Default Re: American eel trapping

man that's awesome all them eels. i think i should move somewhere that has stripers all year round lol, you guys are lucky. i ended up not being able to wait till next april for our hudson striper run so i drove down to connecticut this past weekend and fished from shore for a lil. got my first sea robin on a sandworm.

i know eels can live in fresh and saltwater, but i'm wondering, if i catch eels where i live up the hudson where it's pure freshwater and drive down to ct and toss them in saltwater, would that shock them to death? i'll also have to see if i can transport them across state borders like that.

We only have stripers from mid May to mid October...winter lasts a long time inbetween.

Question Re: American eel trapping

Never thought to ask this one; What time of year or how early could I expect to catch eels. I don't want to go toss pots if the eels are not around.
I plan on going to a fresh water spot first off.

Roccus, what are the regs in Newburyport?

Second question, what kind of salinity are they looking for? I'm wondering if you can catch them near the Rt.1 bridge, or if you have to go further upriver to get fresher water, of if you have to go further downriver to get more salty.
