The medium-sized Freshwater Eels, ranging from 10-16 inches in length, are now readily available as live bait. These farm-raised American Eels have a decent thickness, though their size may vary due to gender differences - females are usually longer and thinner while males are shorter and plumper.

  • Natural Movement: Live eels have a long, sinuous body that creates a realistic swimming motion in the water. This mimics the movements of a fleeing prey fish, triggering a strong predatory instinct in many species.
  • Scent & Flavor: Eels have a strong, fishy smell and a distinctive flavor. This scent trail can attract fish from a distance, and the taste can be irresistible to some predators.
  • Toughness and Durability: Compared to other live baits like minnows, eels are sturdier and survive longer on a hook. This allows them to stay active and attractive to fish for an extended period.
  • Versatility: Eels can be fished in various depths. You can bottom-fish them for catfish or burrowing species, troll them for larger fish, or suspend them mid-water for pelagic predators.

Note: Live Bait can only be picked up at the Store. Order online and pickup at our Virginia Outdoor Store during business hours. We do not ship live bait via carriers at this time.
