I nearly blanked. One small whiting for four hours, then decided to fish for herring. Bam, found them. 36 in 30 minutes.

Blimey!
Seems like those fish are really keeping their heads down.

Well done Neville on those Herring though, they are worth having.
Soused! Mmmm, lovely.

Fried a couple for breakfast with a chilli and lime rub. Smoked some others. Plenty more ways to eat herring!

Nice to see folks getting out at last. Went out Saturday, more of a servicing trip really after nearly 3 months stuck on the mooring. Lots of things needed sorting including a broken gear selector cable. Managed to make a temporary repair and go out for a couple of hours. My mate had 1 dog fish and nothing for me until a half decent Ray on my last drop.

Salar, Herring look nice. What, when, where and how? I wonít tell🤫

How to fish for them: I wrote it up here
Follow the instructions carefully or you a) won't hook them or b) won't land them. They are not like mackerel.
Where:
Daytime - mid water - last year I was catching over Horse Tail area, Saturday they were around Dean Tail. Shoals can be huge, I don't think there is a shortage! They move around like mackerel, you just have to find them. Night time, right on the surface where they follow the plankton they feed on. On Saturday they were about 20 feet down in 70 feet of water towards evening. Hard to miss the shoal:



What a bucket of herring looks like: (note the mauve sheen you never see in the fishmongers)

Herring fishing is a big thing in Scandinavia and northern Europe. The Askari catalogue has special herring promotions.
