should you use big eels or small eels and if you use big eels should you put more then one hook in him... where do you put the hook at.. just looking to see what people do when rigging eels and do you use fish finder rigs...
I like eels better then 10" since I am a believer in big baits = big fish. a 24" bass can swallow a 12" ell with no problem. so why not go bigger. The bigger the eel the longer I let the fish take it. I hook through bot eyes so it can breath naturally.
I used to think that the bigger the eel, the bigger the fish. I am not so sure now.
They attack the head, are voracious feeders, and when hungry will eat most anything.
What I have found that when I catch a striper, and he bloodies, but does not kill the eel, the wounded eel will on most occassions attract another striper. the obvious question would be "Why don't you start out with a bloodied eel?" I think some guys do it, but I have not yet tried it.....Gene
