Horizontal rod storage for jon boat

Post by buckmaster27012 » 14 Sep 2016, 11:47

looking for something that will hold 6 rod horizontally down the side of a jon boat. i've got a deep boat so width isnt a concern if can just find something that will work. got the 4 rod storage from berkley with the twist and lock on one end that works great but always have two other rods bouncing around in the boat. got to be something out there for six rods. i would need to be able to lock rods in place so they want be falling out. thanks

I have a marriage license and a fishing license, but I only carry one in my wallet.

i've seen the berkley, i'd have to rig something up to make sure they stay in place. i like the other option, i'll be looking into it. I see they have a 2 ft option may be the way to go. thanks for the suggestions.

I have the Berkley type. Works so-so.

Yeah - I'm not the biggest fan of the berkley, but for $10 you can afford to replace the foam (which your fishing line will cut up unless you put your rods in socks first) every few years and still be no where near the cost of the other options out there.
