Herring showing up in some places despite shortage
Despite a shortage of herring, sports fishermen continue to bait their hooks. Though some Juneau store managers said they still aren't getting more than a "trickle" of bait herring from distributors, fishing boats still troll the water off North Douglas and along the Breadline.
