So here is my plan: And would like everyone to tell me if I am crazy or not. I plan to go to P.C. this weekend. Instead of throwing spinners or bobber fishing with eggs, I thought I would try something different: Like using a spreader with about a 2 oz. cannonball weight 2 or 3 foot leader mooching rig with a plug cut herring cast it out from the bank and kind of troll it back slowing letting it spin. What do you guys and gals think. Waste of time or not?
Any advice? thanks everyone.

There is a better method for doing that called jigging or mooching. Use whole green or blue labes and about 1 oz mooching weight, and your herring on about 18" of leader. Chcuk that sucker out as far as you can and let it sink . You lift and drop the weight about 2 ft causing the herring to flutter and spin. Its very effective. The point by the old boat ramp is good for that, not so much by the bridge, works great on the salmon river in spots as well.

I think he missed the "L" button. Blue/Green/Black lable herring are different (types?) of herring.

different color label, different size. Packaged herring are sized and use label
color to differentiate those sizes. Red label
herring are small with green, blue, purple and
black increasing in size respectively.
