    Drop Net Holder for Pier Cart Ideas?

    Anyone care to share pictures or ideas for a DIY hook or attachment to hang the pier net and rope on? I was thinking of constructing my own from PVC and sticking it in a my cart rod holder(s). Any better ideas?

    Mine slips behind the cooler during transport, then on the cart handle when I need it .... to put it in a rod holder , uses up one holder plus blocks others, especially on my 310 cart that has 4 holders on the front and back

    Most likely doesn't help you

    My cart has a 1" square aluminum hole on the center-back (like the one the handle goes in on the front). I cut a slot in a 1x2 so it fits in that hole and put a PVC Tee on top of it (PVC cut off to allow my net rim to rest). Works well for the beach, but I'm kind of a "wide load" trucking down the pier. I can hang my gaff in the PVC Tee, also.

    If you do this you'll do well to put a screw in (across) the slot in the 1x2 to act as a stop to keep the aluminum from splitting the wood.
    People are shocked to see sharks in the water around here.

    If you see natural water taste it. If it's salty it has sharks in it. If it's fresh it has alligators in it. If it's brackish it has both.

    BTW, the water around here contains Vibrio vulnificus, aka "flesh eating bacteria," you might oughtn't taste it.

    Ironman172,
    Can you show me a picture of your American flag?

    What a great idea.

    I hang the net on the biggest rod-eye I have, place the rod in a rear holder, and make sure the net rests on top of the cart/supplies. You can attach so it won't fall off with a simple tie-wrap. Just make sure a heavy net isn't hanging-free from the eye, and you won't need to take up a rod holder on the cart. Or, just use an old broken rod-bottom for the same purpose.

    A tall flat stick with a notch on top (PVC would work too) stuck in a rod holder is handy because it can be turned to keep the rod flush to the side of cart on those crowded days.

    I used an old fence board and screwed it onto the rear aluminum 1" tube. Then put a coat hook on it to hold the net. Merely slide "T" back in rear slot. Fence board rests on rear rail. Works well for me.
