I recomend you pick up a Okuma 65 baitrunner. Ive had the avenger for close to 5 years now and i love it. Just clean it b4 and after the season. They go for around $60 if I remember correctly. WellIworth it. As for herring... The jig doesnt always fly. Have you tried a scap or gill net? When I get out at some redic hour b4 light I cant get them to follow my stoolie in so I have been throwing out 10-15' of my gill net. Just enough to get my poles in the water and a few in the live well for the morning bite. Tight lines to you.
