Queenfish

Hmmm
Just realized with a plentiful selection of bait. Iíve never caught a halibut off a kayak using herring. Actually never caught a herring while on a kayak. Got bait?

Lizardfish is better than most baits. In par with mackerel and smelt.

True herring die immediately in the tank. You think great a bunch of sardines Im good, then they die and you realize you had 1 sardine and 20 herring. Edit:Herring are blue tinted sardines at first glance and dead blue sardines in the tank.
Edit 2: flat iron herring (sardinas) Ive also picked up off DP are super hardy. Drag them all day.
Queenfish are croakers.

I think I may have gotten my bait mixed up as I was referring to white croakers as herring. Thanks.

I think Herring, tomcod and white croaker are the same.

Then again I could be wrong.

They arent.
A white croaker (tomcod) looks like a yellowfin croaker in body shape and downturned mouth but w/o the yellow fins. Queenfish have an underbite (longer lower jaw) and do "look" like an atlantic herring a bit but are also croakers like white sea bass are.

For bait you can use flyingfish for WSB, rockfish for yellowtail, and yellowtail for marlin. As long as it is legal to keep in number and size you can bait it. Queenfish are good bait.

Its funny how history repeats. I was posting this stuff long ago too. I once got a white croaker a whitefish and a (short) white seabass in the same day off Laguna. Woo.
