    Don't you folks have a moratorium on herring fishing down there?

    Dogfish I don't think so I think that is for a different kind of herring. Has anyone heard of any herring reports lately?

    Thanks for the info guys I might start looking for herring in the inlets after the noreaster and things settle down. The back bays are cold yet too cold for consistent bass. Hoping the 3rd week of march will be the ticket.

    Hey all I was wondering if you or anyone you know is getting herring. I read some reports about them getting them in long island and thought they might be here too. Also just a little confused. The herring fishing is closed so does that mean we can't fish for the winter herring too? Aren't they a different species? thanks

    They have shown up in the sound and not just one but quite a few locations. I would be surprised if you folks are not seeing them as well. Try incoming tide at the end of day with sabiki rigs.

    Was out this afternoon looking. Quite a few out fishing. Didn't see a herring or fish caught in 15 mile space of shoreline, inlet included. Maybe soon but they weren't there today.

    You're right on the $$. They just showed up in RB. Have to be on a dock or pier to catch. Sea herring. The old guys are catching ok. Ask dark he knows some of them too. May give it a try this weekend.

    A fair amount of Bass showed up in SNJ back bays and someone I know actually got a teen fish which did have 2 Intact herring inside. Most fish were slot sized but footballs so I dod suspect they followed small patches of herring in.
