Could some of you post some pictures how you have you boat set up to store 12' to 16' trolling rods to keep them tangle free

Cumberland crappie rod transport rack. Works great on the lake and going down the road.

I'm "old school" .... I break them down & put them into "rod socks", then store them in my boat's rod locker. Then again, I rarely take more than 5 rods for myself (3 long rods & 2 casting rods), and my partners rarely bring more than 3-4 of their own.

Vet......if your going to spider rig you need long poles to get your baits further away from the boat. I started with 10 footers then switched to 12 footers. Now I am using 14 footers......it makes a lot of difference.

I use mostly 10 foot and 7 footers. I have no problem with catching fish using these and my boat ain't camo color. However, I do have some 12 footer I use on cranks. Lots of it depends on where u located and what water u fish and the rest is personal preferences.

Probably would be, if you have no particular way to store or transport them otherwise. You'd just have to get a holder that was sized to that length of rod.

I got the old stove pipe type holders for the water. They hold about any size/length pole. Got these off ebay used. Cleaned thee up and thee look nu.

When running the road with the boat , I just bungee cord the poles to my deck. If traveling any distance,I usually just leave my boat home and bum a ride for someone who has pity on me.

Pay attention to the folks who use their gear so much that they have to put grip tape over their rod handles. They fish a lot and have been there done that.

This is how I do it, out of the way and can fish over them.

When I'm on the water, I just lay my long rods on the wrap around deck. When I'm traveling to and fro, I break them down, put them in rod socks, and stick them in my under deck rod locker. When I rebuilt my boat I added two rod lockers just for this purpose. Both are 7'6", I can get 14'ers in them. My restriction is Illinois laws, max two rods person, some lakes are 3 per.

can you buy just the 8 slot piece to add more support on the driftmaster tip savers? mine seem to be tangled towards the tips and if I move it further towards the tip i will lose support in the middle and created a lot of bow in the rods.....

Move it back where you get good support. Go to Lowes or Home Depot and get a pack of the Velcro straps for taming computer wires. Split your pole tips like 4 each or 2 each however many you have and wrap one of those straps around those tips about a FT back from tip. No more tangles.

I've been wondering the same thing with mine, I have 14'ers and if I put the 8 slot where it has good support for the middle the tips all bow down and fly everywhere, then if you put it at the tips the middle bows, I'm afraid over time it's gonna cause warping. Been thinking of calling drift master

I do what Erin is doing. When on the road I take the long tips and slip a bungie cord cinch around 4 of them. This keeps them from bouncing and tangling.

Just finished building mine and putting them in. I made them to fit my t-rail so I could remove them during hunting season. Had to put a brace under to take out some of the movement but it worked out well.http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160428/49f39dca468ad0b715c2f5539aa84888.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160428/e4aa567a01576f74048ff03682b0826c.jpg
