Maybe you guys have seen this stuff already? I thought it was a pretty good collection of rod rack ideas.

This one caught my eye too. I also like the idea of a flat rack like Jeff's because of casting. I think I will build both and see which I like better. I did like this one though.

That is very cool looking I have thought of putting a linning inside my rack just to hold extra things. Are you going to do that.

I want to make this one.I have thought of either rivets for the liner or snaps. Pobably snaps so I can have options like a live well? I have seen rod racks that utilize a foam grip to hold the poles but I like the pool noodle idea.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I like the multi-tasking aspect of the pool noodles. I have also considered spraying expansion foam into the pvc (or even lighter abs) pipe to aid in buoyancy. However, the pvc is more visible should the rack take off on its own. The joys of pvc (tinker toys) pipe and all the possibilities!

My previous post I am talking about the flat rack with the liner and using the noodles to hold rods as in the picture. After looking back at my post it didn't seem clear which system I was talking about.

Anyone made progress in the rod rack department? I have mine close to completion. Hey Floater you ever get on the one in picture? As soon as I get the liner configured I will post pix of my creation.

Ok so I found plans on making a carmera mount for your tube as well. I will try to get it posted later tomorrow.

That will be cool. My rack so far will take a small cut bait table from a different project so it has become a multi tasker. It already got me thinking of a camera mount for taping the "big one". When I get it all together you'll see what I mean. So ya, lets see those plans. Hey what about for a fish finder? BBQ and a porta potty?

Lots of great ideas here guys....I am just worried about losing a setup while fishing. I use to carry 3 or 4 rods out with me but after losing a $300 setup in the harbor I started fishing with only one rod. Maybe in the future I might give one of these designs a shot.

I feel that last statement, I can get in hot water when I start to get ready for a fishing trip. Time management right, I mean she needs to understand how I have to manage my time for my trip Thumbs Up

Maybe one day he'll chime in on this forum.
