Default What tide do people general have the best luck during?

Do people have better luck with the incoming or out going tide? It seems dead tide seems to be really slow going.

The rule of thumb is usually 2 hours before...2 hours after high tide. I have had most of my luck on the outgoing tide...

I'm fairly new to striper fishing, but have been told by alot of guys that outgoing tide is the best. But on the other hand I know a few that catch them anytime. I would have to say just fish when you can.

I have found that it isn't the specific tide but rather the moving water resulting from the tide .... so it could be rising to or falling from a high tide or falling to or rising from a low tide

it's just the moving water versus slack tide

Slack tide, low or high sucks.

I personally prefer the out going tide, but anytime you can get out is a good one.

I like outgoing tide. Slack tide sucks. But it's a good time to get some lunch or a snack!

Just wanna say, that the spot really determines what tide is best.
Some spots are productive at high some at low, it varries and differs. But as i said, anytime to get out is a good time to fish.

The biggest fish I ever caught came during a slack tide. All tides are better than work.

great question guy , one that i have been asking for years and never get the same answer. let me put in my 2 cents. i have been doing this striper fishing for a good number of years and most guys where i fish will tell you outgoing tide is the best . well i have caught them on both tides and just a few years ago when i was fishing a incoming tide my fish finder blacked out with fish on the screen . never had that happen before that and never after that but i was told by guys that itdoes happen i was fishing alone that day and had 2 poles in the water and a fish on each pole . so to answer your question about tides you pick doesnt seem to matter for us but regardless you will not catch fish on either tide if they not there to catch . we have caught fish on a out going tide for a couple hours straight we left early that day are arms couldnt take it anymore. that was our best time on the river but that doesnt happen quite enough . good luck and just put in your time and you will score. pawdaddy
