    I think that would depend on the area you are wanting to fish. It also depends on the species of fish you are targeting. In texas I belive some of the shallow bays are best at low tide were you can do some sight fishing for reds. High tide brings in the bait fish and will usually have trout and spanish Mackeral chasing them. Sorry if I couldnt be of more help, I'm just learning how to fish salt water.

    From the perspective of fishing marshes I'd have to say a falling tide. We have at most a 1.85 ' tide range unless there are other factors such as wind pushing water into the canes or cordgrass. When the tide changes water begins pouring out of "runouts" into bayous or canals. Predatory fish hang around runout points waiting for an opportunist meal. Same principle when the large canals or ponds empty into larger lakes or bays. In this case -trout are hanging out a little farther out for shrimp-minnows or a nice plastic bait.

    Incoming tides seem to have the fish scattered before moving back into the inner ponds-cuts with the water movement. Either way moving water is good so we follow the tides charts closely for whatever we're fishing in.
