Tried shop vac, no dice. Minnow trap has potential. I'll be eelin twice a week now til November so with the guys I fish with, I doubt they'll be the last two down there. Maybe they'll breed and my bilge will turn into a live well. I'll dEEL with it at the end of the season. 

Did you try one of those attatchments on the hose?  I've got one that looks like a loooong funnel....cant imagine you couldn't reach it if you could see it

I have a homemade attachment I use to clean the dryer duct at my shop, stuck it up and turned it on, but didn't pull anything out but scrap. Haven't seen em. Regardless, every trip since they got down there has been successful so I'm not gonna attribute my great captaining and fishing ability to a superstition...but I'm not going to pursue their excavation either.

To hell with the eels, I'd fix the scuppers that drain into the bilge

nothing wrong with em, just size and location. Apparently a screen insert is in order when eels are aboard. It's a bayliner trophy so a lot of design elements have been left to question.
