There is a couple of things you can do besides adding an organizer in your rod locker. First carpet the lockers inside surfaces with boat grade carpet, if it's not already. Layer your rods by placing towells between the rods and reels. Wind the line around the rod guides by hooking the lure hook on a loop near the handle or first rod guide, use a lure wrap around the rod and lure, then tighten the line snug, pull the line away from the rod at the center about six inches and spin the rod 2 or 3 times to wrap the line around it. The line wrap prevents other rods tangling together, the lure wrap keeps the hooks out of harms way and the towells cushion and protect the rods. Simple, doesn't cost much and has worked great for me for decades. I do not like tubes or anything that you feed the rod into tip first or that holds the rods with cushioned clips. The towells are handy to wipe the boat down etc, you should always have them in the boat.
