i have read in books about stripper fising that a rigged eel used like a plug has had good success!the eel will last a very long time if it is frozen and rethawed again and again. any one using this method?
Rigged eels are deadly. You can freeze and refreeze them and they still catch. The best-illustrated instructions I've seen was in a Bill Muller book called "Secrets of Night Fishing". The book has an excellent rigged eel howto by Al Bentsen.
