I found the same thing in the Roundout. I was there last Tuesday and caught fist herring on Sabiki w/in 5min. As I was rigging up second pole line was running on the first. 28" 15 lbs, first of season. 2 hours before high tide. Fishing day was done in 20 min.
Tried yesterday as tide was going out and nothing. They herring seem to prefer Sabiki with red bead.
