My father grew up at linkwater and eel was all they and the locals used to use for catching snapper in the pelorus out of the dingy in the old days and he still swears by its use now.

I have tried it a couple of times but have had no real luck with it the carpet sharks loved it at seaview and a couple of skates were taken on it but that was about it.

Its a very oily flesh which makes it excellent and even though i never caught much with it i didnt actually give it a good try ever. I found the strip baiting with it was the best way to use it.
