    Looks good to me. Protected from the elements and no worries of theft when you need to go inside a store, etc

    You could keep them separated to protect the reels by sliding on a piece of pool noodle between the butts. You could also slide a pool noodle on the front one and cut slits for the rod to ride in. They would not move at all then.

    Awesome! I have to try this.

    I been playing around trying to secure the rods with bungee cord or velcro. It can be done, but that just take too much "work/effort". I wanted something super easy and quick, because after fishing a few hours, everyone (including me) is a bit tired, the kid wants to leave asap because he wants some ice cream to cool off, etc. Last thing I want to do at that point is messing around with my rods.

    The pool noodle is a good way to secure and protect your rods if you have the room for them. A schedule 40 PVC pipe will fit the noodles and tight enough to stay in place. Zip-ties would work for attaching the ends up on a hook or just some aluminum wire.

    If any of these work for you, great. If not, the expense should be low.

    tight lines

    Hey, I’ve been talking about buying rod holders for my ‘04 Tahoe.
    Your idea looks a LOT less expensive.
    I’ll bet all of that could be bought at Dollar General for under $20 !!!
    Thanks for the idea!
