Will this work with my Electric fencing?

A regular eye lag bolt that the gate handle will attach to and from that eye bolt will also continue the run of the wire. Will that in turn ground out the fencing? Does that eye lag bolt have to have some kind of rubber insulator it screws into the wood or between where it screws in and the part that the wire will touch?

What you have decribed will ground your fence out. You need to use one of these: Gate Hook on a corner/gate connection.

what about for the corners? I used the ceramic wood insulators so would I need to use a rubber piece to go thru the ceramic hole for that portion that the wire would go through?

The ceramic insulators will work for the corners without the rubber piece would not be needed.
