That's the one!!! Scared the livin' hell out of me when it opened its mouth!!!
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...
