The Bodacious Catfish Shocker is probably the best on the market
today. It’s small
size and voltage requirements out-weigh anything
else you can get out
there that you can find.
All it takes is a 12V car battery and about 100
feet of stranded and
insulated copper wire.(preferably light cord for a lamp) Cut off about 4 foot of insulation off of the wire &
tie about 3 feet of dog chain to the
end of the stripped copper wire. (The chain will weave itself around
sticks and rocks on the bottom of the river.) The temperature of the
water must be at least 70 degrees F. and it has to be used in running water.
In other words you must use it in a river.
I have been told that
running it through a creek bottom in a lake
where the dam
is open will work just as well but I never tried it like that.
Anyway, you hook up the
other end of the long wire to the green
alligator clip. The red
alligator clip hooks to the positive side of the
battery and the black
alligator clip hooks to the negative side of the battery.
You also need to run
a jumper wire (not supplied by me to the negative
side of the battery to
the aluminum boat.
If you are not using
an aluminum boat then you need to run a jumper
wire from the negative
side of the battery to the water with about 4
foot of insulation stripped
off wire in the water. That completes the
current between the dog
