YUCK!!! I could not eat those slimy bastards...
Eels are my least favorite (yet very productive) bait. The way they wrap around your wrist when hooking them in the lip. So gross... But nothing works better at night in the fall for bass. EXCEPT for baby Blackfish. But that's illegal, so I wouldn't know anything about that. But I would imagine that a nice little 4"-6" black would make for a perfect bait.
I do have friends that agree with you and love eating them eels

I hook eels through the tail to keep them from twisting up on the leader. They're great bait for Cobia.
