Herring make a run up rivers in the Spring. Some folks use small jigs. Some use a cast net. Some use a wire net and pole. Check with Fish and Wildlife Laws. Fish and WIldlife Law Enforcement is strict on how many herring you harvest and how big your cast net is. I would love to throw a herring like plug to entice a cow striper. Tight Lines.

get a sabiki rig, a 00 (Double Zero) dodger and a 2 ounce sinker.

Then go to a pier by you and jig on the top of the outgoing tides and fish through it.

Thats herring fishing...

What you will catch are Atlantic herring and you can keep as many as you want.

There are two other species of herring but you will not see them till March and you probably wont catch them. They are Blueback Herring and Alewife also known as river herring. You are not allowed to posses any of them.

Atlantic Herring-


Blueback Herring-


Alewife-

I had some Mustad size 10 fly hooks, those would work? I tied some flash and a little yellow foam on them
