“Monkey-faced eel fishing” in Northern California.

Here’s a video of my friend and me fishing for some Monkey-face eels,,,,,This was my “first time” fishing for eels and I had a “blast”,,,,,I will definitely do it again!!! For a poke pole all that we did was tie a small peace of fishing line with a small hook to the top eye of an old fishing rod and sure enough that was good enough,,,,,eel fishing is so much fun and you really don’t need nothing special,,,,Just an old rod and some line and a small hook,,,,,Well that’s all that we did and we caught plenty! At the end of this fishing trip we ended up only keeping “one” decent sized Monkey-face eel that weighted 4.5 lbs,,,,,,,,Every other eel and fish that we caught that day were released unharmed. This was just another “fun” day of fishing!!!! “Peace”…

    How North is this? Is this Humboldt county?

  13. SharkMan650 says:

    Well here in Northern California I have caught monkey-faced eels in many places along the coast,,,,If there are holes under the rocks there’s most likley eels or some kind of sea life in them,,,,,”but” I’m not sure about the east coast but if your on the east coast you should give it a try to see if there are eels under the rocks and in the holes there?

  14. askinnywhiteguy22 says:

    Can you just go fishing for eels anywhere? East and west coast? Or are they anywhere specific?

  15. SharkMan650 says:

    “Hey there”,,,,,For bait I was using “both” Shrimp & Squid,,,,,”Peace Always”,,,,SharkMan650

  16. halibutboy98 says:

    your bait was pretty big what was it and nice man!

  17. SharkMan650 says:

    Well we only fished a few times for these eels and when we went we never triped on the record but I checked since then and it’s not a hard record to beat!!!,,,,I’ve caught several big ones and maybe the next time I go for them and if I think it’s big enough I’ll turn it in,,,,”but truthfully”,,,I’m not sure if I would want to hold the record for a monkey faced eel,,,,”haahaahaa,,,,”peace always”…
