Menahden is the primary food in the ocean. I have seen guys doing it for years while we crushed fish around them. I have even pulled eels when the bite was good and they took everything but the eels most of the time.
like kevin said eels do work but the old saying "match the hatch" is there for a reason. when i cut open the 45 lber from the high rise about 2 weeks ago she had 4 eels in her. tue @ damneck the fish were throwing up menhaden all over the deck. i had 3 eels in the water not a hit. both mojo trailers. as soon as i changed the trailers to tomics they went off.
