Berkley Saltwater Gulp! Eel
this eel is really durable but flexible which is cool becuase usually you only get one or the other i like to use the red eel the natural eel or the black eel but the other colors seem to blend in too much with sand dirt and weeds
this works much better than the storm eel but you need to buy a lip for this eel or it has really no action even if you just cut a peice out of the face it will work also you should get a live bait needle to put a hook at the end and the head becuase if oyu dont the tail will be bitten off a lot over all i catch a lot of stripers both in fresh and saltwater

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.

Although not used, these will take Cobia as they migrate through the Gulf. The GULP scent will be attractive and help these wary fish to take the bait. Darker baits are better. These will be rigged in the head with a circle hook and could be wire pinned to the rear of the bait with a small treble hook in case the fish strikes short.

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.
