Electro-Shock Fishing Tip: Don't Touch The End Of The Pole That Shocks Stuff

By Joe Cermele

You know how the number one rule in conventional fishing is know what's behind you before making a cast? In electro-shock fishing, the number rule is never grab the hot end of the shoddy lightning rod you built out of a ski pole, a hair dryer, and the power cord from your brother's Sega Genesis. It seems the gentleman in this video was so pumped to shock some more eels, or whatever is swimming in that mud, he forgot ever-so-crucial rule numero uno, though it appears he'll live to zap another day. But if he had been able to afford the new Dave Wolak Electro-Mangler 3000 like the pros use, he would have been deep fried.

That looks awesome. I'm going to make one out of the plans Joe gave in the first paragraph. If it doesn't work on fish I have friends who will do it simply because I say "I dare you"

And that is why you should never want to hear; “Hold my beer and watch this"
