I wet brined a BUNCH of herring months ago.......Because I am heading to Washington in a few days I took some of it out of the fridge so I can air dry it and vacuum seal it for my trip......IT IS IN GREAT SHAPE.......and once it is dried and vacuum sealed......It will need minimal refrigeration...........VERY happy with the results

Wet brined some clams and mussels to got with the slated herring I still have left for my trip to Trinidad Pier.......Fresh bait is not always available up there and when it is......IT IS DAMN EXPENSIVE

Did you buy one of the brining products? Bought some Pro-Cure brine a couple of years ago, but it's not cheap. If you have your own brining recipe, can you post it? Herring should be showing up soon, and I'd like to brine some as bait for next spring.

I just followed recipes I found on Youtube........Commercial Preps are just to damn expensive.....I DID LEARN......that trying to dye baits with standard food coloring does not work on herring and other fin fish
