Finally!!!

Weather, tides, wind, radar, sonar, satellite maps, and much more all in ONE place!

Plus, it’s 100% ad-free (so you don’t have to scroll through a bunch of annoying ads and pop-ups to get what you need).

But before I get into this amazing new fishing tide tool, can I ask you a quick question?

Would you like to know how to use tides and science to predict where feeding redfish, speckled trout, and flounder will be in your area?

Want to know the exact day and time that will maximize your chances of catching flounder, snook, reds, seatrout, etc?

Want to eliminate a big chunk of the guesswork to finding new fishing spots and catching your favorite inshore fish fast?

Then you’re going to love SMART FISHING TIDES!

It’s the only fishing tide and weather website that is custom-built for inshore saltwater fishermen that predicts the best day to fish, best time to fish, and even shows you hidden structure and potholes through sonar imaging.

We’ve been big fans of sites like Tides4Fishing but they have so much stuff (and ads) that it’s confusing and overkill.

So we set out to create the easiest, cleanest, most useful tide and solunar fishing forecast system on the planet.

No more having to learn how to read a tide chart…

Why?

Because we’ve done it for you!

Our tide charts and daily saltwater fishing forecasts give you hourly tide updates and forecasts that even a 7-year-old angler can understand.

In this podcast episode, we’re diving into the backstory of how Smart Fishing Tides came to be and what it can do for you, as well as sharing some info about special, limited-time access you don’t want to miss out on.

You can listen to this episode by watching the video, clicking the play button below it, or on iTunes, Stitcher, or Spotify.

So what all can Smart Fishing Tides do for you?

Well, let’s say I was fishing in St. Petersburg, Florida.

I’d first start with a tide station.

In this case, I’ll choose Point Pinellas.

Next, I’m taken to a page where I have a lot of info to help me decide when and where to fish.

The first thing I see is the Strike Score.

It looks like this coming Saturday is the best day to fish this week, with a Strike Score of 8, so I’ll plan on fishing that day.

Then I’ll scroll down and check the tides, weather, sunrise, and sunset.

Actually, it looks like there will be rain all day Saturday, so how about Friday?

Friday morning is looking better…looks like we might be doing a pre-work fishing trip Friday!

And speaking of rain, on Friday morning, before I go out, I’ll pop back in here and check the radar to see where the storms are, where they’re coming from, and where they’re headed.

Next, I’ll scroll down to see when the bite is supposed to be best.

It’s looking like it’ll be good in the morning for my pre-work trip.

Now, where exactly should I fish?

If I scroll down, I have Google satellite maps to check out.

And if I scroll down a little more I also have sonar maps to check the depth.

Pa-POW!

I can’t get it to load either. Does not show home page as it is suppose to do. I click on the tide station I want and nothing happens. It says loading tide station map but it never gets there. I have tried on computer and i-phone does same exact thing on both. It shows some sort of dancing icon.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I’ve notified our web mgr about the issue so it should be fixed soon. In the meantime, you can still use the alphabetical search by state that starts at the bottom of the home page.

Thank you for your assistance Luke, it is working now.

This would be awesome, but I can’t get it to load a strike score or anything. And it doesn’t pin point my exact areas. I hope it works great for those that can use it

Luke Simonds

Hey Thomas, what tide station are you having issues with (or is it all of them)? And what device are you using?

Note: Pinning the exact spot is something that we went away from because it was giving users a false sense of security given that the tide forecasts are only available for the specific tide stations listed on this new map. The prior system would simply autoselect the closest tide station for any given spot that a pin was dropped, and many users were assuming that the tide information was specific for the pin mark vs. the nearby station. This new system allows users to see exactly where the tidal information is from, so then time can be added or subtracted based on the proximity of the exact spot that will be fished to the respective tide station. Given how many tides stations there are, the time lag is minimal in most situations.

Wadding only, no boat. Need info on Sanibel Causway and Y-Bell. Nothing there right now. Thanks.

For fishing the Sanibel Causeway, I recommend using the Punta Rassa tide station because it’s extremely close by: https://www.smartfishingtides.com/Florida/Punta-Rassa-San-Carlos-Bay-tides/8725391-tides

This is great! It would be helpful if we could print any of the charts . We could print a chart or graph for reference on the water

Wonderful tool. Do you plan to get stations in New Zealand?

Eric Black

Great tool, Salt Strong team. This is super useful. Thanks!

Forest Duncan

The tide chart states the exact tide height for the low and high tides but not for tide levels in between. Is it possible to tweak the chart to state the tide height for any tide level one clicks on the tide amplitude line? This would take the guesswork out of calculating the height of the tide at the time you caught a fish. Thanks for putting together this incredibly useful tool.

I am a new salt water fisherman.
And a fly guy. Was an Orvis endorsed Fresh water guide for years, am an insider and love salt strong for helping me learn the saltwater environment. Have learned allot from Tony and Luke and the insiders. No competition. “Stay fly! “ Fish well”. Give the fly a try.

Aside from being blown away with what you have created, I do have a couple of questions, If a few of the places I fish are let’s say a 90-minute difference from the tidal reference point nearest me do I adjust my “Best bite times” by that 90 minutes? And secondly, does the bite time take into account some of our local tragedies like a red tide bloom in that area and wind strength and direction and tide that moves it into a facing shoreline or mangrove area? Thanks guys for what looks to be something truly amazing.

Luke Simonds
Admin

Great questions Randal! The tide delay will impact the timing of the hourly feeding level score, but it won’t be an exact 90 minute shift because the tidal movement is just one of many factors that this incorporates… what area are you fishing that has such a large delay compared to the closest tide table?

The score does not yet account for anomalies like red tide, but we can surely add it in if it becomes a big factor like it was last year along the gulf coast of central FL (hopefully that won’t be needed).

But the score does account for wind strength and direction for both the daily and hourly scores… it’s up to the angler to decide which specific zones in the general tide station location to go to for maximized results though (which is an easy task for Insiders given the fish finding trends that are shared every week in the Insider Reports).

Hey Luke, wow I didn’t expect such a quick reply. Thanks so very much. One of the areas I fish the most is the mangrove shoreline east of St James and slightly east of the south end of Matlacha Pass and along the back areas off the southwest corner of Cape Coral. I believe the tidal reference that is used is Punta Rasa of which I have learned its effects average between 1 and 2 hours to reach my area depending upon wind and the severity of the tidal rise and fall. The other area I often refer to with my tidal checks is the Iona Shores which is on a site I use. From there the time difference is about an hour.
And about the dang red tide, I have been seeing plenty of pinfish and mullet running along the mangroves until just recently, but since the winds have been blowing out of the south and west straight into and through the Sanibel Causeway and right towards the south end of Matlacha pass (my area included) Now I’m beginning to see some a few dead fish and a few scattered mullet and hardly any pinfish. I have to believe the feeding patterns are beginning to be affected. I hope I am wrong, and praying for that wind out of the north again. But right now portions of Pine Island Sound are heading towards a red tide attack as the mid-week FWC forecast isn’t looking pretty. (FWC Red Tide forecast link Below)

Thanks again for a wonderful tool that should make a big-time difference for many, though I will be out there whenever I can anyway.

I know you are in Florida and your research is done there. Does the same apply to the south TX coast?

Luke Simonds
Admin

Yes. We have over 1,000 Insider Club members who live in TX who have reported that the core feeding trends we track are accurate over there too. Our fisheries (southeastern US) are much more similar than most people think… the redfish, seatrout, flounder, and snook all react to the same tide and weather fluctuations the same exact way regardless of which specific region they are in.

What a great app! Everything I usually look at (now that I’ve joined Insider) pulled together in one place. Thank you so much for building this. As a now retired Computer Systems Engineer that specialized in GEO systems, I know exactly how much work went into this project. Excellent job, Nick!

And just like Eric Peters mentioned below, I’ve book marked my favorite tide station and am only a single click away from all of this info at any time of the day.

Thank you so much.

Looks like a real winner. Would it be possible to integrate your information with the GPS on the pone to show your current location on the map and chart. This would be really useful.

Richard Fiorentino

should be ‘phone’ note ‘pone’ My fingers don’t work so well.

Luke Simonds

Thanks for making time to send in the helpful idea. We definitely hope to add that feature in sometime soon.

Eric Peters

Just tested it out on my phone, worked flawlessly, loaded quickly and was super easy to use! Already added my tide station to my home screen so it’s one click away! This is going to replace my fishing points app I do believe! Thank’s for all the hard work!
