shocking up fish

a vere efective method.a car alternator with human power (some portable method of spinning it a bicycle maby) and up come the fish. kind of like a tazer the fish are stunned and will swim away shortly after the currrent has been removed. this method is used by wildlife managemnt to survey and cull(remove)fish. however it is HIGHLY ILLEGAL. these methods are also used to cull or deter by electrifyd barriers the dreaded asian carp,with little success sadly:(

When I lived in IDYHO they would turn the irrigation canals off in the fall.

That would leave flooded "potholes" some as big as a swimming pool filled with fish (from the Snake River).

Ya pour in a little chlorine bleach and the buggers jes float right up to the top.

They said it didn't affect the taste at all so long as you harvested them right away.

The Chlorine will evaporate out over time, leaving no trace. I am sure it would work where water levels rise and fall.

Illegal? Dunno.

I'd feel a lot safer throwing a lit M80 into the water than I would a live wire.

Just one word of advise about noodling in a creek, most snappers, turtles face up stream to grab what floats or swims by. Most of the time not always. :D
