I did a search and only came up with text.  Does anyone have a link or pictures of eel rigging or rigged eels done with sash chain?  Maybe @DZ or @SC can step in to help.  Thanks!

I never used it (many reasons) but it's pictured in many older bass books

Thank you, I was attempting to explain it to someone, but wanted a picture to support my description.

I remember using these in the CCC about 50-60 years ago. My Dad made them but they were for ell skins, not a whole eel. We rigged whole eel in a variety of ways either weighted or unweighted. Dad used brass sash chain attached to a piece of half inch  brass pipe cut on an angle. I remember some were made of SS bead chain but they were store bought. The hallow pipe would keep the skin inflated, the current did the rest. I had some of these around and will take a look, no promises, but I will post if I can find one. Probably weighed about 4 oz. Penn squider, 36# nylon line, split bamboo rods.... not for the meek.

I have some that we used rigged on Tony Acetta Pet Spoons.  I’ll look around for the files and post them.

Thanks guys!  I’m an old soul and was feeling nostalgic. This stuff is before my time, but I have been exposed to it.  I may even give it a try with the old Squiddah!

I had these out on the garage.  I think they can be used for rigged eels.  Two feel like tin, and one is lead.

I still use sash chain for rigging the TA spoons.  Back in the day we did it this way to prevent bluefish bite offs of the rear hook.

We found the chain allowed more action and also added weight to get deeper than nylon covered wire.

Don't, under ANY circumstances, put a dead eel on one of those! :ph34r:
