Dont know about New York, but here in NH the end of the month (Full Moon) is key. End of June for instance, the fishing is KILLER out in the marsh on both sides of the tide at night. A 43 inchah was hauled in last June on the incoming at 1am. Wickid awesome fashin' Last week in June is always a rippah!

Chin: This applies to the shore. It all depends on where you fish. If there is deep water near where you fish dead low can work . I fish as a rule the top of the tide. 2 hours before the high and two hours after. An evening high tide is premium. So is an early morning high. A day time high tide can be more productive if its an overcast or snotty day.
I have some spots for the low tide from shore. Both are near deep dropoffs. And another is in quiet shallow harbor.

Default Night fishing

Well, the tide is 10:12 AM and 10:24 PM on sunday. Sounds like I should try at night. From my previous trips to this spot it seemed to be dependent upon the tide (2-3 hours after tide best). Never really fished it much past dark b/c it's a shady area, but if I can get some other guys to come I may try the night thing. I should carry a big hunting type knife on my waiste like Briggs (that'll make me look tough)and carry a bag full of too much junk so I have plenty of junk to throw at the weirdos and drug addicts that call my spot home if they want to steel the 30 bucks i carry in my wallet--6 oz sinkers ought to sting when expertly power casted at the head.

Chin I may be going Sunday evening high as well. If you want to take the ferry to SI Ill pick you up and take you to a spot. Maybe we'll meet up with Zim. I may go the rest of this week. AC water temp is now 46. The back bays should be warmer. Rain for tonight and tomorrow night expected. Still may catch the evening tides. Long drive for me but if you dont put your time in you dont catch fish. Raingears ready.

The best tides are always the Lagtides. this is two hours before and after ALL tides. My most favorite time to fish is late night into early morning just before the sun rises. fishing the tide when the sun goes down aint bad either...but that late night, all is quiet, tide in the nighttime, is prime time for me...

This Saturday...i'll be fishing from 1:00pm, until about 10pm. so i have the daytime to throw everything i own in the water, and when that sun dives, i'll switch right over to clambellies and kill um. (i hope)

next saturday night is much better and i will be hardcoring it all night long... i'll be starting at around 7pm and the tide will be changing over at about midnight...that to me is gold. It definetly changes with location though so keep your eyes open for other reports.

In the spring I'm so busy I just try to get out and fish whenever. But once the summer comes especially in the dog days of summer my favorite time to fish is when the tides match up best with evening and false dawn. I'll head out when the lifeguards head in at 5 fish till 10 or 11 sleep then head back out before the sun comes up around 4:30 5 oclock. But i always leave a little time for surfing before the guards are back out. 8)

Don't know about where you're at, however the best blitzes I've ever seen have been at night. Just my opinion.....
