Default Herring size

I seem to be having a difficult time this year and I see that lots are catching in the places I fish. I know my tackle setup is right so, is my herring just too big? I've been using the smallest ones I can find yet still not getting any runs. Any suggestions from those doing well this year?

If others are catching and you're doing exactly the same thing idk what to tell you. I can assure you that your herring is not too big.

I agree with Bub. I like the smaller ones but only because the smaller fish can get them in their mouths easier. Essentially though you can't get a herring that's too big for an adult striper. Were the other people hooking their herring the same way as you?

I run the hook through the nostrils. Or up through the mouth and out behind the bone. I also try to not lose any scales. I'm drifting the channel edges where I see activity. I've also anchored quite a bit this year but like to drift to cover more area. I appreciate the insights.

Everything you mentioned sounds good to me. Just keep at it. Maybe it's just a "right place at the right time" kind of thing.
