    Default cut eel for catfish bait ?

    I used it some in late summer this year and caught some small cats in the piankatank. Granted we dont have the size of fish here that can be found in other rivers but caught blue cats up to 7 pounds and white cats up to 5 pounds
    also caught some puppy drum with it.

    Lots and lots of people use them. Whole or cut. Small chunks or 3-4' pieces. Very tough so it stays on the hook forever.

    Good luck,

    I have used them several times and only had one large fish on that got off. Shad is better I think. They may bite eels better at certain times of the year that I haven't tried. I tried them in march and didn't do well. If I only had one other bait other than shad I'd use eels.

    When the water gets cold leave the eels off the boat.

    I specialize in using cut eels, especially when the crabs are in the river.

    I use eels about %90 of the time .Mainly because of lack of skill with a cast net.I love using them because I almost always catch fish big and small .In fact I caught 1 blue and 2 stripers last night on eels.I like the way I can use the same bait all night long.Cut bait works great too though!
