Can anyone tell me how to rig up with herring in the willamette. I will be trolling. I was going use to a wire spreader, not sure what length does the dropper have to be. I will be trolling the portland harbor area. I was going to use a 4-5ft. leader with a mooching rig & a small flasher between the swivel & the 2 hooks.

We usually use a Fish Flash attached to the spreader with a split ring. Run 4' to 5' leader to Mooching rig. Green or blue label plug cut, with 18" to 24" droper. The amount of Lead varies, Depends on current.

Sturgeon1,

Our herring rigs today were about 4' leader with some bead chain at the top, about 18" lead line.

We were swapping out divers for lead. Diver had one, we got one back bouncing with lead.

We were catching on prawns though but the same setup.

We had spinners on early but got the fish on plain prawn rigs. We were using these new (to me) red Gamakatsu hooks. Not the blood red, electric red with the tip's bare.

I've seen anywhere from 10 to 24 pulls. Most fish in deep water are 15-25 ft. Suggestions??
