High tide in the AM produces the best catch! I got this tip from another website.

I won't even go out anymore unless high tide is in the morning.  I swear it gives me a much better haul.  I can still catch them at low tide or slack, but when it's high tide and I'm out there at sun up, those crabs are eating good and my traps are heavy.  Any day is a good day out on the water but I'm trying to get this thing down to a science.

Anyone else get the same results?

I've found incoming tide in the AM up to high is the best. But, I've also found that as long as the water is moving we will catch. Slack tide, just forget it. We caught the outgoing tide the last 3 mornings and finished out with 72, 40 & 52. Those are #'s I'll never complain about. Plus where we are the wind always seems to pick up after noon, so we leave between 5:30 & 6:30, adjusting the time just to avoid slack tide. So in my opinion water movement is the key and the logs I keep say that incoming does yield slightly better results, but not near enough to go out later or avoid the outgoing tide.

High am tide is good but first two hours of the morning are great no matter the tide for me.
