Greetings to everyone
I got tired of having my fishing line being stored in a bag and it rolling around in the boat. I was looking at Big D Basser's Skeeter at "Grand Bayou Shoot Out" and he had a spooling station rigged in his rod box. He told me that it came from Skeeter like that. I got to thinking it couldn't be that hard to make one so I did.
Equipment needed: Drill and 5/32 drill bit; Paper towel dispenser (metal or pastic); 1/4" dia.rod (Wooden or Metal); Stainless steel screws with washers.
The first thing is find a place to mount this where it's not in the way of things. I put mine in my driver's side rod box. Mark your holes and drill the holes.
I use the 1/4 lb spools of line and was able to get (3) spools rigged up on this.
I got it all together and gave the spools a try to make sure they would rotate freely before I mounted it to the rod locker lid.
The finished product mounted and ready to go.
It took me about 30 minutes to do this project. I actually had it installed with Industrial Velcro but due to the heat I decided to mount it with screws. Make sure that the length of your screws don't come through the top of the rod box. In my rod boxes I have a mounting bracket built in which allows for accessories to be installed.
