I'm someone who loves to fish. I love especially saltwater fishing for reds, trout, flouder, drum, etc. Do I get to got as often as I would like to? No! I know that the tides, moon, water temp, etc effects if fish will feed. However, I would like to know what's the details?

Because I can't go as often as the charter captains, or others, I want to know what are things I can look at to tell if it will be a good time to go or not to go. I went fishing the other night at the pier in Mandeville. The two forecast I read said the tides would be moving and it would be a good time to fish. I went the times they said would be best. I caught nothing.... Not even a bite. I had fresh bait, used gulps, rattle traps, and other baits with no success. The tide was moving good, bait was very active, and water clarity was decent. What was my problem? Othes also were not catching anything. Would love some advice. I feel your comments may help others also. Thanks

Brian, even with the best tidal prediction, the new moon, clean water, high salinity, and perfect water temps 68-72, even the guides will get skunked sometimes. the wind can and will overide the tide from time to time, the day after a period of overcasts nights can make a full moon perfect. you just have to go and go and write down the conditions each time.

when i die bury me deep, put a bucket of bait at my feet, put a rod and reel in my hand and i will fish my way to the promised land !!!! remember we did not inherit these resources from our parents, we are merely borrowing them from our children

The fish were just not moving in that area while you were fishing. That is sometimes the benefit of having or fishing from a boat. you can move until you find them...don't give up

Fret Not, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday!
