Take a large marine or car battery FULLY Charged and a set of jumper cables (as long as possible.) Pull apart the jumper cables almost all the way leaving about 4-5 inches that are still stuck together. Now on the 2 ends that are pulled all the way apart you will need to cut off the clamps and strip back about 2-3 inches of the wire, leaving bare copper. Carefully put each end in the water as far apart as possible if you have enough charge and will stun the fish for 20-30 seconds. The best shocker I have EVER used is one made by a guy in Louisiana... http://www.catfishstunner.com/index.html

    here in philippines we used to make a home made electrofishing device, you can just simply refer to the design of induction coil by Ruhmkorff,you need just a little modification on the output to have dc output,

Yes it is illegal, I do not do it but I know people that have ponds that want to move fish into another pond of theirs...in this case I think it should be ok to do because the DNR does this same thing to count fish, so why is it illegal for you to do it to move and count fish that are in your own pond?

I do not think 12 volts is enough.
BTW:using such devices to catch fish is very illegal.

To say it is illegal is to show you are sadly misinformed. It is illegal for certain uses and in certain areas. There are very many legitimate and LEGAL uses for a fish shocker. please only comment with accurate information.

My battery charger is blinking geen not red when I’m trying to charge it. What does that mean?


Hi Linda.
not sure if this will help you out,i found this on the internet.
Battery Charger Troubleshooter
When there is a battery failure, there is a possibility it was caused by a bad battery charger. When the charger is only plugged into the wall, it should show a green light. If there is no light showing, confirm that the outlet is good. If the outlet is good, it is very possible that the issue is with the battery charger, not the battery.
If the charger is plugged into the battery only, it should show a green light. (If you have purchased a new charger within the last year, you will not get a green light if the charger is only plugged into the battery. You will get a green light however if the wall charger is just plugged into the wall and not plugged into the wiring harness) If it does not show a green light, it is likely that the charger is not making contact with the battery. The most likely reason for this is a faulty fuse on the wiring harness. This fuse is a 2-amp automotive fuse, and it should be replaced with a 2 or 3-amp fuse available anywhere that sells auto parts. The fuse can blow out if there is a short in the charging system, or if the plug-in end of the wiring harness comes in contact with a battery terminal.
When the charger is plugged into both an electrical outlet and the battery, there should be a red light showing on the charger. A red light showing indicates that the charger is in contact with the battery and is actively charging the battery. Once the battery has reached a voltage level that is considered "fully charged" the red light changes to green. If after 24 hours the light has not changed to green there is no cause for alarm! Remember that when the light is red, the battery is being charged, and you will be able to use your system. After 24 hours or so, your battery is as charged as it is going to get, and if the light is still showing red you should disconnect the charger and go fishing. Replacement chargers and parts can be purchased directly from MarCum's website.
If you are really concerned about your battery, consider getting a basic volt meter to check the voltage of your battery. They can be bought for less than 20 dollars and will show you exactly what the voltage level of your battery is. If after 24 hours of charging your battery should have at least 12 volts (ideally 13-14 volts) and as long as it is over 12 volts it will work. If it is not at or above 12 volts you should consider replacing the battery. If your unit starts to malfunction while you are fishing, it would not come as a surprise that the voltage has dropped down to 11 volts or lower.
If the charger is plugged into the wall and battery, and you get a blinking light on the charger, it is very likely that the battery is faulty and should be replaced.
Batteries are an expendable item, and must be replaced periodically. Any store that sells ice fishing electronics will stock suitable batteries. You can also buy them at a specialty battery store, or by ordering one from our website.The batteries that you should use are the "Sealed Lead Acid" variety, they are 12 volts, and range from 7 to 9 amps. The more amps the battery has the longer it will run on a full charge. Your MarCum unit can be powered off of any battery that is 12 volts, even a large automotive or deep cycle batteries will work.

Is there a kit or process that would to jump start a Boat that uses two 12 volt deep cycle Marine Batteries?


Sort of depends on how your two batteries are connected. If your boat is a 12 volt system, then any car type booster will do the trick, or you could simply add a 3rd battery with a switch. When you stop for a day's fishing, turn the 3rd battery off. Turn it back on for a quick "jump-start" and leave it on for the trip back to dock to keep it charged.

How can I hook two 12 volt batteries together to produce 24 volt output. I have replaced the two older batteries but have not been able to get the two new batteries to produce the necessary 24volts


Hooking up 2 batteries (IN SERIES) will give you 24 volts. First make sure the 2 batteries are exactly the same. Do not use mismatched batteries. Hook the POSITIVE of first battery to the NEGATIVE of the second battery. Then hook your LEADS ( hot and ground) to the 2 remaining posts. That will give you 24 volts. When charging the batteries with a charger, hook the charger up to the LEAD POSTS.

20,000 watts capacitor meter reading 13.9 with 2 battery & 250 alternator


Hello! The required voltage is 24 volts...which means two 12 volt batteries connected in series...It sounds as if you have two 12 volt batteries connected in parallel...Which doubles the amps and leaves the voltage at 12 volts...Connect the negative of one battery to the positive of the second battery...Then from the positive of battery #1 to the negative of battery #2 is the required 24 volts for the Kole...Guru...saailer

I cannot get a clear high definition picture on my gps. also no fish symbols on sonar. low voltage message keeps appearing on screen. any help would really be appreciated.


sounds like you might not be getting a full 12 volts DC to the unit. check the voltage with a volt meter,, and also check to make sure that your battery/batteries are in top shape and charging properly. ( one bad battery in a bank of many can cause voltage issues ).

Mercury outboard over charging


Your motor is fine. It needs to put out more than 12 volts or the battery will not charge. Most alternators put out between 13 - 17 volts, so this is well within the range.
