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

been fishing off the dock with clams at night. got a few bass but instead of dogfish coming in i've been running into big fat eels. once they come in you can't get the bait past them. so gross, but also very tasty.
