Berkley Powerbait Saltwater Pre-Rigged Eel Reviews:
Easier then the real thing!
Having used live eels for surfcating going after Stripers, I hate the feeling of the live eels wrapping around your arm when you go to bait your rigging. These take the setup hassels and extra care of dealing with Live bait away so you can just deal with fishing!
These are great for striped bass when the real ones aren't available or when you need to get deep quickly to avoid the bluefish, which love them too (unfortunately, unless you're cabellas). I've had good luck with the stinger hook so far.
I tried these last week fishing out of Steinhatchee. I only had time to make four casts because of a thunderstorm right on our heels. I hooked a nice cobia on the black 10" eel on the fourth cast and the second hook pulled out of the eel body. I didn't lose the lure, but I lost faith in the lure. I had plans for dinner but this lure let me down. Don't trust it.
