I went to a local baitshop and bought some of the Green Label Herring. These things really work great. At least they do on channels. I may have to try them in the Ohio to see if they attract blues too. I had two poles in the water and could barely get one fish of before the other pole went down. I also think the price is very reasonable. You get 12 fish 6-7" inches in length. I was able to get about 3 cuts out of on fish. They do have a pack with larger herring in them.
