I go to this stretch of river every year to catch eel in West Virginia. Anybody know of a place that I can catch them in Ohio? Its great fun!
In the picture is my cousin holding an eel that he caught on of the first nights Ive gone. As hard as they fight, its even better on ultra light gear :D

Cool.. I grew up in the deep south and we would catch them there in both fresh and saltwater. You're right they fight like you caught a monster. What do you do with them?
