Default Incoming or outgoing. What do you feel is better?

Which do you think is better? I haven't had much luck either way, so I just wondering what everyone prefers.

Thanks.
Thanks

Although it's not as well kept recently has it has been in the past, I have a journal in which I track EVERY striper trip. It goes back a good 10 years and for me the outgoing tide has produced the most fish. My biggest to date which I just caught this year was also on the outgoing tide.

Year after year it seems to change for me , still can't say one is better than the other. Heck I used to hate low slack, than 2 years ago we pounded on them a few trips at low slack. Go figure ??

All that being said ... this year outgoing has been very good to me.

UI agree with Brian. Over the 16 years that I've been striper fishing it seems to be even give or take a few. I think location plays more of a factor.

This year outgoing has been producing more for me also

By far this year the last 1/3 of outgoing tide has seriously turned on the bite. I watched HUGE school in Newburgh Bay just watch my bait then suddenly turn on after 2 hours then the tide hit the last 1/3.

Where are you fishing where the last 1/3 (or 2hr) is the best fishing. Most shore spots will be unfishable (rocks, piers, marshes)

Possibly not piers, although youll be pulling up a fish a long way.

I did read that some beaches with more or a gradual slope will fish best during low tide....

I only ask, not to be argumentative, but because due to work ir other reasons i miss the period aroun the incoming/high tide

I did good today. I got a few hits, and landed 2. It was nice to finally get some action. It was the outgoing too! LOL

8/0 Gamakatsu inline circle hooks. Things are so sharp it's ridiculous. I feel alot of missed fish are small stripers that can't fit the bait in their mouths.

Marlboro to Newburgh is where the bite is way better last 1/3 of outgoing.

Best tide is the one that puts fish on the linewhen the water takes on a strange mixed look and surface is erratic, this past week the change was very short

Confirmed again all weekend...............fish bite LIT up the last 1/3 of the ebb tide into slack tide. Incoming did produce some fish but a fraction of the bottom of outgoing. I watched the fish hunker on the bottom of the channel and then suddenly start coming up to feed when the tide was right.
