Is that 1.5" PVC? I have some spare from the rod holders I made for the boat that would work great for this. Nice idea and thanks for sharing.

haha ok i thought you were teasin.

JimBuck, i think it was 1 1/4in but im sure 1.5 will be just fine.

what i did was i drilled a hole in the PVC so i could fit the screw head all the way through and then just screw in the on side of the PVC so it wouldnt restrict the rod going through.

Functional..Yup..I like it!

Maybe router a notch on the top of the tubes so the reels sit tight in a slot so they do not rotate and try to tangle?

If you angle the notch a bit, it may help lock the real stems in place and keep the reels from trying to jump out if you hit a bump?

The Blue Genz Box is adaptable, it lends itself to Tweaks preaty easily...always like that about it.

I have a board mounted on the back rack on my ATV with pvc tubes for holding rods. It works great when hole hopping and you're not in the house. Great minds think alike.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
