Fishing Tides: Everything You Need To Know (Best Tide, Reading Charts…)
By: Joseph Simonds on June 30, 2020
Have you ever planned a fishing trip, just to get out on the water and find that the water is doing the total opposite of what the tide chart said it would be doing?
Maybe the tide chart said the tide was coming in all morning, but you get out there and it’s actually going out…
Or it was supposed to be high tide, but the water was so low you couldn’t get to your favorite spot…
Has that ever happened to you?
Here’s the thing, tide charts are extremely accurate for the gravitational forces of the moon and the sun which are the biggest drivers of the tides.
But those aren’t the only factors that affect tide and current.
You also need to account for non-gravitation factors such as:
When planning your trips and figuring out what the water will be doing, you need to take all of these factors into consideration.
Sometimes the tide chart will be accurate, sometimes it won’t be, but in this podcast, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about tides so you can get better at planning your fishing trips and catch more fish.
I’d definitely recommend watching the video version of this podcast below (we show a lot of maps and tide charts), but you can also listen to the audio version by clicking the play button underneath it, or listen to it on iTunes, Stitcher, or Spotify.
