EEL Removal ???

Anyone have any tips or tricks without removing all of my rocks, on how to get my snowflake eel out of my tank? He has grown to big for my tank and its time to sell him back to my LFS. I've tried luring him out with food then trying to net him, but he is so **** fast he always gets away.

He is about 3 1/2 ft now and very wide, starting to rearrange my rocks!

I had a similar problem getting my Pacu out of my tank when I decided to resale him due to size matters.

I just bought a heavy duty net, he nearly broke it still, fighting it so much. I don't know what else to advise.

I remember taking out my ol' Pacu. I expected a nice, easy netting. Instead I was immediately soaked from the splashing and my bed (6 feet away) was wet.

what about blocking his first choice of hiding spot when you lure him out?? That way he'll be trying to swim straight to "his spot" and you'll be ready for his confused "uh oh, gotta go somewhere else" pause.
