Pascagoula River
« on: May 07, 2020, 08:48:01 PM »

Got out about 9 this morning which was 4-5 hours to early, high tide was 11:15 and did not start falling until after 1 for our first afternoon falling tide since last fall. Caught 2 nice fish before noon but from 2 until 4:30 I managed 8 more stuffed to the gills keepers and that many shorts before I left the lower marsh and ran back to Bluff Creek to try some topwater without much luck. All my fish came on the Zoom UV worm in 5-7' of water,  tight to the grass line in deeper bends of bayous below I-10 as the tide fell. Clear skies, 55 degrees when I left and 75 later in the day, winds calm early then out of the South at 10 mph  in the afternoon, water temps 73-75 and visibility 1-2'. Fun day on the water.

Playing the tide adds another element but you go when you can go ~c~ Sounds like a good day, thanks for the report.

Mike tide makes all the difference on a tidal system, especially from now until winter and falling is much better than rising. Being retired, I can go whenever I want so all you guys that have to work, I'll leave Saturday just for you.

Why is a falling tide better than rising?

Well, to me the falling tide is better, because all the bait is moving back into the deeper water from the shallows. But that's just my thinking...

As Bayou said the falling tide pulls bait out of the grass and bass can sit in ambush around the mouths of small drains, ditches and bayous and get their fill and it shrinks down the total area that the bait has to hide in . It kind of rings their dinner bell. Rising tide pushes bait in and expands total surface area buy a lot thus giving much more room for dinner to hide also gives bass more room to roam and not concentrated into small areas.

Thanks. I have only fished high tides in my neck of the woods ( Ft Bayou ) so far. I might have to plan an evening trip some time to catch it on the fall. I assume the best part of a falling tide is not when it initially starts falling? Maybe half way into a falling tide?
