How Do You Make an Ice Fishing Pole Holder?

Making your own ice fishing pole holder is a great way to get the most out of your ice fishing experience. It’s a simple and cost-effective way to keep your poles organized and secure while you’re out on the ice.

Plus, it’s a great way to show off your DIY skills! Here’s how you can make your own ice fishing pole holder in a few easy steps:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You will need some PVC pipes, PVC connectors, a saw, drill, screws and glue. Depending on how many poles you want to store and how tall they are, decide how much material you need. Make sure that the PVC is strong enough to hold up against the weight of the poles.

Step 2: Measure and Cut

Measure the length of pipe needed for each part of the holder. Cut the pipes with a saw so that all pieces fit together snugly. If necessary, use sandpaper or a file to smooth down any rough edges.

Step 3: Assemble

Assemble all the parts together with glue or screws. Make sure that all pieces fit securely together so that they won’t come apart easily. Then use drill holes in each pipe and attach them together with screws.

Step 4: Attach to Ice

Once all parts are secure, use screws and drill holes in the bottom of each pipe in order to attach it securely to the ice. This is important for safety reasons; if you don’t secure it properly it could easily come apart when you’re out on the lake.


Making an ice fishing pole holder is an easy way to keep your poles organized and safe while out on the lake. By gathering materials such as PVC pipes and connectors, measuring, cutting, assembling and then attaching it securely to the ice, you can easily make your own holder for your next trip!
