  1. Thanks everyone, I'll wait for the colder months to come and I'll try for herring then. I'll have to try out Quincy this Nov/Dec and maybe go out again late-winter/early-spring next year, I usually go there a few times every year but haven't had a chance this year. I've actually barely fished for anything during winter, it always seemed too challenging and time consuming but I'll have time this year. If I remember, I'll reply back to this thread of my herring trips to supply my herring report.
  2. I have not. I don't think I've ever seen one. When would be the best time of year to target them?
  3. From my experience, bleach and water, rinse, dry. Then next dish soap and water, rinse, let it dry. When it dries, lightly crumple like 3-5 newspaper pages and place inside the cooler and close it. By the next day, any smell will be gone but you can leave the newspaper there until the next fishing trip. I learned this trick from asking in another site of how to remove the really faint lingering smell from a cooler and it works like a charm.
  4. I've been wanting to try out a few recipes with fresh herring as I haven't had it in a long time. None of the markets and seafood markets near me sell it. I wanted to know if it's something I can catch from shore in MA? Or would it likely be a waste of my time to go out to shore to catch them? Just wanted to get some general feedback before planning a trip out to the coast. I've seen some videos of guys in Long Island and NJ catching them on sabiki/mackerel rigs from the beach during the colder months. To note, I am aware that we also have river herring (alewife and blueback) in MA that are prohibited for fishing and harvesting in any form. I am of course not trying to catch those, trying to catch Clupea harengus.
  5. Looks like the Atlantic silverside (Menidia menidia). I agree with the the other guys that these make a nice fried fish. Similar to fried smelt.
  6. Hey, I mind if I rewrite the Spanish version of this and get back to you? I'm a native speaker and for a few of the terms there I can tell that the translation service struggled with (e.g. the "bass" it translated was the musical instrument, not the fish).
