i've caught a lot of fish at about 2 hours before and up until the tide slacks at low. definitely some spots where feeding frenzys occur at that time. usually where the river meets the ocean. you could just wade in and scoop up stripers at some places. at high tide there is a lot of water so a lot of room for fish to move around and you can get skunked even when fish are there. fishing narrow rivers or right where river / ocean meet = no escape. if u end up getting just schoolies because they are so thick, try a bigger lure i use a shallow diver, like a black mambo, (if it is night...) or something of that nature and cast it beyond the frenzy and then let it sink below the schoolies to get the bigger fish.
