I thought it would be neat to see pics of other member's bank fishing gear in action. Stuff like rod holders, camp chairs, coolers, etc. Whatever you have on the bank for a day (or night) or catting.
Basically a photo of you in action (or in-action)! Since my boys and I are putting together our bank fishing gear, I'd like a few ideas from others to make our outing comfortable and relaxing. Many thanks in advance.
mark thats the best fishing rig ive ever seen for pulling to the water, fishing off of and transporting gear. if i could get my truck down to the bank id definitely go with one of those. thats just awesome
Not much too my setup...couple pieces of pipe off of an old shopvac, buckets, lawnchairs and a cooler.
This winter, added rod holders(setters) for the setters and painted a lantern. Think I'll add a muck cart. If it will work?
Everything I use I haul out to the banks with my modified golf caddy.
It carries 4 combos, table, folding chair,catch bucket, bait bucket,rod holders, net and a few other small items. All my tackle goes into a backpack which is caarried as such.
The rods are PVC tubes with aluminum angle stakes. The net is held at ready using one of those coil style rod holders you get at walmart. I also use one of those near my little bait table (in the one pic its bairly visible behind the cart and backpack) as a holder for the rod I am baiting, unhooking a fish or re-tying a rig. It keeps it out of the dirt. The table is a modified metal frame tv table with a larger table surface.
Great thread, very interesting. I'd really like to get some of those european style rod holders that keep your rods tips close to the water. I fish mostly under bridges or on jetties and rebar and pvc rod launchers dont really work. Hope more pics get posted.
Mines pretty simple. 5gal bucket, 2 pvc pipes drilled into it with rubber washers to keep the bucket from leaking. Fill the bucket with water which gives you 30-40#s of weight. Toss the line out, pop the rods in and set tge "hook, set, pro" and sit back and wait. The hook set pro is really a nice gadget if you aren't always around your rods. It won't pick up on the super tiny bites, but since I use circle hooks, once a fish takes it, the rest is history.
