Got out today for my first eel outing of the season so I figured I'd play with the new buttons (site looks great btw) and post up a report. Had a high tide and rising which sets up my favorite spot the way I like. Chunked some herring that I caught and froze over the winter. Had nothing for a while but when the sun went down and the tide topped out the eels started to bite. Landed five including two fat snakes over 20". Missed a bunch of bites with one almost stealing a rod- clicker on, but freespool not, oops. Hit was crazy hard maybe a striper or big cat. Lost a lot of rigs when I got "laired-up" by the eels. If your bait lands within reach of their 'lair' they'll grab it without transmitting a bite, clean the hook, then snag it somewhere. Go to reel in and done, snap. At least that's my theory anyway. Eels do wierd things to tackle, and the mind.
