Eel Skin Lures…a secret weapon quietly used by sharpies for decades to catch trophy Striped Bass along the Northeast coast.
At Cow Harbor Bait & Tackle, we hand select eels for a specific dimension to be used on a large variety of plugs whether they are wood or plastic.
We are the only shop in the USA offering these select grade skins for sale to fisherman & we ship anywhere in the USA.
Our eels are graded, skinned & prepared using our “secret” brine method to be fished or stored for years in vacuum sealed bags for odorless storage in your freezer.
All eel skins are measured by width in front of the anal vent & fitted on the stated plug prior to shipping. The existing anal vent is to be used at the belly swivel. Larger plugs can tear a skin if improperly sized.
Tail length can vary so if your looking for a particular tail length, please call the shop.
Our eel skins are preserved in a refrigerated salt water brine solution, so it is very important to rinse them and let sit for several minutes prior to rigging your plugs. This allows the skins to re hydrate and become softer for proper rigging.
Please note: If you tear a brine skin while DYI rigging, there is no free replacement included in purchase.
