The Best Tides For Redfish, Snook, And Speckled Trout [Flats, Bays, & Creeks]

Do you want to know the absolute best tides for redfish, snook, and trout are for the flats, bays, and creeks?

If yes, this video tutorial below will show you the #1 factor to keep in mind when planning your next inshore fishing trip.

Plus, you’ll learn about the two most common mistakes anglers make that significantly decreases their odds of success when it comes to fishing the different tides.

And as you’ll see towards the end of the video, there are some tactics that can be used to catch inshore slams (redfish, trout, snook, flounder) even when fishing “bad” stages of the tide cycle.

The red section of this tide graph is technically a bad time to fish as you’ll see in the video below.

But even during those “bad” tidal stages, you can still have some great fish catching if you know how to roll together all of the various factors and put yourself at the right spot for the given conditions.

In fact, you’ll see a good slam (redfish, snook, and trout) caught during the exact tide period shown above in the tide tutorial video below.

Were you shocked by the answer for the best tide?

We’d be doing you a disservice if we said tides weren’t critical.

In fact, it is essential for all saltwater anglers to know how to effectively read a tide chart because tidal cycles play such a big role in the feeding activity of redfish, snook, and trout.

However… make sure to not just focus on the tide height because the current is an EXTREMELY important factor to consider.

In order to get consistently good at catching quality inshore fish (redfish, trout, snook, flounder, etc.), you’ll have to get good at predicting where the top feeding zones will be based on multiple important factors such as:

  • Tides/Currents
  • Season
  • Wind direction/speed
  • Water temperature
  • Cloud cover
  • Water clarity

And if you’re serious about increasing your ability to catch more redfish, snook, trout, flounder, and other inshore fish, then be sure to give our Insider Fishing Club a try.


Because it’s the only fishing club guaranteed to help you skyrocket your slam catching success without having to spend years of time and thousands of dollars on gas, tackle, etc having to learn it all the hard way.

One of my favorite videos. Otis is the star of this nugget for shore. I learned that fishing when time permits is better than researching when is best to go and missing out on days while inside making those calls. Simple life, simple rule. I’m sure Otis will same the same.

I have a 30’ boat with twin engines and heading to backwaters is challenging. Would the same tide advise work for structure outside in the Gulf?

Please look at the Tide Charts for Destin for the next 2 Weeks.
None of these days resemble Anything Near what your Charts show in general.
