Fish an Outgoing Tide

Outgoing tides are good times to fish for spotted sea trout.  Most anglers prefer to fish the beginning of an outgoing tide so they can still take advantage of the high tide.  Spotted sea trout will still be on the flats and back in tidal creeks feeding on small crustaceans, shrimp and bait fish.  As the water continues to fall, the shallower water will push fish off the flats and into the cuts and channels that offer some deeper water near the flats.
