Fish the High Tide

The high tide gives anglers tons of options for targeting snook.  Remember, moving water triggers them to feed so try to get out there a couple of hours before or after the high tide peaks to experience the great fishing during the higher water levels.  Some of the areas that anglers target during the high tide are mangrove-lined shorelines, backwater flats, docks, tidal creeks, bridges and the passes.  You have so many areas to fish during the high tide that it can actually be overwhelming at times because you may end up second-guessing yourself if you aren’t catching any fish.  The key is to have numerous spots that hold snook within a short boat ride of each other, so you can fish multiple spots during the tidal changes near high tide.
