Hi friend,
Never caught an eel with worms, out here in the hills the locals make it a point to use dead bait of small brook trout(they say nothing else will do), and the hooks are unusually large made from high tempered steel wire manually.
I dont know if all this is not true but the locals sure do catch a lot of eels this way.

Shaphan,
You are aware of my fascinations for trout. I will never used it as a bait, for anything.

MKens' method works... try rocky areas in the evenings... eels mainly come out in low light conditions!!

dragging this post back, we normally use a second rod for eels and just cast it further up the bank and leave the rod by our hand,,, but you have to sit still as the eel is very sensitive to vibration... for bait we would use maggots or worm, but if eels are your actual target we would buy a tin of smelly cat food, the smellier the better, and to unhook them try laying them on their back...doug

I have seen 2 kinds of eels where i go fishing in kerala one is the Indian mottled eel and the Spiny eel. Both are good to eat. As far as i know the mottled eel eats pretty much every thing from worm to cut bait anything as long as it stinks . I usually catch them on fresh water snails and earth worms. The Spiny eels i had caught was on earth worm and small fish. Sine they live in holes and between rocks it is pretty hard to retreave them.... Once they they take the line between the rock make sure you pull the line out carefully as the line may rub against the rock and snap.

Wish you tight lines

Chilwa is a minnow. Any small fish is called a chilwa. The trick it to find the ones that will be readily taken by predators. From what I have seen the ones with no spines and that are fleshy work better. The most common one is a Putiya or Tinfoil barb, easily identified by the dot near its tail.

Indian Gypsy help! You know most of them by name.

If you want your chilwa to be alive and kicking then through the mouth or very carefully just below the dorsal fin. I prefer this one but you have to make sure that you do not damage the lateral line, spine or organ. snipping off the tailfin is another good idea as it gets the chilwa to swim funny.

Dead bait. I find the cutting a minnow into two and using the head is a better option.

the morte productive of the two is the live chilwa. Dead bait gets a lot of catfish and eel.

how deep would you fish the livebait... its not allowed in england,as far as i know... and would you use a heavy float to keep the bait up in the water?

That depends. In most place I fish live bait without any weight (maybe just a little if there is a flow) and let the tailless fish do the work.

When it comes to Sol/Murrel it is better to have the bait a foot below the surface.
