? for Jeff Freeman

jeff do you remember the tides in relation to when you caught the hoo? it seems that it was a couple of hours before the low and turn to incoming. did the bite slow at a certain time. also were they on the reef or on the deep water side?

Tides

agulhas, low3, high, incoming, or outgoing have no bearing offshore. Every thing out there is governed by the Rotary Tides which have nothing to do with Low and High. Rotary Tides have strengths of a Low of 7 to a High of 14. Jeff was out on the 14th of Feb and the Rotary tides that day were 11. To learn about Rotary Tides buy Gulf Coast Fisherman by Harold Wells. It comes out Quarterly and gives you everything on the inshore Tides as well as the Offshore Rotary Tides. It also gives the Moon Phases. Drshark

i think he was out on the 10th. you are correct but i guess i mistyped my question. i am more interested on if the fish were caught on top of the reef or if they were waiting for the bait to be pulled into deeper water by the current as it passed over the reef. also even if you have a current moving in a loop it is moving through a very large area and the current is pulling in a certain direction over the reef. if you are sitting on the reef it is going to seem like it is moving in a certain direction and if you knew no better it would seem that it was coming in or going out. just interested to know which direction the current was moving in in relation to where the fish were caught on the reef. but currents do move in horizontal directions. they often move for thousands of miles in a certain direction. for eg. if you are in carolina or the east coast and you are fishing the gulf stream you have a current that acts like a tide by moving in a n.n.e direction all the way up to the lefoten islands. on a different scale the tidal pull effects the movement as wells charts forecast. the water moves in and out at different speeds over the gardens on any diff day. then of course you have loop currents in the gulf that collide and correlate differently and cause many "weather systems" in the water.

so the question for jeff: which direction was the water moving in when you caught the hoo - mexico, cuba, florida, louisiana, houston, corpus, etc.?

All the wahoo were caught between 10:30am to 1pm. The water depth was around 250' but the hump they were on top of was around 170' deep. The bite was hot the entire time. I didn't really notice what the current was doing, it wasn't moving much. The moon was up and about 2/3 full. Lures weren't important they hit every color and type of lure I tried.

Contact Frank Nobels (now retired) & living in Matagorda I think. He Knows more about the tides, Moon over, Moon under than anyone I have ever met. Tell him Rik J. said to call & he can & probally will tell you anything you may want to know. Having said that-
I think like most that has no huge bearing on Wahoo. He could always tell me when the best bite was for Snapper, but again, when you find the right fish (hungry ones) they
bite. It helps out much more when fishing is tough. It also has much more bearing on
the bay & jettys. Rik
