All About…Eels!

“The eel is the only fish in the world that spawns in the middle of an ocean but spends its adult lives in rivers, lakes and streams (the opposite of most migratory fishes, like salmon and shad). Still to this day, no one has witnessed an adult eel spawning in the wild. The only reason we know that freshwater eels spawn in the ocean is because tiny eels in their larval stage have been found drifting near the surface thousands of miles from any shore.”

• “Chasing Blackfish A Worthwhile Pursuit “

“For the past few years, I nursed a mild guilt complex that I had never fished for blackfish.”
Charles Walsh in the Connecticut Post
