Fish Shocking-"Skoal Box" Style

In the spring of 1979 an individual from Fort Worth, Texas, circulated a flier throughout Arkansas which advertised an electronic catfish unit that could catch more catfish than hoop nets, gill nets, trammel nets, fish traps, trot lines, snag lines, or most any other fishing devices. He further stated that as with anything that catches a lot of fish, the units are illegal in Texas, and are sold with the intention that they are used only on private lakes or stock tanks. What this individual has done, with the exception of making himself wealthy, is create a device capable of completely wiping out 2 species of catfish and an enforcement nightmare.
