Need a place to store my fishing poles

So I got a 92 YJ and I'm trying to get some ideas to make a nifty fishing rod holder (freshwater and saltwater).

I've seen the PVC mounts on the front but I'm just wondering if there's been any better inventions?

You'll want to stay away from pvc. It will crack pretty easily. Aluminum racks that go into the hitch work best. If your using surf rods keep in mind the clearance, both high and low. I've seen a few casualties from both sides.

I have some fabricated from steel. I Have a pocket welded on the front bumper for the front holder, and a holder that bolts to the inside fenderwell. Obviously I can only use the back one when I have the top off, but in the summer time, or warm weather they work great. PM me and I can send you a picture of what they look like.
