    Yes I was thinking of using golf club sleeves for the rod tips. I was just wondering how everyone else were transporting their rods since this boat is new to me. My previous boat had rod locker storage.

    Thanks again.

    Same here, a crew of four there's usually 12-16 rods on a Tuna trip. Mine are in a rod socks and reels in a neoprene covers. I split the rods up half each side boat leaning back up against the stern rail. I use those twisty's ? not sure of the right name to hold the rods in place, I buy them from HD. They are handy for all kinds of stuff on the boat,,,gregg

    I have the same set of rubber holders on my boat. I drilled a hole through the rail/rubber area of each clamp. Then I bought some cheap clamps from Harbor Freight tools that when opened they were big enough to clamp around the rubber, each rubber has it's own keeper pin through the aluminum rail/rubber to hold it in place. I also have a engine cover for my V-6 Vortec engine and it has a set of tubes attached to it......Jetspray

    Re: Rod Storage while trailering, where?

    If I am taking a pile of rods, I put them in stik jackets, then lean them across the passenger seat in the cockpit of my North River with the arm rest at a slight upward angle. Butts on the ground, tips in the air. Been doing it for years without an issue.

    Thats the same way we do it when we fish out of our 16 foot tracker. Its a open tiller so there isn’t much for storage.

    Rod Storage while trailering, where?

    For those boats that do not have rod storage lockers, where do you lay your rods in your boat while trailering? Currently I'm laying them along the gunnel with the rod resting on the rear of the boat so they stick up a few feet. Then I use a bungee and wrap all the rods and secure it the inside of the boat so they don't slide around.

    Is there a better way? Pics would be great.

    There are times I have 8 - 12 rods depending on who comes fishing with me and I was curious if I was missing something better.

    Thanks....
