When Nature calls

Recommended Posts

So I'm looking through the standings of the bassmaster central open and see Trait Zaldains name and it got me to wondering . What do the ladies do when they have to p .  Then that got me wondering what do the guys do   . I mean , KVD just cant whip it out with a flotilla following .How do the pros handle this ?

KVD and the other males probably sit behind the console and use a jug if it's absolutely necessary.

The women - same thing but with what's called a 'portable female urinal'. It presses up against...the area...and then they pee like a guy.

So... having both fished with several Elite pros as well as my wife, I can say the guys do what all guys do (overboard). Nothing different there.  The women?  Just like @MN Fisher said...in a container, then dump it overboard.

 

We're all adults.  No big deal.

One thing I'd NEVER do is dump it overboard. It might be a small thing in some people's minds, but I don't pee (or other) where I fish.

What about number 2? That would be my big concern. What if the breakfast burrito wants to say adios? 😂

I have hooked many a smallmouth during relief breaks, I think it draws the predator in close! Haha

That's why those boats have 2 live wells. 😂

There's a reason I carry a 5-quart pail in my canoe. 😎

Re: #2... A friend of mine had what he called an “Eagle Scout Bag.”  Something he did for a boaters survival kit merit badge in high school or something... it’s a biodegradable zip lock style plastic bag filled with about a dozen rocks.  Said you do your deal and send it to the deeps...

 

...glad he didn’t test it out that day - I took his word it worked and changed the subject to something less disturbing like politics and religion 😳

Didn't Gerald Swindle have a story about getting off his boat and using someone's bushes as a makeshift porta-potty?

That's called a livewell full of brown trout....

 

3 or 5 gallon bucket with a pool noodle on the rim for comfort. You can line it with a 13 gallon garbage bag.

I guess KVD  could just ask the spectator boats to not look .

My father said nobody that couldn't stand and urinate over the side wasn't allowed to fish off his boat. It was his way of keeping it a guys only trip. I got my wife a "she wee" as a joke gift. It gets packed in her bag before we go out on a fishing trip and she has become quite good at using it, much to his disappointment.

I've seen guys use the livewells like a port-a-potty, both 1s and 2s, they just run the water after. My first experience with someone dropping a deuce off the boat was traumatizing. I was 16 or 17 in my first year of fishing tournaments in a draw tournament and the guy I got paired with had spent the night before playing poker, drinking beer, and eating greasy food. So at about 8am when he said he was about to "Do the orangutan hang and shoot a roostertail off the back of the boat", and had me run the trolling motor, he wasn't joking. The noises coming from the back of the boat I'd only heard while working on my grandparents farm and had me running the trolling motor non-stop trying to get away from it, but I couldn't. Then he just switched me spots when he was done like nothing happened. I couldn't hardly look at the guy for the rest of the day.

Way back in the late 70's, this question came up when a few women wanted to fish the opens.  There was an issue of Bassmaster with a woman on the cover & their answer to the relieving question was a full length poncho & a coffee can.

 

When I was a marshal last year at Texas Fest, the question came up in the meeting about relieving yourself when spectator boats are around.  Mike Iaconelli's solution was to run full throttle to his next spot spot & then tell his marshal "you have 25 seconds of privacy, have at it".  Gerald Swindle waited until he was in a narrow cove where all the spectator boats were behind him and just went facing forward (from more than 20 yards away, it looked like he was just fishing).

If it were a number two just hold it then?

Sounds like something the boat manufacturers need to address .

It's called the bassroom - pop up tent without a floor

Good Place for a Stick-up ~

And perhaps could benefit with the addition of a "vent".

I usually just go off the side of the boat if the urge arises. Holding urine is one of the worst things you can do for your heart. My Dad had a Dr tell him if he had to stop in a wide spot on the side of the road to do so and if that police ever said a word he would get him out of it. 

 

If anyone is up close and personal nearby and I cannot wait I simply turn my back to them. 

 

As far as the other.. if it’s just me I go to shore, hit up a porta john, bath house, or the woods with bio degratable wipes. Thank goodness “it” has never hit me during a tournament yet. I think it’s just because we’re mentally in tune to that we don’t think about it. 

 

I have gotten quite embarrassed on a couple of occasions though. I took a leak once beside my truck and trailer one evening. There were several cars parked nearby but all had been parked there all day so I assumed the coast was clear. Soon as I pulled around towards the ramp a car started up and drove by. A woman and her teenage daughter drove by. I was mortified. There was no way I didn’t give them a show by mistake. 

 

Another time I was the only person at the ramp. No cars anywhere in site and the gravel road was silent. I decided to take a quick leak when this girl around 20 came walking by on her horse. She had her phone out and was in plain view before I saw her there. She glanced right as I tried to turn the other way. She ignored me and I ignored her. 

 

From that point on I have been very careful about when and where I go around my vehicle and such in public. 

 

 

 

Off topic but funny story. One local lake has a single out house with no doors near the ramp. One for men and one for women. My buddy had to go once before launching his boat by himself one summer day around 5am. A turkey hen came marching in there while he was sitting in the pitch dark. Scared the living you know what out of him until he realized what it was.
