Curious to hear some input on what tides do you handliners(traps, rings etc) seem to do best in plus does the time of year make a difference??

I know early season(April & May) flounder fishing I normally do best on outgoing tide due to water temp increasing from warmer water flushing off flats etc.  Later in season as water warms up...incoming is the best.

Thanks!!

Moving tide is always better then slack tide. But some areas are different. Some places are better with incoming tide some with out going tide. While other places as long as the tide is moving it's fine. Sept and October is when I find the best crabbing. Crabs are bigger and they are fattening up for the winter.

I have never noticed a big difference crabbing. I know people will move there lines out when it is low tide and in when high. Would agree that it is best when moving. Even better in a light drizzle.

I seem to think that the 4th and 5th hour of the incoming tide are consistently the best in my neck of the woods.  Probably the 2nd and 3rd hours into the outgoing tides aren't too shabby either Wink

Earlier in the year when the water is cold, I prefer the outgoing tide.
