Default BIG STRIPERS FINALLY ARRIVE IN THE BRONX... WILL EELS WORK?

In the last week or so ive been hearing of keepers being caught in numbers from the surf.

the bunker is gone from the area and im not sure if its still a viable bait

gonna try live eels at one of my spots tomorrow night along with bunker and clams but im wondering if anyone has tried eeling from the surf

Yer kidding right?

Eels from the surf has been a staple technique since the days of handlining.
4' 30# flouro leader, 5/0 hook under the chin and out the eye. Cast it out and fish it back like a plug - but do it slooooow. Rod tip up, on a hit bow to the fish, when the line comes tight - stick em and hold on !

Default eels

i wish id have seen your post before the trip.

we caught nothing all night and we had clams bunker squid and eels.

i was told to chuck em out with a 4-5 oz sinker and pull em out from under the rocks periodically.

truth is i dont think the fish were around that night we only had four hits all night and we blanked.

ill try swimming em slow next time.

thanx suds
