Default Cooking and eating eel

Curious if anyone around the area have cooked and eaten eel caught in local Panhandle/S. Ala. rivers. Have been looking at such on YouTube and can't make up my mind to try it or not. What has been your experience?

When I was a kid we fried some one night on the river bank. The more I chewed it the more it swelled up. Could not get it down. The taste was not bad though

Then there's this style, Unagi. Basically it's filleted, grilled, steamed and grilled again. The sauce is like a teriyaki sauce.

My buddy is from Germany and he has eaten eels out of the rivers and creeks around here. He says they are good. Gonna go eel trapping up on the Tenn. River when I get set up. Should be more than I can handle considering nobody eats them up that way. Smoked is the way to go... He smoked his on his grill.

From what all I have been reading smoking seems to be the best way to cook them. I don't like boiled fish Reminds me of when I lived in Maine and all that boiled stuff New Englanders cook....hardly any taste. I like Southern and Cajun taste.

Dressing one out does not seem to be a problem. My problem is getting past the dang things looking like a snake and I ain't going to eat a snake....period !

Have also read they are decent catfish bait. That may be what I end up doing with the next one I catch. But I'm still tempted to cook one
