Is this what people use to ....  uh..... check inventory in a pond? :smilewink:

Found it at a flea market Saturday and thought it was cool.  I know it works cause once I got it oiled up and turning, it bit me.

It works good for "digging" fishing worms too. If the ground is wet, you can put the probes in the ground about 6-8 feet apart and start cranking. The worms come to the top.

Thanx 195!

 

Back in the '70s my cousin did a lot of fishing with the guts from an old crank telephone.  I can't recall what it looked like - mostly because he had it disguised inside a box marked "bait". 

I don't think he fooled anyone but he tried. 

 

What voltage these things do?   AC or DC?

A/C, can get 90 - 100 volts with a good spin of the crank. I used to have one in my youth. We would take turns seeing how long you could hold the wires and start with a slow crank. needless to say that game didn't last long.

We used to fish with cherry bombs as kids no bait required just a net.

Yep, that is a 3 bar. Once upon a time way back when I had a 7 bar, that thing would fry your gizzard if you happen to grab both leads at the same time while someone was cranking.

We used those too. We also used green black walnuts in a potato bag after beating them up. Would drive the fish right up on the bank.

In Va. you don't want the Game Warden to find you with that thing. They have a problem believing you are checking inventory.

If you go to Sportsmans guide they might have so old military phone sets with the comm wire. ou could set up a phone system with that thing.

Believe it or not, we still use several of those things in remote underground locations.

I thought I knew every way to put fish on a stringer without actually using a rod and reel. Educate me on the black walnut trick.

It's an old Indian trick.
If you are on a creek find a gravel bar below a larger pool of water, dam it up as much as you can with rocks to slow the flow. Take your green walnuts in a burlap bag and beat the crap out of them with a rock. Makes the outside green shell all gooey which releases a chemical called rottinone(sp?) Throw the bag in the water above the new dam, in the middle of the pool if you can. Then sit and wait, the chemical drives all the oxygen from the water and some of the fish will actually jump on the bank to try and breathe.
Have net ready and stringer, because when it starts to work, it starts getting fun fast.
