Niru-san,

My family is from Poland and eel is actually very popular there as well. I grew up eating smoked eel and I absolutely love it. When my grandmother was alive, one of my favorite dishes from her was pan seared eel in home made butter. Just talking about it, I can smell the butter and eel. Not sure how you fish for them but for me its a sea worms on a simple high low rig with gold hooks.

Your eel looks tasty!

We use simple tackle as pic, hook for eel(leader45cm),30-40g of sinker,nightlight on the tip.
Bait is earthworm.

Thank you. :D It ís interesting. I have heard that eel is a popular foodstuff in Europe.There people eat like that.
In japan, we usually eat "Kabayaki" like pic. It's one of typical Japanese cuisine and a feast for us.

You're welcome Niru-san.  Here in New England we trap eels and then use them for bait for striped bass.  Not many people eat them.

I'm curious to learn a bit more about how you fish for them?
Actually we are one of the few states that has a commercial elver industry (post lava levels). They go for big money, caught and kept alive, then sold to the Asian farms that raise them for food. I remember catching them all the time when striper fishing at night using the sand/blood worms. Same thing in fresh water, night crawlers on bottom at night. Anywhere just about every body of water that is connected by a stream/brook will have them since the young migrate upstream from the ocean, and dams donít stop the young.

Thank you. :D
My fishing policy is catching good taste fish, so this time I'm very happy. Eel is so tasty fish.

Yes I agree.  It is fun to catch and release but catching and preparing and eating is quite the experience.  I cant wait for ice fishing season for that reason!

Thank you. :D I see, I learned a lot. Eel farming is a big industry in some region of Japan. Indeed, eels now have the potential to be designated as an endangered species. If complete aquaculture is being studied and the technology is complete, I think it would be very good and hope that. I pray that the culture of eating eel will not disappear.

Thank you. :D  I am particularly gluttonous, so I think so. And me too, I can't wait ice fishing season.

This summer heat has made me dream about being on the ice. I think  the ice shanty forum is getting more daily activity right now than this site.

I made kokanee rice. Seasoning is soy sauce, mirin, sake and soup stock. Green vegetable is Japanese herb "Mitsuba". It's so delicious.
