Catching Eel In Sydney


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure why you'd want to target eels, filthy things really, slimy tangle themselves through your lines to the max and often choke themselves, doubt these eels would be anything special on the plate either.

We've got quite a few though, you'll often find resident ones hanging around jetty's and they generally take bigger baits meant for something else. You could find them in the hawkesbury, a lot of people have them taking jew baits.

There i one type of eel that looks like a pike, i think its a conger (or it looks like one) and there are loads at illawong, beautiful eating with butter and lemon but only bad thing is its really boney and mum said couldnt enjoy eating it coz of the bones. but you should probably takes them and eat them to clean up. most snags are actually big eels so try to take it in a little before you snap it.:D
