Whatever design you go with, I would built it with mesh sides to prevent damage to the bait... A simple design would be a PVC frame wrapped with mesh.

Go to YouTube and look up a guy by the name of ziffyland. He has a video on how to make a floating herring pen.

I bought one from RiverBasin a few years ago.... and i don't use it since i sold the big boat.

Shoot me a pm if you have any interest... i paid $75 or so and only used it one season and will sell it for a reasonable offer.

thanks guys, i actually ended up making one out of a wire frame folding mesh laundry bag. Just zip tied a noodle around the top crimped a few split shots around the bottom ring and viola....the 6$ herring pen was born!

Cant wait to find some herring to put in it to test it out
