If I'm Going To Help Her, I Gotta Ask The Ladies.

Recommended Posts

Being an old guy I make frequent use of my coffee can. My wife is another story. We fish woods lakes that don't have facilities, that however doesn't mean there are no people. In the bass boat it isn't so bad, but we use a 12 foot Jon boat for the woods lakes. More then once she had to dive in the brush (with the ticks and skeets), especially if there was someone else using the lake while we were there.

If I have to be honest, my wife is the size of an old fashion Grandma. The grand kids have just so much time before passing out when she hugs them. I only bring this up so you know a pop can ain't gonna do it.

Please know I am serious about this. It just can't be good to tie yourself up all day, especially when your over 65.

One of these containers + this = problem solved!

When you got to go you got to go, some ladies go over the side of the boat but I use the system Glenn posted.

I'm no better, but what a spectacular sight that would be! I (and she) like Glens idea. Thanks!

The device was interesting and something to think about. I managed to find an antique chamber pot, that is very small and can easily fit in a dry storage box in the boat. With it on the floor and a rain jacket covering you, no one can see.

My sig other found these in the sunday paper.  They come from England where a lot of people hike - and there are not a lot of trees to hide someone crouched with her pants down!

It is one thing to be fishing with a man you know intimately.  It is completely another thing to be in a tournament boat for 8+ hours,  fishing with a man you just met for the first time 4 hours ago.  To note - there is not one man I have ever fished with (with me as a coangler or boater) that has not offered to take me to a facility or shoreline if I needed.  BUT - I long ago figured out I needed every bit of time on the water that there was in a tournament day.  I no more wanted to  waste a trip to some bathroom on a shoreline 15 minutes from where we were fishing than anyone else did.  SO I looked for alternatives.

I ordered a whole bunch of P-mates.  As with some of the other products listed here -(that all work, I might add) - they may take a few practice runs prior to getting out on the water and using them when absolutely necessary!!

I package them in a small ziploc bag, with a folded paper towel for cleanliness afterwards, which  is not necessary if one wears some sort of thin pad/pantiliner.  These are not pretty details to read - BUT I have found I would rather share the gritty truth and allow more women to enjoy their  time on the water as easily as any man.  After all - women can be EQUALLY as competitive in the fishing venues as men.  Those darn fish have NO idea who is on the other end of that fishing line - until they get ti the surface!!!

         After the items have been used, they can be neatly tucked and zipped back into the ziploc baggie - and replaced in ones back pocket - headed to the trash at some later point in the day.  No need for special accomodations of any sort..  I generally have a long=tailed fishing shirt on anyway - but it certainly is not a necessity.  I kneel down next to the motor, and use the P=mate (or the 'Shewee' would work simarly well. Since I have been a boater, I have also used this from the front of the boat, kneeling next to the trolling motor - if there is no one on the water/shore in front of the boat.   I ask the coangler in the back for a few moments of privacy (just keeping his back towards me- so they are not embarrassed  :Idontknow:  )  and they are always surprised  how fast it is - "you're done already???"  It is just as uncomfortable for most men - broaching the subject about who/when/how are we going to relieve ourselves -  as it can be for some women.  I always bring the 'uncomfortable' topic up first to break the ice - and I just reassure them that I fish with men every day - and if they find they need their privacy - just to let me know and I will be sure to 'avert my eyes' for the time needed!!  :laugh5: 

 

If you are fishing with your spouse of sig other, it takes a lot of the embarrassment out of the whole situation.  BUT there is still no need to return to the ramp and lose fishing time - tournament or not!!

check  out the P-mate !!!

Advantages:

--> fold flat

--> fit in back pocket/VERY discreet

--> disposable

--> no special storage needs

--> avoids  stress of full bladder - ESP important when bouncing around on a rough lake at 60-70 mph in a tournament boat!!

 

Just thought I'd share one of the things that has made my time on the water less stressful and a whole lot more enjoyable!!
