Another specialized technique employs the fishing gaff, essentially a large hook lashed to the end of a sturdy pole. The gaff is used to catch electric eels in shallow quiet backwaters. The eels must surface to breathe air. The trick is to gaff the eel when it rises and pull it to shore without being shocked!
