this in the future, so watch for other clever ways they will try to privatize the lakes.  See the full board discussion in the video replay, the boat inspection topic starts at 1:49:50

      I think we'll be safe for open water on the opener.  I'm hoping for open water the weekend before.  That will be a close call. Forecast looks good.
