Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I'm looking to re design my tackle garage mostly all bass fishing gear also have some deer hunting gear as well. Can you guys share some pics of how each of you have set up you fishing/ hunting man caves or just fishing. I know all of you have a designated area where you keep all your gear organized and an area to work on reels and just mess with fishing gear before tournaments weither it be in your garages, work shops, room in the house or basement. Any help would be great I just like to get some good idea on how everyone has there spots set up

Peg boards and the plano shelves are really good investments. Personally I have used big shelve hangers from menards that cost about 12 and they have enough room to hold 12+ rods. I use this in my garage to keep them off of the ground. At my apartment I have 2 berkley rod racks mounted to my bedroom wall.

I have a storage room in the garage. The door opens into the middle of the room.

Onrthe wall to the left I have rod holders. On the adjacent wall is pegboard from the

waist up and shelving below. The left of the back wall has a display case on top with

more shelving below. The rest of the room is boxed in with steel shelving for hunting

and camping gear plus two sections for automotive products and garden chemicals.

 

This room also serves as a storm shelter, so I keep survival supplies here, too.

This started out just being a general purpose workbench on the back wall of the garage with tools covering the pegboard.  This is the bench where I tinker with tackle and put my rod box when it's not in the car.  As time has gone by, in the middle of the night when no one is looking, the bait monkey keeps finding other places for my tools and makes more room for tackle... :lol:  The three drawers under the bench on the left side are all fishing gear. More and more cardboard boxes with TW orders and such keep getting stacked under the bench since this photo was taken.

To the left of the workbench cabinets is this "rod cove":

On the side wall to the left of the rod cove is this roll-around rack:

The boat and all related gear are stored on the right wall:

Finally, inside the house in my den/office/bunker is the "Princess Rack"... :lol:

What do other people here have? 

 

I'd like to get a work bench and a rod holder/storage rack for the basement but not sure what accessories to put with it.

What do you mean - other accessories?  Put in anything you can think of that you might need.  I've got a digital scale - left over from a past life of herbal recreational pursuits.  I use it every so often because I want to know how much something weighs.   Also if you spill a large box of weights, it makes sorting them somewhat easier.  I've got a fly tying vise - I don't tie flies or stuff like that but it works if I need a 3rd hand to adjust a spinnerbait skirt or replace the rubber band with wire or something like that.  I have a Dremel Moto tool with all the necessary cutting and polishing, sanding and etching bits.  That is a handy tool that I use from time to time.  It is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.  I've got a medium sized air compressor - that is handy, as it makes checking the tires on the tow vehicle and boat trailer simpler.

 

A reel spooling kit is handy - it is really handy to have a few of them, one set up to handle service spools, one for reel fill spools and another for medium sized 800 to 1000 yard spools.  A beer fridge might be nice, but I make do with a cooler.

A bottle opener mounted to some surface saves time looking for a church key or a pair of pliers.  ( I very seldom buy canned beer or twist off bottles)   I've got a nice boom box that handles CDs and cassette tapes and AM & FM radio so I can have tunes or ball game as necessary.  4 large plastic ammo cans currently hold the CD collection.  I'll get another one as soon as I go on another CD buying binge.

 

I have shelves on nearly every wall plus several free standing shelving units, because I am a great fan of horizontal storage, where I can see where I put stuff.

 

I have a 30' by 50' fishing shed and I've found that it isn't hard to fill it up.  Now, storage that is organized and well thought out - that is a challenge and one that I haven't mastered yet at all.  I frequently make plans to have everything orderly and tidy in my fishing shed, but more often than not I've got stuff strewn all around it in no particular order.

 

So, does this answer your question?  Basically just fill whatever space you got up with stuff that you think you might need from time to time.  Oh yeah, don't forget a few decent, comfortable chairs.  Sometimes, in you space you will just want to sit and chill.  A decent chair helps out with that goal.
