Default Most productive tide to fish?

Just wondering which tide everybody finds most productive? I've had decent luck just after high tide, but I only make it down a couple weeks a year, so not much of a sample size.

Depends on the location, but I like the falling tide.

I agree with Realtor. Depends on location. The spot I've been catching trout lately only produces consistently on a falling tide. Later in the year I'll find a few flounder there on a specific bank, but again, only on the falling tide.

At 3 mile I have had the best luck on an incoming tide.

Other places, I don't care that much as long as there is tide movement.

Falling tide is going to be after the high tide peaks and begins to flow back out to its source. Incoming tide would be coming towards the shore (high tide). Basically. Right gents?

Falling.

The bait is washed out of shallow areas, and the fish learn that when the water flows in the falling direction, they find the most food, and are the most aggressive.

IMHO
Fielro and TeaSea like this.
