Ippi's Bait in Lynn sells live eels also.
Not sure if they sell pogies; give them a call.
The service is much friendlier at Ippi's.

Yes, same fish. And I don't know of any shops in Massachusets that sell them live. Dead fresh (like 3 hours old) is about the best you'll do.
Somebody might be willing to steer you to some place where you could net or snag some live ones--unfortunately, I don't know of any place right now.
