    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.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
