Re: Fishing Tides In the Delta?

I'm rarely able to fish two days in a row but I do know that the tide pretty much repeats itself every two weeks. What I'm saying is accurate to an hour or two variance. So basically if the tide is low at 8:00AM two weeks later it will be about the same at 8:00AM

19 or 21 sound reasonable to me, but I'm no expert. Check the operating range of your engine to determine if 6100 RMP's is considered high. I will defer to more knowledgeable folks on this board regarding the best prop for your setup.

How long is your boat and what engine horsepower? My 2000 Triton TR19 (18'11") with a 175 Evinrude came with a four blade 25 pitch. I had some issues with chine walking and I wanted a better holeshot and midrange, so I had it worked down to a 23 pitch. Best decision I ever made.
