Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so what is a video worth? Time. It took a lot longer than I had anticipated to make and post these videos (was originally only supposed to be one video, but who knew YouTube has a length upload limit?) after shooting the footage, editing, and then finally uploading them.

I tried to keep the video as short as possible while still including all the information that I wanted to include, and I failed miserably at making it short and including everything I wanted to talk about. So, when you have some time to burn at work or while waiting for this weather to clear up take a look at these videos. Be forewarned that you may be bored to death, but hopefully you will take a thing or two out of this tirade that will help you become a better angler or at least catch more fish.

Furthermore, if you have any tide links that you like to use that are not mentioned feel free to share them.

I use this tidal site the most when I’m trying to decide when and where I want to fish. It gives both predicted and observed/actual tide levels.

I use this site when I want to get a more detailed picture of what the tides are doing throughout the day. I also use this website to see tidal trends over longer periods of time.

This website has a great animation of how the tides move in and out of our bay system.

Although I didn’t mention it in the video I also use this tide cam to see what the tide is doing, especially if I’m going to be fishing anywhere around this area.

Here’s another site I have saved that has tables for many places along the Texas Coast.
