Not sure where to post this, so if the mods need to move this, please do. Having just completed the purchase of my third very nice rod n reel set up, I was wondering if any fellow float tubers had any suggestions or home-made remedies for carrying rods on your float tube. I absolutely hate the idea of one of my setups sinking 20 or more feet to the bottom of a lake, but I enjoy taking 2-3 rods with me so I can quickly and easily change up tactics as the day progresses. I own a fish cat 4, and while I saw an accessory for it on Cabelas site, I didn't like how it sat on the water. I am thinking or rigging something on the side of my tube. setting them behind me or across my lap on the from has worked so far, but there have been a few close calls saved by a quick reflex! Any input would be greatly appreciated!

First i'm going to watch couple McGayver episodes
LOL! Ya, I need to brush up on my Macgyver skills too! Thanks, that youtube video helped. Think I will try the pvc type one. Might look into turning those holders on a slight angle to keep those rods a little more out of the way! I swear I saw that cabelas one for around 30-40 bucks last year. now it sells for 90!!! Will probably attempt both versions. The goal is going to be balancing it whiletrying to keep the rods a little more towards the back of the tube, yet still easily accessible. After this, will probably work on some sort of floating livewell. Theres also a sweet looking one made by some guys in Ohio on youtube. Also seen a small tube and mount for a little trolling motor. Thats also on the list! It would help for windy days, but its more for my dad so he can be out there all day with us.
