I wanted to try this year. I have no idea about it. So I need to learn about eveything there is to know
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.
