i've used a small, 1/2 ounce trolling weight, about two feet of mono leader, and a tiny bunker spoon on the end. cast and retrieve on ultra-light tackle

A 1/4 ounce-1 ounce bucktail jig is good to use.

I've caught holdover bass on the jig.

It's fun on the ultra light tackle. Grin

I have been using smaller bucktails at the Barnagat Inlet.  Went out a couple of times but no luck.  I had something on last week but I could feel the head shake and then a dead line the line snapped at the dropper loop.  I was using a white bucktail tipped with a white grub and a red and white teaser.

I was thinking of going out tomorrow as I have to be there to take pictures for a project I am working on.

if your intrested is accumulating herring as bait for stripers,and not hook and lining them,then you might want to make a herring basket.

you can build the frame out of various materials, then wrap it with chicken wire leaving one end opened like a barrel.
attach a long handle and paint the whole thing black.

find a small creek where the herring/shad are moving upstream concentrating on where it narrows, or where they may potentially bunch up.   drop the basket in facing the open end down stream.  when the hering/shad move up stream, they'll enter the backet and you'll feel them hitting th netting.  when you know they're in, just lift the basket opened end first.

another trick to catching the herring in  the backet is to live line one, then throw him back in down stream.  reel him in slow towards the basket.  the other shad/ herring will follow him.  let some slack in the line so he swims in.   when the others follow him into the trap, scoop em up.

sabaki rigs size 6 or 8. you will clean up on herring, catch 4 at a ti me. small weight and a slow bounce. works like a charm.
