Rod Racks

7 posts in this topic

Building and selling custom-made fishing rod racks, both for ice fishing and open water (regular sized) rods. You specify the kind (Ice or Regular) or rack, wood (typically oak), number of rod slots and stain (or you can leave unfinished). Typical 10 rod ice rod rack sells for $65 ... 10-rod open water sells for $150. You pay actual shipping costs or pick up in Grand Rapids, MN. takes a few days to build each and a couple days to stain/poly finish.

 

Let me know if you are interested ...

Just finished a pair of smaller rod racks designed for a narrow wall in a guy's fish house. He only has 9.5 inches of wall to work with, so we only got two rods per rack ... but they should still work well. They should be a good match for his cedar-paneled fish house

 

Let me know if your fish house needs some custom built rod racks ... I can make them to fit your space, wood type and number of rods needed.

Here is another version of the rod racks for Ice Castle Fishouses ... this one is made of cedar and holds 6 rods. It was installed on a cedar interior which makes for a nice modification.

 

Let me know if I can build one for your fish house!

And here is a 25 rod version (free standing) that was built for a custom rod builder ... this one made of clear pine and no finish other than the felt inserts where the rods touch.

Thanks, Walleyehooker! I appreciate the review and am glad you like it. I also appreciate you letting me make the rack for you ... I enjoyed building it.

Just finished two more rod racks ... one (second photo) is a 10-rod wall mount rack for a guy's home and the other is an 8 rod rack for a fish house. Both are pine.

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
