    :thumb:Ah.

    Clupea palasii, or Pacific herring.

    don't be afraid, Connor. Herrings are your friends
    they eat plankton and stuff, not fishermen.
    BTW, I'm not that smart. I had to google it to get the genus and species LOL

    now if you want to really see a gape, go catch a sardine!

    If you thought a herring stunk bad, you need to catch a blackmouth. You can conduct your own stink test. By far one of the stinkiest fish in Puget Sound.
    For a fish that stinks that bad, they sure taste great.

    I caught a herring on a chum baby off a local seattle beach last year. They are smelly.

    Blackmouth scent should be made into a manly cologne. The smell of a large blackmouth should not be washed from your hands for at least a couple of days.

    Mmmmm...blackmouth. That isn't stink; that's the finest perfume. Rub a little behind your ears, and you get to go fishing more often...
