Good question.  Don't freshwater eels run smaller?  I caught one in a crab trap last year, had I known then what it costs on the market, I'd have kept it...Smiley

How do you attach eel to a trotline? 

You would need to cut at least a 2" piece to tie a line or bunji cord around it.

Got 500lbs of eel from Delaware Valley Fish company and brined them myself, very easy to do...... I cut them into 2-3" pieces and dry salt them for storage...once that is done they keep forever and will toughen up really nice so they don't pop off the line and last for a long time. At the end of the day I replace any baits needed and freeze the line till next trip. I paid 1.25/lb and they were perfect size.

cskiff, i've been working with the new jersey aquaculture advisory council for about three years now about farming eels, in those three years i made alot of progress on promoting eel farming to them. i got very close to be able to start a pilot operation when a petition to enlist the american eel as an endangered species Roll Eyes came out. once they heard that, three years of work went down the drain. they didnt want me to touch an elver with a ten foot stick.
i think eel farming for the bait industry has great potential where i live... if they would only let me... Embarassed

theres an eel farm in north carolina that caters to the bait industry

Hey Eelfisher,
I found the website for that NC operation.  I hope it works out for you. It seems like there is a lot of potential and not just in bait.  I read there is a demand for some 200000 Tons of eel worldwide per year.  [Sam Hill] I love those eel sushi roll with that sauce,  Yum!!!!  Good luck.
