Fish an Outgoing Tide

A falling tide can be very productive, especially if you are fishing from the peak of the high tide to the first couple of hours during the falling tide.  The high water gives sheepshead a chance to feed on all of the encrusted pilings found around docks, bridges and piers.  As the water levels approach low tide, fishing can still be productive on the flats and you can even find some tailing sheepshead mixed in with the tailing redfish.
