This is what I installed in a service bay. It can actually store 12 rods (reverse direction for seven thru twelfth rod) if need be. The foam inserts are deep. $10 at Bass Pro. I have a mixture of bass and trout rods. Been using since 2000.

My dad asked me the same question once, so I took him into the garage and asked why he needed all those golf clubs in his bag.

I live with fear every day, and sometimes she lets me go fishing.

Fishing rod storage

Try this. On my GT 364, I used bungee cords to strap down 6 pvc pipes (3.5" OD) above the propane tank. It gives me plenty of room, keeps poles from getting tangled with each other and prevents having rods and reels hanging down in the pass through. (Sorry, haven't figured out how to rotate picture yet)

I fish bass tournaments and the wife asked me why I need 20+ rods with me. Then she fished a couples tournament with me and watched me switch rods over and over, each with a different lure tied on, until I found the magic setup. Then it clicked. All the time I would have wasted tying on or possibly not have bothered tying on and didn't catch the fish if I didn't have a locker full of rods.

Now she emails me deals on tackle when she find them. Hell, while I was away fishing a BASS open she organized all my totes and boxes by lure, size and color.

Love my DW and fishing partner.

Currently I throw 4-6 rods in sleeves in the storage over our dinette. Reels are put in a Pelican case.

I have purchased or made Soooo many types of Rod holders.

The rope idea looks like a good one. Could be improved by using Screws with washers instead of staples. Also, maybe use 3/4" strapping.
