Lightbulb Where does everyone store their net?

Curious if anyone has a creative solution for storing your net while driving out to your spot and then easy access for fishing. Obviously the floor is one location but I'm interested to see if anyone fabricated or found a solution?

I have trees mounted on the gunnels of my boat. I had a custom made verticle net holder made for one of them. I put it in there while running and extend it once we setup for fishing.

I turn it on edge and store it between the back casting deck along the gunnel on the Port side of the boat. The handle end is under the passenger side console. It wedges in there, and wind is never an issue.

I have a side console, and the net fits nicely over the top of the port locker and extends to the front deck. Quick and easy for any one to grab the net for a fish.

Out of the way, when not needed.

Take care

When driving to the spot I throw my net in a rod holder on the bow or just on the floor of the bow. Once I'm done with the big motor I put the net over my motor or passenger seat. If I'm fishing with the big net I put it over the motor. See picture. If I'm fishing with normal sized nets I lean them over the passenger seat.

JD,
May I ask what body of water you are on, in the pictures you posted. From the nearby terrain, I might venture that it is out west somewhere?

Take care

p.s.
Nice rig.

I have 5 of those plastic vertical rod tubes in my 17 ' boat One in the front and 4 in the back When fishing I like to have it in the one on the front. Convenient yet out of the way. If I'm trolling by myself I usually lay it between the windshield where I can easily reach it.
