Berkley® Saltwater Gulp!® Eel
Ran these out against live eels in Nantucket sound / Waquoit bay area on Cape. Outperformed the live eels. used a 4/0 1/8 oz jig on the edge of a pretty good rip line. The live eels only produced 2 fish with a lot of loss time. Got a bakers dozen on just 1 of these. Only draw back is 1/2 of the package had folded tails.

Will do in a pinch!
I use these for striped bass! They don't beat the live eels, but what does! Live bait can be expensive, and in my area, impossible to find! So these will do when I can't get the real ones!

I'm a gulp fan but these eels have no action. No mater how you rig them they come back like an arrow. I finally rigged them on a SPRO bucktail and jigged them with no luck befor I switched to a waxwing to catch fish.

all you need are 2 hooks.
this eel catches me tons of fish. Mostly stripers. they just love them. for rigging you should use 2 hooks and a heavy bullet sinker. also cut a piece of the face out of it to give it more action. this bait is flexible and durable. thanks berkley.
