Hard clam/quahogs are pretty good eel bait.Get the biggest hogs you can find. Used horseshoe crab back in the day. Egged up females fished really well.We would use a machete to hack them into four square.

I've found fresh herring/mackeral to be good bait for eels. I'm an eel fisherman from Nova Scotia and that works best for me.

Guy from seafood company comes to the pier and sucks em into a big truck, weighs the truck before and after, writes you a check and drives away.  Says a lot of em go to Asian countries.  The larger the better for the price.  Large were ~$2.75/#.  Small pencils are ~$2/#  They process and package.  Most all get smoked  Cool PUFF PUFF PASS  laugh laugh laugh

It's fairly simple to build your own Eel Traps.  There is a tutorial at eeltraps.com.  It is easy to find bait too, since you can just use minnows.  Best of luck to you.
