What Tide Should I Fish? There are many misconceptions and rumors about the best tide to fish. Some fishermen will not fish small tides, some will not fish large tides. There are certainly areas you donít want to fish on either extreme but when planning your trip, first consideration should be your schedule.

For those of you who want to book your trip based on tides, we have included a tide chart. Our Captains choose their daily fishing spots based on the days tide and personal experience. For the larger tides (15 to 25 ft.), we generally fish shallow waters such as 40 to 150 ft. and for the smaller tides (15 ft. or less), we generally fish the deeper waters like 150 ft. or greater. As a general rule, the smaller the tide the "easier" the fishing, not "better". We have had some of our most successful trips on the larger tides. Cook Inlet has some very large tide swings, but because of all the islands in our fishing area, we are able to fish away from the main currents, making a better trip for you.
