DIY Fishing Rod Rack

... organize your rods, auger and fishing poles with this home made DIY fishing rod rack!

After coming back from fishing one morning I was annoyed when trying to find room in the corner of my garage for my rods, or trying to make room to cram them on a shelf. I happened to have some 2×4’s, a saw, drill and screws so rather than going out to spend money at a store to fix my problem, I used what I had and in not very long I had exactly what I needed for all my fishing rods and ice auger! This simple fishing rod rack & organizer can be made however wide or short needed to fit all your fishing rods and ice auger too. Check it out …


  • 3 2×4’s (length equal to how wide you would like to built the unit)
  • Saw
  • Drill (with 1 1/2″ wood bit & screw driver attachments)
  • 3″ Wood Screws
  • Wood Stain / Varnish
  • PPE (Safety Glasses, Work Gloves, Hearing Protection, Etc.)

Instructions (for a 30″ wide unit):

1) Cut 3 2x4s at 30 inches …….
