Going bathroom while fishing

63 posts in this topic

Just wondering what everyone does if they have to take a leak. I was out last weekend and had to go but wasnt going to when there were kids running all over the place-I waited till dusk and walked near shore by some trees.

Presuming you're in a house or porty, down the hole.

Hope it's not the hole you are fishing in. sick

we went to red lake in a wheel house, and brought the portable to use as a bathroom. I have the toilet seat that fits on a 5gal bucket. Everyone uses their own bag of course. Nice place to lose some weight, especially after the morning breakfast.

Did the same thing yesterday. You don't want to in front of kids. I think I set a world record on holding it. On a lake at night you can't see a thing though. Just remember where you went when you pack up, wouldn't want to slip!

A couple of Decembers ago at LOW, it was a beautiful sunny day, so my girlfriend and I took a little stroll to stretch out legs. One of the other houses in the area had a few brown logs about 2' outside their door!!

Brown logs-thats nasty! Brought a water bottle with today. I was fishing on Chisago once with some guys, one guy took a leak down his hole,then 5 minutes later scooped water out of the same hole to cook brats on his mister cooker! I went hungry that night!

What in the world made you tell us that. I could have gone three life times and not heard that story. I hope you found new fishing partners.

Cook the brats in beer!! Fish, birds, turtles, and microscopic organisms do not wear diapers. Usually only female astronauts that are too busy to stop at a gas station do. Don't cook with lake water. If you have to, bring it to a good boil first. Giardia is a nasty little critter.

Yea, I bring bottles with me if I'm going to cook. If you are going to cook with that water, then yes, boil it and then boil it some more. I would recomend against it though.

Man oh man if your old enough to type on the pc and of at least the age of 13 to be on this site then that part of life you should have already figgered out , but here comes my answer just because you seem to have to know how and where I clear my system while out on the lake .

Although I try not to expose my privates to anyone most days when you gotta go you gotta go and I'm not going to leak into the wind so cover your womens and kids eyes if a facility is not readily available . I'll try and miss you though if your on the downwind side if it's a stream . wink

As far as number 2, well a bag will do, and it gets hauled off the ice to the nearest dumpster or garbage can .

Geesh what a thread . Someone has too much time on their hands .

my dad told me a similiar story. he was out hunting with a bunch of guys, and after making a long drive one guy was really thisty so he used the home made bailing can to scoop some water out of the lake. what he didnt know that just a few minutes earlier another guy ( fellow hunter ) peed in it.

For #1 buy one of those flexible/extendable gutter attachments and extend it out under the flap of the portable. For #2 I'd go with the plastic grocery bag liner in a 5 gal pail. Don't forget the paper tho.

When my brother took his young son, 3-4years, ice fishing for the first time, he wouldn't go potty on the lake. Neither inside, outside, in a can or pail or anything. He was trained in a bathroom! No amount of bribing or talking worked. He ended up taking him home,lucky there were only 5 miles from lake. We laugh about it now -30 years later but its something you young dads need to consider when getting the little ones out there on the lake.

#1 goes on the ice, #2 into a plastic bag, tie er up and let it freeze, then throw in proper trash recepticle.

    • Switched up my pick at the last second in bucket A and put Wheeler in there. Great ledge fisherman and sounds like this dude puts in more time on the water then any other angler out there.   A. Wheeler B. Evers C. Tharp D. Herren E. Omori   Sounds like the bite has been super tough. Will be interesting to see how it goes. 
    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
