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.

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?

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
