Tattoo Eel Skin Swimmers

I was reminded once again last night of the power of rigged eels and eelskin swimmers under the moonlight. After a good swim out to a favorite spot that seems to produce when the moon gets bright my Sluggo's and all other eel like lures were ignored save for a few small bass.

Rob however had eelskins ready to swim and was promptly rewarded with a 39# bass.

If you haven't fished rigged eels before, you should. Especially on those tough nights when it seems like no one is home, they simply work. Take the time to rig a few up, it's worth the effort.

For additional info on eelskins and a good how-to Zeno's book has all the details:

pete,

will those swim with 2/0 4x vmcs, or do they need 1/0's. Thanks.

Tattoo includes hooks and split rings, #2's. #1's should be fine, 1/0's might need to be cut to not marry. 2/0's at your own discretion.
