Brining herring

Recommended Posts

Others with more background fishing meat might disagree--so listen to them if so! I believe it's better to filet then brine. You get more salt and color throughout the meat, making the exposed stuff hold up better in the water when you're trolling.

Good luck!

What kind of meat heads are you using? When I use the mini meat heads, the herring is fileted then brined and if I'm using the large meat heads, I then cut the head off the herring and gut it, followed by brining it. I also use the fire brine in assortment of colors and sometimes add some garlic to the mix.

good luck
