    Default Fishing table design

    I want to build a fishing table to hold the items needed while fishing like lures, bait, tools such as pliers hook extractor etc, drink holder, etc. I'm hoping some folks here can post a photo of what they use to give me some ideas of what to design into mine. Any pictures or design ideas will be apperciated.

    I have looked on-line for commercially available tables but, so far, have not found anything like what I'm looking for. Any ideas for a commercial source would be appreciated also.

    I never had anything like that on a pontoon, but it sounds like a good idea, Are you thinking hinged and attached to the rail, so it swings down when not in use, or full blown part of the furniture, with tackle storage, everything in one place?

    On the old Tracker I did have dry storage in the corners in the bow, and the tops of the boxes became catch alls, and work areas. They were probably under 2 square feet, I think you'd need a little more.

    I like the idea of a work area with a space below to store a bunch of Plano boxes.

    Is it portable? Maybe drops in a seat base, so you can take it off the boat? Too much coffee?

    Our boat has a pair of fishing seats forward of the front railing. I am thinking of a table which will be mounted on a removable table stand and the stand will be mounted as close to the center of the boat as the trolling motor will allow between the forward fishing seats. Im thinking more of a table to hold the items needed while fishing as apposed to a work table.

    Here's a picture of our boat to give you an idea of the arrangement.
