Sleep in to catch more fish right now!

Is it possible to catch fish on a rising tide this time of year? Certainly. In fact, in certain scenarios, like targeting speckled trout along a beach, it’s actually a prime situation.

But if you’re a marsh angler, you should time every autumn trip to fish a falling tide. Why? Because the marshes are overloaded with bait — particularly white shrimp — in the late summer and early autumn, and it takes a falling tide to pull them into reach of speckled trout, redfish, bass and other marsh miscreants.

The fish become so predictable, it almost isn’t fair.

On my most recent trip, I slept in and dodged thunderstorms to fish a falling tide in the afternoon, a decision that paid dividends. I didn’t catch any big fish, but boy, did I catch a bunch of them!
