The Schuykill River has a big population of American eels. Has anyone ever caught a flathead on an eel? If you say that a flathead will eat anything, wouln't it eat an eel? One thing about eels are that they are very lively!!!! The will squirm and wiggle around for hours. I have caught 3 different stripers on the same eel. peace, tan "SAVE PA FLATHEADS"
