I am going down to Garibaldi to fish the pond early in the morning. :meme:

I live in Portland. Where can I find some good herring? Last trip out, the herring I bought smelled freezer burnt and was very soft. :shrug:

If I cannot find some good herring, does brining them make them workable?:help:

Dixiefisher and I used similar setups on Sunday out of Astoria with the exception of bait. He used the blue/silver coyote spoon and I used small herring and anchovies. His pole had probably 30% more take downs than mine. Some because of the time it takes to bait and deploy herring where he was able to keep his spoon wet. That spoon also caught the big fish of our day (he let me reel it in).

Skip the bait and go with the spoons.

Don't forget Tillamook Bait ... call ahead to reserve if you're worried about running out. The number is on the front page of Ifish ... in the sponsor list!
