Bait - Anything that will attract a fish strike. Live, dead, plastic
Ebb Current - The movement of a tidal current away from shore or
down a tidal river or estuary. (Out)
Flood Current - The movement of a tidal current toward the shore
or up a tidal river or estuary. (In)
Forcing Power - When current
speed has reached .3 knot. This is the event that will force baitfish and
shrimp to move from protection and be at the mercy of the current.
Reversing Current - A tidal current that flows alternatively in
approximately opposite directions with a slack water at each reversal of
Stand of Tide - An
interval at high or low water when there is no sensible change in the height
of the tide.
Slack Water - The state of a tidal current when its speed is near
zero, especially the moment when a reversing current changes direction and
its speed is zero.
Tidal Current - Generally, a horizontal
movement of water. Tidal Currents are caused by gravitational interactions
between the Sun, Moon and Earth and are a part of the same general movement
of the sea that is manifested in their vertical rise and fall, called tide.
Tidal Current Tables - Tables which give
daily predictions of the times and speeds of the tidal currents.
Tide - The periodic rise and fall of the
water resulting from gravitational interactions between the Sun, Moon, and
Tide Tables - Tables whcih give daily predictions of the times and
heights of high and low waters.
