  • Eels....love em!

    Hello Everyone,

    I am new to the forum, looking forward to speaking to you all and sharing knowledge. I am a bit of an all rounder with a big passion for Eel, chub and rudd fishing but to be honest I could...and do... fish for anything. I am looking for a new Eel water in Norfolk. I realise that this is a tall order as Eels much like the Anglers chasing them are elusive beasts and almost all the time anglers on a lake don't even know if there are Eels around or not but any information anyone has would be much appreciated

    Cheers

    Ant

      Most who target Eels are talking BIG ones and in this country they are rarer than the proverbial hens teeth,I have a few friends who specialise in targeting them but like me they are from the Midlands so would not be a lot of help on the location front.
      I wish you every success in your endeavour,I will be surprised if you get much help with this one on here as specimen anglers are few and far between and there"s probably more lottery jackpot winners than Eel specialists,.
      Let us know how you get on and post any pics it would be nice to see a few specimens posted amongst the many for sale tackle pics.
      Tight lines bud and don't let the blanks drive you totally insane.
      Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

                  Fished a couple of Estate lakes in Norfolk area ,many years ago
                  they were reputed to hold Big eels ,it May be worth asking at local tackle shops for advice
                  But if I was you I would be talking to the more established commercial Fisheries in the area
                  Most of the very Big Eels over the last few years have been caught from Match Fisheries
                  a Small Dead bait during the Night could throw up some Surprises
                  Some owners may give you permission to fish for them .

                            I may well take you up on that, as I plan to take some holiday from work at around that time.
