Default Male herring female herring

Does anybody know how to differentiate between a male and female herring. I know that I can squeeze them to see if eggs or sperm comes out, but in mid April when the water is still cold not sure if eggs are ready or if males are spewing all over the place seems like that isht is all over my hands later in the run. Is there anything visual that differs.

Good question. I'm curious about this myself. I know as a general rule that the females run bigger and there are much more males than females.

Yes exactly, the males are smaller and Females will arrive just after the males
