    What do people do with the herring they catch in the James? I caught a few in April last year and turned them back into the water. If you eat them any cooking ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

    Best catfish bait you can get. Keep them next time you catch some and try them you will be glad you did.

    I agree, they are great for catfish.

    I used herring filets today and tore them up.. not as messy and the cats just love them.
