Bored, Herring?

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

To be honest Winter has me a bit stir crazy and I want to cast a line or two. Has anybody had experience throwing sabikki rigs from shore to jig up some herring? With the warm weather this week I’d like to get out there and give it a shot. Any advice on structure, tide timing, etc. would be much appreciated.

Don’t know where you are but in Long Island they came and gone couple months back ... freshwater or find some brackish spots and look for the elusive white perch

Just a guess here.

 

Backbay, shallow, rocky, not sandy,  afternoons.  Rising tide.

 

Bait fish find much more to eat on the rocks. Small aquatic insects.

 

Hudson River spawn they love man made rocky areas like alongside railroad tracks.

 

Shallow water and afternoon is the water temp and light.  Sunny day would help too.

Heard some rumors that there are still a couple around in the eastern south shore bays
