Ice Rod Rack for Wheel House

9 posts in this topic

What do you guys use for rod racks in the wheel house?  Looking for something that I can put on wall or roof without worrying about rods bouncing out while driving.  Looking online i have seen a couple different options but I am not sure which ones are better.  They offer ones with foam pads that grip the rod and others that have slots and holes to lay rods in.

Berkley makes a nice ceiling mount one that has cams on one end so your tips don't fall out of them when traveling I have them in my topper too

You can do the same thing with 2 pieces of a 1x4 how ever long you want.  Hole saw about every 2 inches with a bracket to mount wherever.

This is what I did and very seldom have a rod bounce out.

I did something similar to this as well.   But I think I will add another row near the top of the rod tips to keep them separated a little better.  Then just slide the rod tip through the top row and drop handle into bottom holder.  Depending on the eyelet size on your rods you might be able to use a smaller diameter PVC for the top.   You may also want to make the top row PVC a little longer to really hold the rods in place.

How is your sheeting attached?
I don't see any screws?

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
    • Are you saying then that the endorsement by the KKK didn't garnish votes from silent believers in the Klan? Clintons "embracement" of BLM probably cost her votes.
    • Being endorced by BLM is as bad or worse as being endorced by the KKK. The difference is that Hillary embraced BLM and Trump didnt acknowledge the Klan.
    • Eugenics was widely accepted in this country in the 1920's in the USA and around the world. The Germans went overboard with it.  Eugenics has been around since Plato. The KKK and other groups are basically the only ones in the USA that still believe in it and they are the ones who endorsed the Pres Elect.
