Any signs of Herring yet? Been a little cold so I think they may be a little late.

PJ,
we had a couple in the nets two weeks ago on the Maurice, but not nearly as many as this time last year.

We had plenty of gizzard shad which for this area are a precursor of things to come.

Get us 2 weeks of 50+ and we will have them at the main street bridge

Thanks for you reply. Hope they start soon. Wounder if the oil spill will effect them in the river. I seen here when they replaced a wooden bridge years back they would not swim past this bridge the 1st year. You could see oil spots comimg off the new lumber into the water.

How do you guys store your herring... whole? Brined and frozen? Stripped & salted? I have a big freezer in the garage (for the first time in years) and it is all mine.... no Hungry Man dinners, just bait... and I am lookin to stock up.

I freeze what I do not use. Fresh is best. Once its frozen its like any other fresh bate, it gets soft. Then its good crab bate and cat fish.
