View Full Version : Herring in SF Bay

I would like to catch some herring in SF Bay. I know they come to spawn in Dec to Jan. I have never gone after them. This newbee is looking for advice on this matter. What do you use (throw net, hooks, etc.) Where is the best place to go? How do I know when they are in the bay? Only need enough to pickle for personal use. Any help is appreciated.

Candle Stick Park or Oyster Point is where the herring will be around first in December. I only see guys throwing castnet to catch them. You can tell when herring is around by seeing a lot birds working the water and flying above the school of herring.
