Fishing the Slack Tide

Snook fishing becomes very difficult during a slack tide, especially during the day.  Moving water triggers snook into feeding and as soon as the water comes to a standstill, the bite slows down in an instant.  Some anglers will try to fish some of the open water areas around the bridges and in the passes during the slack tide because the wind can help provide some current.  It’s not the same as having moving water during a tidal change, but the moving water from the wind could help to position some bait, which will also make snook more likely to feed.  Most of the experienced anglers will take a break from the fishing during the slack tides because the fishing is usually so poor.
