Portable organizer.

Recommended Posts

I have got an otter portable fish house. I was wondering if anyone knows where you can find some sort of organizer to hold depth finder, poles, takle, and other ice fishing stuff.

Croxton pond has a fishing bag that holds a vex, up to 8 poles, tackle, and whatever else you want to put in it. It was ~$50 when I saw them at Cabelas.

I have seen that Otter makes a few organizationals pieces. It is a trough that runs across the sled to put poles and longer items in. The best ones are ones made using a "template" and creating a very good way to organize your gear. But you can't beat a few milk crates and some nylon straps.

Good Luck!

Like anyfish said above, Croxton has great "orgainizer" for tackle, rods, vexilar, and all odds and ends. I'm sure you could find these at any local sporting goods store.

That thing looks nice, but don't seats get in the way or do you gotta yank those out?

Why not design and make your own organizer? Cheap storage tubs w/covers are available at Target, WalMart, Menards, et al. in a variety of shapes and sizes. A local liquor store gives away empty cardboard wine and liquor boxes, if you ask for them. They can be cut to custom fit into the storage tubs... A sturdy Italian wine box designed to hold six large bottles is my choice for a custom rod organizer for my six rods and tip ups.

I have one medium tub that holds my underwater camera and sonar units, and a spare charged battery. Another tub holds my heater, lantern, propane stove, hoses and accessories. Another tub holds my spare clothing, camera, ipod, GPS, etc. Need to add another tub? Hey! No big problem... The tubs with the essential items fit snugly in my portable shelter sled... All the other tubs can be stacked neatly in my vehicle. Sometimes, specific tubs can be left at home if I don't need the items for a specific trip...

It's a pleasure to have everything organized just the way I want it... And it's easy to change something, if your initial arrangement can be improved upon.

But, as always, there are discriminating fisherman who object to the price... it's simply too low!

Good luck, whatever your decision...

I have a quickflip 3, and organized storage was a big problem for me, too. I tried a few different designs, and I ended up with a cheap functional setup. In the front, under the seat I mounted an organizer made from a hanging sweater organizer. It is almost 5 feet long and has 6 compartments about 6" wide, 12" deep, and 12" tall. I got 2, 3/4 inch plywood strips 3 inches x 5' long and stapled the organizer to either side. It got it at wallyworld for $12, and spray bombed it black. I mounted it under the seat horizontally with the open side facing up. Screw the wood directly to the sled on the "fishing side", and you can hang the back on the rear seat support with zip ties or screw it to something. This works great to organize tip ups, tackle boxes, beer, pop, gps, maps, extra hats and gloves, etc, anything smaller that would fit. Behind the seats I have 3 plastic hanging file crates that can hold bait buckets, vexi, camera, etc. I lay my auger on top and bungee it down. It works great, looks nice, and I did it for under $30.

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
