Wade Fishing Tactics For Inshore Slams [VIDEO]
Tidal creeks have several feet of water moving in and out through a tide cycle.
My favorite time to target tidal creeks is at low tide.
But make sure it’s wadable!
There’s almost nothing worse than scouting out a new area to find there’s no way to walk it.
Try to find spots with a sandy bottom or a high bank that will help you walk around that creek safely.
Also, you need to be stealthy.
Walk around these areas slowly and methodically because, at low tide, there’s not much distance that separates you from the fish.
Target deeper holes because that’s where the majority of the fish will be located during the lower part of the tide.
Cast past the deeper holes and retrieve through the over those areas slowly to locate where fish are holding.
When fishing tidal creeks, you also want to cover the entire area by fan casting.
This helps you cover the creek at all angles!
Lastly, you need to identify the types and sizes of bait present.
Sometimes all you need is a change in the profile size of your bait to have success catching fish.
Wade and bank fishing are great ways to catch a ton of fish!
And great news, you don’t need a boat or a kayak (and only need minimal tackle).
