Talking Re: Herring report

I Know, I use 4x4 scap nets on the river. You can't use those in the creeks, that's what I meant by headwaters. Can't net them but the headwaters of tidal creeks is the best bet to find em. A stoolie will def help confirm if there in if so, I start jiggin!!

Threw a couple different stoolies south of Saugerties today, also drowned a worm. No bass, and I couldn't see any herring although visibility was low. I tried casting along the shore and out while throwing the stoolie. Does anybody have any tips for a newb when it comes to luring herring to your net? It could be possible that they just weren't in my area but I know I'm not so skilled...yet.

Were you dip netting or scap netting? Scap nets are so much better specially when herring are tough to get. Most of my early herring I catch I don't usually see following. Between them hangin farther back and deeper, and the water just not being as clear I get most blind swiping. Instead of doin loops waitin to see one. I cast out repeatedly and run the stoolie straight to the net and do a pull everytime. You'd be amazed how many herring you'll catch that you never knew were there. Often ill even run the stoolie almost through the net when its tough and end up catching herring that were hangin a few feet back. White or chartruese stoolie is best in these water conditions.

If they are around you'll def see them, some hump your stoolie all the way in LOL.
Getting them in the net takes some practice. Need to lure them into net, don't swipe at them with net. They are tough sometimes. Exspecially in dirty water.

Does anybody have better luck with Chartruese stoolie? I only have had luck with pearl or silver/black. I was told the Chartruese works better in murky water.....When the herring are here it isn't to hard to stoolie them. You'll be amazed at how many are actually out there!!

I like to use chartruese sabiki rig colors... I try and have fun with it... Take an ultralight spinning rod, put a good amount of weight at the end of the sabiki, and I cast it. Crank it in kinda like you would a popper or even a spinner bait. The casting keeps it fun, you can cover a lot of water, and you can catch them 2 or 3 at a time and have a nice battle cranking them in!
