American Eel Specifications

Water: Fresh Where: Inshore / Rivers And Streams
Size: Most common at a pound or so but capable of growing much larger, up to about four feet and 9 pounds.
Fight: Given its body shape and relative size, a poor gamester at best.
Deliciousness: Good
Range: Both Coasts Technique: Still Fishing
Baits: Earthworms / Fresh Water Baits Tackle: Spinning

The American EEl is characterized by a snake like body that is grey or green to darker along his topside and lighter to yellowy along his underside. He has a small rounded off head and his fins, both anal and dorsal run the length of the body to a snake like tail.

These "fish" are found in coastal river and streams, and even lakes, hiding in the cover of vegetation or near structure.

Earthworms or cutbait make for the best natural bait, while artificials are not used when targeting this "fish".
