Default Re: Bloodworms, Live Eels or chunked eels?

Thanks for the tips. I live on the bay, but go into the kennebec when trying to grab stripers. I live a little below the mouth of the cathance and do not think stripers come over here, but eels do. Neighbor is going to let me use one of his many eel traps, so I think I will trap those and use them live. Seems likes live eels are better and will save me money. Guy at Johnsons said to hook the tail with a 6/0 octupus hook, but a guy on the river said go throught the jaw. You guys using the 3way swivel with something like a 2oz and slowly retrieving it in or do you just let the eel swim aorund.
