When do the fish bite best? That’s a question we hear a lot. In general, some conditions are better for fishing than others. Here’s an overview of the best times to fish: Sunrise / Sunset: The times just after the sun rises and just before the sun sets (and for about an hour after it sets) are among the best times to fish The One Hour Before / One Hour After Rule: The hour before and the hour after high and low tides Keep Your Eye on the Barometer: When the barometer is steady or rising, fishing conditions are generally good. If a storm is present, you can still catch fish because they still need to hunt despite the poor conditions. My most common techniques for fishing is spin fishing off light tackle using braided line in a 30 lb shock leader of monofilament. Other ways are swimbaits, bottom fishing, humping, popping cork in live shrimp, some times by request Croaker can be arranged, sight fishing with plastics, topwater lures, occasionally fly fishing is one of my best kept secrets.
