Default Tides and gigging question

So when yall go gigging do u look up the tide chart and decide when to go or just random whenever. Does tide mean anything good or bad for flatties?

I prefer a couple hours before high tide well into low-tide. I target the drop offs about an hour or so after the tide has turned out. But anytime you can go is good when gigging. They like to lay in wait on the edges of the drop-offs, to ambush prey as the tide carries them out.

no problem. on the inter-coastal, after the tide has turned out, and you're not seeing flatties near the shoreline, move out to where the bank starts dropping off. It'll mostly be a gradual drop, but they'll lay right at that drop edge on down about 3', watching what comes over that crest. g/l

I prefer a rising tide But as long as it's moving I'll go rising or falling. Tidal movement is a must.
