Nice. Only 250V? Still paid to fish and get a 40hr paycheck 3 days on and 4days off! Sounds like you got a killer deal!

Yeah I just figured it would take more than 250v. You guys shock the entire farm (pond,lake) at once right?

Oh ok. I heard about shock fishing before but never read too much into it seeing how it's illegal here for regular peeps. Still sounds like you scored a good gig.

our study site is the lower miami river and yeah i have shocked/been shocked before, imagine licking a spark plug X10, not the best feeling in the world, and been dumped over the side of the boat, last week to be honest. just perks of the job but we collect the fish, weigh, measure count then release them all, that includes the biggest catfish and carps all the way down to the paininass minnows, unless you know how many diffrent kinds of fish are out there you cannot appreicate how detailed this can be
