Default Rising for Falling Tide on the grass flats?

What do you all like better? I have found the falling tide actually better. about 2 hours up to 30 mins before high tide seems to be best for me.

What are you all finding?

My opinion... on a rising tide, the reds come in closer to shore esp around reeds... on a falling tide, the trout line the edges of the flats. I like both; as long as the water is moving, I'm happy

+1 on moving water, but I definitely like a falling tide for Redfish.

Moving water for sure but in my experience, a falling tide meant loose grass in the water. Weedless rig time and forget topwaters.
It is especially horrible at PSJ Bay, there's the wide blade seagrass growing there.
