Quick Answer on Ski Racks and Fishing Rod Pole Racks
Overall, it depends on the rack system but yes generally you can store other items in ski rack systems besides skis and snowboards such as fishing rods though it does require you to make sure fishing poles are securely fastened to the rack system.
Here’s Why Ski Racks and Fishing Poles can work
Here is a few reasons this skis/snowboard and fishing poles substitution trick can work.
- Skis like fishing poles are long in dimension and are able to be clamped into a rack system.
- Fishing rods like skis and snowboards are manufactured to be exposed to outdoor elements so if you put them on a rack you are generally ok. (each pole or piece of ski equipment is unique so double check your instruction manuals)
- Just like skiing or snowboard, fishing is an activity where you want to be able to quickly unload and load your fishing gear in unique and outdoor areas.
When in doubt, check the ski rack manufacturer’s installation instructions for specific advice for the rack on your car. Each car rack manufacturer may have additional fishing tips or advice on this topic.
