Do you still enjoy herring? I find that my taste for herring has diminished somewhat.

Cellar it!
I've smoked 30+ pounds of salmon in a day in the past. Stored it in Mason jars, then put it in the pantry as opposed to the cellar.
I keep my herring in the tins as opposed to moving it into jars. Again, the pantry not the cellar. The cellar is where I store body parts and I'm scared of cross-flavoring if I keep the fish down there also.

My experience with herring was in Amsterdam when it came into legal season in the spring and was available in restaurants and on the street and we enjoyed it for more than several meals. It was fresh and light and perfection. When it's good, it's sublime.

My herring usually remains unaffected until around the 8 to 9 lb mark...then it starts to go along with the rest of my senses.

Here in Texas, it's all about the brisket.
Six pounds in a day is a good warm up exercise...

Smoked Lake Trout at Russ Kendall's in Knife River MN, on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Don't forget to grab a sleeve of saltines.

Herring are awesome. They're about to start spawning on the west coast and you guys are getting me fired up. I'll be out there soon yarding 'em in with my throw net and filling my ice chest with grade A+ halibut, rockfish, and lingcod bait as well as keeping enough for at least a half dozen quart jars of pickled fillets. It's one of my favorite winter traditions. Here's a link to the recipe I use. https://www.monkeyfacenews.com/my-blog/2010/12/herring-herring-herring.html

Mortar and pestle it and use it for snuff!
Seriously, herring is good. Smoked herring is good. I even like pickled herring. I draw the line at lutefisk...
