Hi Itsa, your chart for my area shows best fishing time from 12 noon on Saturday 18th.when the tide is rising. All articles on the net mention best fishing when the tide is receding, can you please explain the disparity. Thank you

haha - are you sure ALL articles on the net state that fishing is best on a falling tide?
The best fishing times on FR are based on the Solunar Theory ( Sun and Moon )
Unless you are a fishing a very particular location that really only works on a falling tide, like a specific river mouth, I would say that all those articles on the net that say that fishing is only best on a falling tide could possibly be wrong
In many locations the key is a running current which happens on either falling or rising tide.

No.... other than what Mark has stated, I cannot explain it.

Unless there is a specific reason....

I prefer to fish an out going tide on the beach. But that is only because the tide is going out, which means I can get closer to the channels without getting my feet wet...It also means that any food left behind might get washed back into the water.
