    I have a device that sends SOS in Morse code, with a strobe light. It can be seen a long ways without blinding the pilot.

    When I was working we had urine bags that we used out in the field. They have a substance in the bag that makes the urine gel then you can legally throw the bag into the trash. They also make one for (#2) that also can go into the trash.
    We're not home right now so will look later for an address for the bags. I think that they are made in the North County.
    Leoffensive might know about the product.

    I know of them but have not used them before. In my years of working on the highway I wish trucks would use them. Can't tell you how many times I've ran over hidden trucker bombs only to have the smell come through my air conditioning vents. Haha it sucks

    gatorade bottle as well. For #2 - for starters, I avoid eating dinner items the night before, or breakfast stuff day of that has the reputation to contribute to it. If the event were needed, I suspect I'd be using the scupper area for seating. For post, I guess I'll start packing a rag or something.

    I spoke to Werfless today and besides a gaff to control the big feesh, he suggested a knife and a club to quickly dispatch big monster...

    I think everyone missed the most important thing to bring on your yak while fishing. FRESH WATER!! I bring at least 2 liters. And a sun hat is also crucial. You do not wanna be out and get dehydrated.

    I carry 1 bottle of water (just in case) I have to clean off my Lowrance 7TI screen, 6 cans of beer, when I finished with the first one I cut open the lid and it becomes the container for when I have to pee. One of the most important things I carry is a double edge, serrated with line cutter notch approx. 4 1/2" blade knife. I carry it on my PFD with it's quick pull out sheath. I started carrying it and on my PFD because several years ago I rolled in the surf after a rouge 5' wave crashed on top of me while landing at LJ and I got a little tangled in my fishing rod lashes and fishing line from one of my rods, that still had a Salas 6 iron attached. It went trough the sole of my water shoe. The kayak was upside down in 3 1/2' of water and as I tried to get it back over, I could feel the hook trying to go into my foot. The time it took to reach for my other knife I had on the opposite side of the kayak cost me my Lowrance elite 4 fish finder I had at the time (small amount of water must have gotten in the sealed memory card slot). That lesson taught me it is smart to have the knife within reach at all times.

    That sounds so risky. All I can think of are sharp edges.

    A guy at my church is an EMT and he said he recently responded to a guy who tried doing that with a beer can and it got stuck. Sounds risky to me.

    Same one that is in the picture posted above June 6th. I use the edge of the blade to roll the edges of opening on the top of the can , the opening is the size of the entire lid and there are no sharp edges after that.
