Default Re: They're all dead Jim!

So i have a 40 gallon aerated tank on my boat, and i need to keep some eels alive over night. you think it would be a good idea to put them in there so that they dont take up all the oxygen? It will be a bitch to get them out in the morning, but i dont know of any other easy ideas.

you dont need a tank over night in the boat, eels can breathe atmopheric air, just put them in a bucket that has a few drain holes, if the night is exceptioonaly warm, add a bag of ice and put he eels on top... drain holes are a must of they will drown in their own slime...

what do you mean by a few drain holes?

could i get a typicall bait bucket and suspend it in the water so that it is completely covered, and make a few holes in the bottom so that the slime can get out, and that the eels get oxygenated water?

if your using them to fish... they dont need water... just put them in a bucket , I use bucket with a modified bucket inside that has 1/4" holes drilled into the bottom to allow slime/water to drain out, the bottom bucket catches the "runoff" in fact, in time the eels will dry a little and be eaiser to handle, if they get too dry, remove the liner ( eels still in it) and dunk it in the water, hte eels are now w=once again cool and happy (slimy too)

Rickski,
Hooked up and running in the basement now. She's a keepa'.


My eel car. It hangs off the dock.


I like a cooler and an ice pack for fishing purposes. I don't use towels. The ice pack goes right in with the eels.
