I have not fished for weeks because of work and weather so i snuck out today before the rain forecasted for tomorrow Sunday. The water around Dana Point was murky green and around 59 degrees. Kind of like ideal condition for WSB. Metered fish but they we’re not interested with dead squid. I was bait fishing and caught a couple of these curious looking ones so i took a picture and matched it as a Pacific Herring. It looks like a bigger sardine (7 inches) but does not have the row of spots along the lateral line. Scales are very delicate like anchovies, comes right off. It is a first for me and thought i share this with BD readers to find out how often does everyone come across these P Herrings locally?
