Fish the High Tide

The high tide offers better fishing on the grass flats and in the tidal creeks.  Spotted sea trout will move into these shallow water areas during a high tide to feed on small crustaceans, shrimp and bait fish.  You can usually find plenty of sea trout in some of the same places as redfish, so don’t be surprised if you hook into a big bull redfish while fishing for sea trout during the high tide.  Fishing in high water at the end of an incoming tide or at the beginning of an outgoing tide will both be productive.  Moving water is key, so make sure to get out there during a tidal change.
