Rope,

There are several rodcases and bags to use for storage, I use one I purchased from Cabela's, holds 6 rods and reels and 2 outside pockets for extra's. Keeps my rods handy and tangle free.

Check Thorne Bro's web site they have several rod cases to choose from.

I guess I didn't state my question clear enough.I meant to ask about the wind support poles for the portable it's self.Didn't mean to confuse everyone.Thanks.

I have a bench seat in my Eskimo I tuck the poles under the straps on the back of the backrest, nice and handy to get at and keeps them secure.

Thanks for the replies.Think I'm going to use something similar to what WTN4ICE did on his,but on the side of the sled on the inside.Does that make sense?

I just toss them on the bottom of my house. Velcro them together if needed. I have seen guys use gutter material screwed into the back of the tub and they carry poles, 1# tanks and other goodies in them.

I made a little wood locker for my rods that sits in the bottom of the Voyeaguer. Covered in blue marine carpet. Works really slick.

I lay the poles across the seats in my voyager, then run a bungy cord around the poles and the seats and they travel very nicely across the lake with either the travel cover on or not on. Then once I am at a new spot, I release the bungy cord and the poles are sitting right there on the seats for me. I turn the seats so the poles go through the gap between the seat back and the seat.

I have a pool cue type bag that I got. It is not quite long enough for the 2 longest poles, but I can get it zipped up pretty far. It also has the hot dog holders for cooking too.

I use a piece of old broom handle to clip them onto. They are one of the first things I need when setting up so having them on top makes them easily accessable.The two longer ones just lay loose beside the others.

I have my house modified. Behind the seats is a storage compartment. They just lay in there when not in use.

WTN4ICE,I sorta used your setup.I've got a Otter cottage,that's not modified.I mounted a bar behind the seat on the side of the sled front and and back.I put my adjustable bar on the bottom and hook up both ends to the bars.Then I stack the other three bars with one of their ends hooked up and put a velcro strap around them all.It's like yours only on it's side.Sounds complicated but it's really quite simple

I use the U shaped broom holders that you screw to the wall and you push the broom into it and it kind of friction holds. I have two for each pole and I have them mounted to the inside of the sled. Cheap and it works well and keeps them out of the way of everything else.

Mine usually sit in the bottom of the sled in the bottom groves out of the way. Have to do a little digging to get them out, but not a big deal since done use them that much. Most times I don't feel the need for the extra support poles (a must for cabin style). Unless it is windy, my Lodge and Pro tend to work fine without them.
