My grandfather would take us every year we fished eels in the ulster county area in the late 90's and early 2000's, and with great success catching mainly large stripers over 20lbs . Here is an old photo with my pap and I . Sometime during the mid 2000's the bite started to fade on eels and we switched to chunk herrring, it also became more difficult to buy eels, and mucheasier to get fresh herring. I still wonder if fishing eels wouldn't yield less bites but catch more trophy sizes stripers .....
