    As already said, I hope you saved it, some of the best cut bait I know of in the Rivers, last a long time too. One time, I actually caught 8 Blue Cats on one chunk of eel, and the bait was still fine but they had stopped biting.

    Matt that eel makes some of the best sushi, or you can just lightly braze it and serve itwith white rice for a realy good eat. Just don't over cook it, it should be slightly warm when done not cooked thruogh.
