    IVE BEEN TOLD EELS WORK GREAT AS BAIT FOR JUST ABOUT ANY CAT IN MOST RIVERS AND LAKES, AND HAVE USED THEM TO SOME SUCSESS BUT NOW I TRY TO CATCH THEM IN MY NEW POTS BUT NOTHING. IM BAITING THE POT WITH BEEF LIVER, ABOUT 0.5 LBS LEAVEING OVER NIGHT AND THEN CHECKING THE NEXT NIGHT I PUT THEM AT THE BOTTOM OF SPILLWAYS AND DAMS OF TRIBUTARIS OF NEUSE RIVER HERE IN NC.IF ANY ONE HAS IDEAS THAT COULD HELP, PLEASE CHIME IN IM AT A LOSS? :confused:

    Not sure where to catch them in the neuse, but there is an eel farm over in trenton, I believe they are 1.50 each. A few eels go a long way.
