Default Ever do any good on a neap tide?

The tides look like crap this weekend but I've got my new light setup complete and want to try it out. I have never had much luck during these slack tides. Maybe I need to look in different places than my usual spots. Plan on going over to Alabama and trying it there. Anybody ever killed any during a neap tide?

I havn't had any luck with neep tides eaither, but I am certain you will not catch any fish if you don't go.

My best night this year was on a neap tide and I agree even if I don't do any good I usually see something that makes it better than staying home and watching tv.

I do pretty good on neap tides. But I stay out of areas that usually have a lit of current.

I've done real good on a neap and I've not done so good. However If the wind is good and the waters good I'll go on a neap.
I try and hit places where on a normal tide the water is ripeing to hard to work doesn't alway pay off but you won't know unless you look.

BTW we have a full moon too. Hopefully the clouds will move in and block some of the moon.

I've got my stuff loaded up and am gonna try it anyway. I've been wanting to look around over in Alabama anyway and I have the house to myself so I'm gonna go for a while and see if I can find any. I have been wanting to try out my new 400 watt HPS lights with the Lumatek electronic ballasts.
