    Default Best bait to catch eels w/right now?

    Does anyone have a favorite bait to use to catch eels in an eelpot right now? I usually try chicken livers in the summer on the Potomac. Is there a better bait to use? Thanks

    Put some gizzard shad gut pockets in there and some fresh water mussels with cracked shells...

    Blue Crabs work good too.
