Store fishing poles off the ground. Fishing poles are less likely to rot, mold, or be damaged if you store them off the ground. So hang your fishing rod holders or your vertical fishing rod rack at least a foot above the garage floor.
Can fishing rods be stored bent?
Fiber glass and graphite fishing rods have a memory. If you store a rod for an extended period with the tip bent because you hooked the first eye and reeled down tight after your last outing, chances are, when you release the tension of the line to use the rod months later, it will have a bend to it.
How do you store a fishing pole when not in use?
Secure gravity hooks or vertical bike hooks to the wall of the garage. Use storage bins as the base and store your poles vertically against the wall. Buy a pre-made fishing rod rack and store it inside a garage cabinet to keep it away from humidity, sunlight, and falling objects.
Where should you store fishing rods?
Your home or garage can be ideal for keeping your fishing rods safe, as long as you keep them in a dry environment. Depending on the climate where you live, you may want to store your rods inside your home, so you can keep them at room temperature, whether it’s in an air conditioned or heated environment.
How do I keep my fishing line tight?
Place a pencil or piece of doll rod in the hole on the spool and start putting a line on your reel. As you are putting line on, keep the line as tight as possible, this will help keep the line tight on your spool and also make sure you get as much line as you are supposed to on the reel spool.
