    CheeseheadCory,my buddy, and I fished Pike Sat. from about 1pm till 1am. Hot all day and more boat traffic than I have ever seen down there. Water was low with barely any current. All in all it was a lousy day of fishing, we were using shad and tried just about every spot we could think of. Only caught a couple of cats and a sauger. The only thing that made the trip worthwhile was an eel Cory caught right before we left. I had never seen one except in pictures and had no idea they could make it that far up the river. Pretty cool looking.

    I doubt they're poisonous, didn't see any noticeable teeth, but when you touch them they go completely nuts, thrashing about and tieing themselves into knots - pretty freaky!

    I caught this salt water eel in the Bahamas that had big eye teeth and snapped at anything that came near it. :eek: Apologies for the poor pic of the eel.

  4. I've seen a few eels come out of the river, but they're not poisonous and they don't bite.
