The boys aboard the Flow Control shot out last night after the winds died down. Drifted some eels and had 3 nice keepers landed, the largest being a 43" that snaped my net in half!!!! Congrats to Chris who caught it breaking in his new rod!



Thanks to Mike for being our eye in the sky and putting us on the fish. We miss you buddy



Lost a 4th at the boat, that I will be back to hook very, very soon.




43", 37", 33"

Net shouldn't snap in half. How did it break?

Nice!!! Gotta get me some eels. Do you need a live well with eels? I hear they’re pretty hardy... Maybe I should just rig some dead ones.

No livewell necessary. Just a little bit of water changed every now and then is enough. Some people keep 'em on some ice as it slows them and makes them a bit easier to handle. Have a dry rag available for handling them. Some people will grab them by the head and slap their tails against the something to stun them so they're less active and won't knot themselves up. I don't use ice and I definitely don't stun them. The more active, the better.

Use a fishfinder rig with about 4' leader to the hook. Hook them up through the lower jaw and out an eye and get them in the water immediately after hooking them. If your eel tires, unhook it and use another one but don't discard it - you can use him again some other day, just put the hook out the other eye.

Live eels are bass candy!

alive

actually, you better off keeping them out of water, They can breathe oxygen out of the water for a long period of time. Overnight in the back of a pick up layin in the bed for example. Sometimes they actually die in the water, because they use up all the oxygen in the water then die. Damp rag, over them and there fine for hours and hours..

2 - 5 gal. buckets.. top one has holes in the bottom small enough that the eels cant get through. Put the eels in the top bucket and the slime will drain into the bottom one so they don't drown in their own slime. Cover them with a wet rag or two and they should be good for at least a day maybe 2.

WOW thanx a lot, I have heard they were 'bass candy' but figured I needed a live well... apparently I don’t, so will be getting my hands on some this weekend.
Thanx for the help/advice
