Need Help with Pickled Herring Recipe

I am making pickled herring from salted herring and I cannot get a real fishy taste out of the salted herring...Have soaked in water for up to two days (which makes the herring too soft, no texture), have soaked less time, have soaked in milk and still cannot remove the off taste...Does anyone have any ideas on what to do to solve this problem? Appreciate your feedback, RJ
