Default Anchor or drift herring?

I'm going to fish with herring for the first time on Saturday, does it work best to drift or anchor and drop the bait to the bottom? Thanks.

Depends, Imo river conditions dictate what the most productive approach will b at any given time, personally I don't like anchoring at slack or incoming tide, hard to keep boat in the same position lines tend to get all #%cked up, but either way u want your bait as close to the bottom for the bigger fish

If your anchored and chunking, do you use same rig as drifting worms but using a fish finder slider and keep weight as close to bottom or weight to bottom and use a float to suspend chunk.
