Get the live herring on the bottom with a 2 or 3 foot leader and an egg or some type of sliding sinker. Let them run in free spool for a bit then set the hook!

It seems like early in the year i get a lot of runs and don't come tight on the fish ... in a few days doing the same thing i stay hooked up so i don't know if it is small fish not inhaling the herring like the big ones do or in the colder water the fish feed less aggressively.

We have always fished our live herring exactly the same as chunk. Slide weight set up with swivel, leader and circle hook. Might have to use a little more weight for the liver bait.

Some guys like to hook through head and others through back, it's just a preference thing.


Good luck
