Terry Mulkey, one of the best in the business explains this years Bouy 10 Strategies really nicely. The tides will determine most of when and where the fish will be.
The first good tidal cycle starts Friday, with high water at 7:56 a.m and an exchange of 4.8 feet, he said. On Saturday, the exchange is 4.1 feet and 4.0 feet on Sunday.
Other weekends with good tides are Aug. 21-23 and Sept. 5 through Labor Day, Sept. 7.
“If I only had one weekend to fish, it’d be that weekend of Aug. 22 and 23,’’ Mulkey said at a seminar last week.
The difference between high and low tides are only 4.2 feet on Aug. 21, 3.3 feet on Aug. 22 and 2.8 feet on Aug. 23.
