rubber eels? getting em to work like a live eel is tricky. petijean makes a cone for flyfishing that would get em to wiggle better if you troll rubber eels deep. the smaller ones are for smaller fish (though you may get large on them) but if in your boat, jig them or even drift them close if not on the bottom. they will follow it for a while and if it don;t move right or does not get worked to thier liking you could be in for a long day. unless you like bluefish?

Better add a hook, or you'll have a bag full of plastic 1/2 eels.

i got a 1 and 1/4 oz one for christmas so it like 6 or 8 inches, didnt measure.

I cast them into the surf and just because your using big lures dosent mean you have to target large fish.

^^ those are the weighted ones.

The 8inch one i would troll as a trailer on a umbrealla rig from a boat.

If you have just the eel like a berkly gulp one try adding it with a bucktail either casting or jigging.

Perhaps do it like as if you were fishing for large mouth with the rubber worms by hooking it on to the hook just like a finese jig than add a bullet sinker about 1/4 to 1/2 oz and cast it.

3 inch one would be great for around bridges and the flats at night.

Rig em on a tin squid and use a lot of smelly Jelly - very often they catch as well or even better then the real thing, particularly when the primary bait in the area is large sand eels.
