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.

So what length of probes would I need to drop in the water for good contact?    Roughly how far apart should they be?  The farther the better or????

No sure I should admit to anything but I did find some wires hooked to the poles and one end of those wires got wet.  :smilewink:

 

I didn't see any aquatic life forms so wonder about what kind of probes or how to space the probes.

Whatever you do, keep pencils away! It'll turn a brand new one into a golf score pencil in seconds!

The funny part is people really do use DC voltage for fishing all the time, you stick the probes in good dirt with grass cover (damp is best) and you'll never dig worms again

There are a few videos on you tube. One guy (overseas somewhere, where it must be legal) stuck the ground behind the boat and the hot wire was wrapped around a dip net, the other was a company that does a "lake consulting" kind of thing, used an aluminum boat for the ground and had a 5 foot boom off the front of the boat and had 6 or 8 probes for the hot hanging off it. For catfish, they drag a chain on the bottom for the ground and sink the hot probe to 4 feet off the bottom.... not that I have ever done it, that's just what I heard
