So i was really bored Sat. so i went through my freezer looking for left over anchovies or sardines or anything. What i found was a lamprey eel left over from sturgy fishing. So i decided i would try it out i live right across the street from the sutter bypass so i walk to one of my good holes and bam caught 2 cats about 2 pounds and 3 pounds on EEl not many bites other than that but soon it will be awsome.

I didn't know cats would bite on eel. Thanks for the info, stalker. From what I've heard, eel is almost crab and crawdad proof.

I didnt know either. And man its hard for me to get it off the hook let alone a fish ;D

I also used eel in the past and caught a couple fish, Stripers, Kingfish and flounder will also bite on it beside sturgeon. Eel is similar to midshipmen, really tough and rubbery, stayes on the hook really good.

Stalker do you live near Franklin road on the Meridian side? I use to live up your way.

I live pretty close to that. I fished off franklin in the bypass a couple days ago and caught a bunch of small ones.

I can see why eel would work it smells worse thal liver. Did you slice it and wrap the meat side out. Thats what I do for dinos.
