Default artificial eels

Would the artificial eels work in freshwater impoundments, even though eels don't constitute much of their diet like shad do?

If they would work, are they suitable for trolling with downriggers and planer boards?

Default Re: artificial eels

Absolutely!
A Striper is a Striper is a Striper.
I've caught them in the ocean and in the impoundments, using salt water techniques.
I've caught them in the impoundments using a tube and worm.

Even though there may not be eels living in the impoundment, the Stripers have a genetic imprint about what they feed on. Eels are high on the list of "candy".
I'd use a downrigger, lead core line, and even flatlining if the water is shallow.
Give it your best shot. You have nothing to lose and all to gain.
