I've got an opportunity to go on the shocking boat on a lake in VA sometime soon. Anybody ever been? Seems like it would be interesting.

I've watched several operations from the shore. It looks like it would be fun to help net all the fish as they are shocked up!

Dot it and post a report!

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

Yep, I've done it both from a boat and by wading - Great eye opener. Many places hold a hell of a lot more fish then you realize. (Even then the "shocker" brings less then 50% to the top.

Not a whole lot of danger of getting electrocuted - but if you fall in and get the inside of your waders wet it is a good time to get out of the water.   Been there, done that ;D

Yup. Figured it would be. It's fun until it's your job. You should go.

John Copeland?!?!?!?   Lordy, I was a co-op undergrad student, and boarded with John, in a house close to the corner of Monument and Boulevard in Richmond.  Tell him he still owes me for that bag of weed.

You should go shocking fishes with John.
