Hi everyone. I'm new to the site. I checked eels. but cannot always find them because of their lack of availability in the Hudson valley. Gander Mt. has them some of the time but not always. Has anyone tried drifting eels?
No hardware but leader and hook. It works well. Good luck.

Squid, for the sole purpose that my largest striper ever came on a fluke rig with a nice piece of squid on it.

Other than that its definitely plugs.

This time of year it's eels for me....especially at night. Last 2 trips have resulted in 12 fish landed...10 keeper size....the 2 biggest being 38" and 39" and both fatties.

All fish successfully released as well

I think the topic was recently addressed (again) in another thread.
Specifically look for tutorials by Roccus or threads by Sudsy.
Hook it through the lower jaw and out an eye. Let it swim to the floor naturally and reel in very slowly. Rinse and repeat.
The setups are in the tutorials.

Has been mentioned by someone. I'm with you always use it and was surprised it wasn't included.

Because a lot of the posts are by guys down NY and Jersey where fresh mackerel isn't readily available. They pass us by quickly, once in the spring and again in the early winter, and many miles offshore.
Bunker we have huge amounts of, right on the beach.

It is amazing nobody picked crabs, especially those who fish in NJ. Calicos are a lot tougher to come by, have to rake em yourself, but it's fun to go through the trouble. I just started it last year, technique and equipment are not my strong suit, but can see it's benefits. Problem is I only get to apply it when I'm on vacation the month of August, but I'll bet I grab a striper this year on em, even in between the seasons.

I'm a plugger too,...nothing is more exciting than catching a Bass on an artificial plug . and of the multitudes of plugs to choose from Top Water by far is the most rewarding....To actually see and hear a BIG BASS slap a top water plug out of the water then engulf with abandon gets the adrenelin flowing like no other strike. GAME ON!!!!
