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?
I don't see any screws?

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
