Just wondering what people have to say about herring. We were out in front of 21st the last couple of days and caught cohos, smelt, and herring. I'd never caught herring before. They are a pretty neat looking fish and are fun fighters. I have seen them offered in area restaurants but haven't ever kept any myself. Are they a desireable fish to keep for your own table? There seemed to be groups of them cruising through and my nephew figured them out and landed a bunch. I was a little behind the curve.

You'll get a mixed bag out there of herring and whitefish.

You can smoke both. Whitefish are good pan fried too.

If the fish you caught have a mouth under the top lip and short jaw its a whitefish. Herring will have a jaw same length as the top lip. Depending on where your from herring get lumped in with cisco but that not right. There is a difference between the two.

Whitefish or Herring well to me they are fish and fun to catch.. I have been on the phone about what is what and how do you tell them apart well said frank I do not keep that many fish. So if you are out and catch some of these fish take a good look and see if you can tell who is who. I do now they are fun to catch and it beats siten at home wondering if the guys are catching fish out there. I have never met one I did not like to catch grin.gif.
