Hi...

I might visit Karwar some time in October. There are these eels, which are thrown by the fisher men. They are about 2 feet in length, and real hardy. I was wondering if these can be used as live bait?

The main fish caught by the locals are MJs and Groupers.

The main fishing areas would be Off a bridge or Off a breakwater.

If these eels can be used, what type of rig should be used. If a float is not used, will the eels go under the rocks and cause a snag?

Here's a picture of the eels.

I have heard people using them as cut baits and live baits in striped bass forums. I had caught a few before and I did not have the heart to go near it, let alone touch/handle it. Had to cut the line to release. Planing to visit Gokarna and places down south this 28th and my friend was saying there are plenty of eels to be found there. Might try them as cut bait, if my friends agree to cut them :D. Good luck!

I would never use live eels as bait, Live eels are so slimey and slippery and trying to free themselves from the hook , they have this very dirty habit of making a knot of their body and gradually move the knot up towards their head and then the knot is transfered on ur rig , many times they even shut themselves up by making many knots of line on their head and mouth :P thus messing up your whole rig :x I have experienced :wink:

Still one can use cut pieces of dead eels as bait and I sure mangrove jacks would love to take a bite of their boneless adversary :twisted: { have seen locals use cut pieces of eels as bait }
so use of eel as bait should be considered when other more tempting baits are not available in the markets :P

Not to discourage you, but found this video of a guy struggling to rig up a live eel bait amusing.

As lionheart said, even I have experienced the knotty behavior of these eels... :) Reading all the suggestions, I guess eels are best left alone. :)

Off topic, can small mullets be caught on hook?
