    thanks, i dont know how i missed that thread.

    harold, as you know i fish tidal rivers, the delta, and the bay prolly 85% of the time. but, i dont allways target cats.

    in our delta, what i have noticed is that if we have enough fresh water (that is important beyond belief!) i catch more cats on a falling tide. dont really know why. i have cought blues as far south as north pass below the i-10 bayway. a buddy of mine cought a 34#er in devils cut in between the causeway and bayway back in march. also on a falling tide.

    other fish, such as flounder, i have better luck at high tide. reds i like a falling tide. specks, if you can find them, seem to bite reguardless. if you can find them. bass, i dunno i think it depends more on time of day and water temp.

    but, as for cats on the delta, i have better luck on a falling tide.

    neap tide or slack tide is a almost a complete waste of time for any species.
