When you tie on the "shocker" use an allbright knot, I like to coat mine with a thin layer of plyobond, it is a water proof contact cement... there are other brands that are just as good..

In shallows and along rocks and jetties I like to cast and retrieve the eels..S-L-O-W-L-Y.... I hold my rod tip between 12-1:00 when I feel a bump I drop the rod to 3:00 straight in front of me, when the line come tight NAIL 'EM! it takes practice... lots of practice, it is almost an instinct for me...

when drifting the mouth or the deep water in the badgers I let the eels swim to the bottom, you want a lively eel for this,one note though, during large tides like we have now, I have been known to add a small rubber core sinker to the leader to get the eel into the "danger zone" before I drift by it..... when drifting I tend to fish with an open bail and "educated" finger, I give 'em about three seconds before I nail 'em, if it's a good one she'll have it, if it's a schoolie you will probably miss....

Hook size.... always use the SMALLEST you can get away with.... it takes ALOT harder hook set to sink a 6/0 or 7/0 , I used 1/0 for years..... FYI... my 61 lber was landed with a 1/0 eagle claw hook, the size of the bait dictates how big of a hook I use..... I get a lot of fish hooke in the roof of the mouth or in the jaw bone, people that use tuna sized hooks miss or drop those fish....

As an aside, smaller hooks do less damage to the fish, should you have to leave one in a fish, the small hook is less obtrusive and rusts out quicker....
