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.
