Opinions on delta tides...

Postby TravisH » Fri Jun 08, 2018 12:14 pm

There’s a couple events this weekend on the Delta and everyone has there opinions on High and Low tides. What’s your opinion when there’s not to much water movement?

To me it doesn't matter what the tides is as I don't know the delta good enough to say "I need to be here at this tide."
I just fish an area that I know and adjust to whatever the tide is.

It's hard to take this question seriously when it feels so much like a commercial.

Pre-fish the delta and find out what tides are producing frequent decent bites and what situation you are fishing. Typically it’s a moving tide. Once you figure out the bite on the tide, follow the tide around the delta, then when it flips to another tide, chase it back. Do this with 15-20 spots in a day, duplicating your pre-fish situation. During times on little to no movement, throw a frog this time of year or punch deeper grass (3-6 feet). Worst comes to worst, drop shot the outside grass line in your favorite areas.

I’m amazed at the Challenge the Delta gives me every year. It’s a constant change. Been out there a long time. Find out what tide your getting your better bites and run that. Sometimes bite windows are small and sometimes there large. Takes constant fishing out there to stay on them. (You are always around them) Changes constantly.
Good luck.

Ive always had more confidence fishing the high tide. I really like an early morning high tide best. I have the least confidence with a mid day low tide.

Same here, it's much easier to crank a high tide. Back in the day when there were some good solid weedlines I would crank the outside of the weedline keeping my bait in the strike zone 90% of the time. I would target the dead low tide for this fishing so I could see the weedline.
