Um....I live in Arlington Heights...and on Higgins and Arlington Heights Rd is my favorite bait shop. Lee's Bait and Tackle. John Lee has packages of frozen Herring that he says are super for catching big catfish. His number @ the store is 847-593-6424. I'm gonna try herring on the Fox river Friday night and see what happens.....

When fishing the Illinois below Starved Rock I always throw out small jig with a minnow right behind the boat in an effort to catch River Herring. They hit hard and fight like little tarpon. They make excellent cut bait for cats on the Illinois. I think they are a bit tougher than the shad.
Since you have to catch them on hook and line they are not as easy to obtain as shad with a throw net but I believe they are worth the effort.
