Eels breed in freshwater/brackish water too. They are very common in lakes and rivers.

Well aware of that. I still don't think their pea sized brain remembers & computes that 200+ miles from where they were spawned as an eel gets towed by at 3+knots. How do you explain catching male bass on eels if the females are protecting the eggs?

Eels breed in the Sargasso Sea, far from the breeding areas of Striped Bass

I was speaking as to where bass spawn. I forgot to insert a comma in my second sentence between "spawned & as". I'm still not buying that bass eat eels only out of pure instinct as to protect their young.

Ok, in the school of "Let's eat Grandma". Punctuation is important. I don't go with the instinctive eating thing either

I was always under the impression that Bass ate eels because they liked eating eels.
Last year when i went out of Montauk to block Island. One of the mates told us that the Bass eat the eels, not because they like them, but because they hate them, and when they ate young the eels try to kill them, and they eat them through self preservation.
I'm not sure which is correct or not, but i think we can agree that you can catch some big Bass on live eel.

I love that old wives tale, momma protecting their brood. Lol.
Bass eat damn near anything they can fit in their mouths and swallow which proves to be an amazing feat often even including whole crab and lobsters. The fact that bass and eels share the same water at the same times its a perfect predator/ prey relationship same as bass/ bunker and lion/ wildebeest is lost on some.

I fished off the beach at Far Rockaway yesterday, and caught small fluke, snapper and of course what else? Sea Robin. lol
I was using clam and squid strips.
The water down there is crazy. Lots of movement drop offs all over the place.

DD's are my favorite for them also. When they're avoiding everything else thrown at them they'll often smash the DD. I Albright about a 3 foot section of Seaguars Fluro leader on to it. They have killer eyesight and I get more hits with the Fluro. All my tuna, dolphin, wahoo, billfish rigs use Seaguars.
