Hello everyody!!!
I've been using my fishing invention for fishing. It works very great. I used it in many lakes. I always make sure no one is around when I put it in and out of the water. Nobody has seen my invention but my wife and my dog and the fish those poor suckers.
But now one guy says I don't bother trhying to patent it because I disclosed it.
But I know nowbody saw it. I know!
I kept it hid getting out of my truck and getting my stuff into the boat. My wife didn't tell nobody and my dog can't talk. But he can sure hunt. Nothing like my invention is in stores cause I know all aobut fishing equpment.

 
Perhaps there was an implied confidentiality agreement between you and your wife.
 
Without trying to figure out the technically correct answer, I think your use, even if it was "barring" public use, is not likely to present a barrier to patentability here.  If there's no evidence something happened, perhaps it just didn't happen.
