If the current is ripping. Cast em up stream and let them drift using a coventional or baitrunner. If the current is ripping hard some rubbah core weights may be needed to get the eel into the strike zone near the bottom.

Hi all, first post. Apologies in advance for reviving a three year old thread, but this one seemed the most appropriate to my question...

I want to try live eels from the beaches of LI south shore, but the waves break so far out and the riptide can get so bad, that I need at least a four oz. pyramid to get my bait where it needs to be and keep it from washing up on shore.

Could I possibly substitute the egg sinker in Sudsy's post #4 with a 4oz pyramid on a sinker slide, or am I just asking for tangles?

Am I just better off sticking to clam and the weight at the bottom under these conditions?
