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.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
