    Are you talking about using herring as bait for halibut or salmon?

    If halibut, are you using a J hook or a circle hook? If using a circle hook, I like a single hook in the middle of the fish wrapped through it. With J hooks you can use two hooks, one through the head, one towards the tail. I like 14/0 to 16/0.

    Now if you're talking about trolling salmon behind a flasher for kings, I'd say two J hooks 8/0 to 10/0.
