Default Fishing rod storage

I just recently bought a place on the Chesapeake Bay. In doing so, I relocated all of my fishing equipment from three locations to a storage area on that property. What I came to realize is that I have about a million fishing rods. I have a few thoughts on how I may store them but would like some suggestions. Does anyone have a good, economical method to store fishing rods of all types. In reality, I probably have about 25-30.

I have a rod steward. Works well. Holds inshore and offshore rods with ease. I have 18 in mine but it will hold 25

Capt, 25-30 is really not so much. You didn't say if you want overhead storage, wall-mount storage, or a portable (as in rolls around on wheels) storage.

Here's some pics of various methods. Must be something here that would work for ya.

Thanks. These pics gave me some great ideas. "25-30 is really not so much." - not sure that line will work with my wife on my next trip to Cabela's........ But hey, it's all relative and I'm sure it will be 35-40 sometime next year.... Thanks again for the pics!!

I built my hanging off the ceiling. I have limited space so this works for me. I have the same set up on the opposite side. I have maybe 50 rod and reels combos.

This is exactly what I was looking for.... I was just looking for an inexpensive solution to get them out of the way. Quick, easy, and effective.....I like it. Thanks for posting.

This is my wall rack (the reels not being used are kept in a cabinet). The rod racks are mounted on 2X6's to hold the tackle farther from the wall. I have also done the PVC racks hanging from the ceiling depending on height of garage.

Mine is similar to Catfever's I had some PVC laying around 1" I think and a drawer full of fittings. I grabbed a couple of dowels from Lowes to strengthen the PVC on the inside and some pipe insulation to put around the PVC. A few elbows connect to a flat end cap that I screwed to a flat piece of wood to use as a mounting flange and then screwed that to the trusses in the ceiling. Probably about 10 bucks and I made 2 racks with it. This one has all of my heavier stuff and the one in the back has all of the inshore/freshwater rods. This picture is not fully loaded but I can get about 10 rods on each and I built it to clear the garage door but set it back far enough so that I can still grab the rods with the door open when loading the boat. I'm 6'3" so reaching up to an 8'6" ceiling is not an issue for me, something you may need to consider.

THe PVC racks that come up in Google images are almost all mine. I sell them for about what it would cost you to build them yourself.
They are also great for rinsing your gear after a day in the salt.

I like it, now I will have to sturdy mine up a bit. My pvc is starting to sag in the middle. Thanks for the post and the upgrade.

Catfever the key is to cut the dowels a bit longer than the PVC crossmember, that way the dowels reach into the PVC elbow where you essentially have a double layer of PVC.
