A moving tide is a good place to "start"......but, you'll have to "LEARN" the water you work........You'll have to figure out what tide, or what part of the tide works best for YOUR water.....and what tides work for you, depending on what time of the year it is.... Wink

I personnally prefer the incoming tide, but that's just a preference as opposed to being based on anything factual.

I too prefer an incoming tide when I'm at the head of the rivers in the summer...I fished both today....the last few hours of high tide and the first few hours of low tide.  I wasn't at the head of a river and the outgoing tide was much better....ended with 2-1/2 Wink

I prefer that when I get out just starting early in the morning, the tide is completely low tide. When the water is a good 4' lower than high tide, you can see how the land is much better. I like to park my boat where I see that the sides of the channel slop off gradually, so that way, when the tide comes in, I have my boat overtop of where the water gets shallower on one side of the boat, and deeper to the other side...Also, at a low tide, you can see channels that connect to the main channel (say in dividing creek) that still have water in them when the tide is low. If I see a channel that has no water in it at low tide, then I know not to crab in that particular channel, because there probably wont be very many crab in there.
Crab are probably in deeper parts of the channels right now because of all the rainfall lately and considering the bay probably hasnt warmed up to its usual summer heat yet, so I would crab during the tide coming in, and in about 6-12 feet of water. Thats probably your best shot.
