Rod Holders for Perm houses

13 posts in this topic

Want to install some rod holders in my permanent house - looking for what others are using.  Thinking about the ones that hold up to 6 rods but they are over 12" in length and the wall I want to put them on has about 10".   Other option was thinking about making my own out of 1-1/2" PVC.   Seem some that hang from the ceiling - not sure I want that or not.  

 

Any pics would be helpful.

Thanks,

If you want something a custom size I could most likely make some for you out of Baltic Birch plywood on my cnc.

On my last build I did holders on the underside of my bunk.  For the longer (28"+) rods it worked fine.  Over time, my shorter rods ended up bouncing out going across lakes, and I probably broke 5-6 of them.  I think the vertical orientation works better for different lengths.

 

You may have seen it, but I used spring loaded "broom holders" on my new build.

Mine is pretty simple,  depending on how many rods, get yourself 2 pieces of pine 1x4, again length depends on how many rods.  Drill 1.5 inch holes threw each piece lets say six times if you have six rods.  Mount them on your wall about 20 inches apart.  about a 2 dollar rod holder

It's going to be hard to hold 6 rods in 10 inches isn't it? I know my cheapies from Fleet get pretty crowded, it's the reel handles that take the space.

right - thinking I will only get 4 rods in that area.   Might have to make another one that I can put on the wall in the bathroom.  Most likely will make them out of wood or 1-1/4" PVC.   Will only be used when on the ice - not while driving to/from lakes.

Did similar build. 1” PVC pipe X 1” long secured to a 1.5” wood strip every 5” for handle end. Tip end small U shape holder from 1.25” X 1” wood block and 1/8 piece nailed to 1.5” wall mount strip. Filled gap with 1.25” X 1.25” Foam Air Conditioner Weather strip. Cut a small V in top of Weather Strip and single cut about ¾ down. Built two, one in front one in back holding 12 rods. Rods never bounce out during transport on road or rough ice.

 

Extra PVC made some on-ice rod holders work well in house or on ice in Hub. Cross bar folds for compact storage.

Did mine vertical, that way the reel handle isnt so much a problem, can fit more just by rotating the handle.  my holes are only 2 inches apart.  Love the rod holder pics papadarv.  gonna make a couple.

Just seen you have only 10" to work with.  Yeah thats only room for about 4.

I like this setup.  What if you flipped everyone other (PVC end to tip end) rod end for end.  Would you be able to cut that space way down?   Was thinking that the 2nd rod - the tip end could actually go thru or near the reel end on the top rod ?  Maybe between the rod handle and the reel.  You might just need a little wider board to mount the two opposing holders that close together.

Here are some pics of a rod holder that I made for holding the rod while fishing.   It is 16" long and the 1-1'4" PVC is 11" long and the base is made out of a 1x4" board.  I like these in that they fold up nice when not in use just by removing the 4" cotter pin and put back into the storage hole.  Can easily get 10 of them in a 5 gallon pail.

You might gain an inch between rods saving 5 inches total. My rods stay in the holder at all times. Made sure there was no way the rods would ever make contact with each other while bounding down the road or on rough ice. Switching end every other rod end and squeezing space will put the reel next to or on the adjacent rod tip. With minor wiggle room on handle end, there is a chance larger reels will bump the adjacent rod tip causing a weak spot in the rod with closer spacing. I set the spacing based on the longest distance from handle top to bottom of reel.

I also have all 12 rods rigged (6 in front, 6 in back) with jigs, hook, slip bobber or any other variety of rigging for the trip. Packing rods closer together provides and opportunity to tangle hooks, jigs, etc. If the line is not in the water, you won't catch fish. This holder setup makes for very quick rig exchange. The $1 bill on the holder reminds one to keep line in the water. "If you want goats milk, you need to put the hay down where the goats can get at it - so to speak"

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
