well...now that i know there are herring in nosbonsing can anyone tell me how to target them? now im excited to try and get another. any suggestions would be great. I believe they are generally deep and have small mouths so smaller presentations would be better. any other ideas?

thanks!

i have always caught them with in 5 feet of bottom either with set line or small jigging spoon tipped with a minnow,the odd times we have marked fish about have way down from bottom and dropped single minnows down and caught them also

Got lots with a hammerd silver 2 inch Williams up there... they will chase it up from near bottom and hit anywhere.

Tip with a minnow head and you will connect with some if they are around

They can be pretty well anywhere and are usually suspended - sometimes even right under the ice. Been seeing a fair # in 12-20ft zone this year. They react well to aggressive jigging with very short pauses. Pause for too long and they seem to lose interest.

Caught them just off the bottom . Using a sliver spoon tipped with minnow. If you are use g a fish finder you can actual see them following the bait up from the bottom. Tight lines.

Have done really well for them on Huron this year, i have been fishing 40FOW and mark them anywhere from 10' off of bottom to 10' below the ice. That being said most of the fish i have caught this year have been suspended about 20-25' down and believe it or not been smashing them on the 10g vibrato fished naked. The buckshot in any color works. What i have been doing is a technique i like to call yo-yoing these fish are active and the speed of light lol. I real up get the fish engaged, they will follow 9/10 times all the way to the ice. If they don't hit i drop it past them,when they catch up i reel up past them and repeat the process. This infuriates them and they will usually eat. Catching 15-18" fish too so don't be scared to use a fair sized bait.

Hope this helps!
