I have to defend your post also, b/c your answer was pretty much right on. Skinny water is basically the shallows, the shallows that are really only fishable at high tide. Out of the way creek openings, coves, places where you won't find many shoobies in the summer. They can be very productive and at the same time a real pain in the a-- if you try fishing them at any other time other than high tide or close to it.Originally posted by Makojoe0317:
Anywhere the boat does not float.
I agree!Originally posted by CapeMayRay:
I fish mostly shallow water. I would say it is anyplace you can catch fish during higher water but where at low tide you can't float your boat or any area where you have to watch so you don't wreck your prop or lower unit. There are many times at night that bass will feed in one to two feet of water and stay there for quite awhile, where during the day they won't be there. Blues and Fluke would be the exceptions the light doesn't bother them as much.
Yepper, that is what I call skinny water. That's why they made flats boats with poling platforms.Originally posted by the love from below:
Alot of places I fish at high tide are dry at low. And at low tide you can almost count on running aground. I think, I run aground about 20 times this week. I look for quick moving water, that's smooth and has little rippels on the surface. Once you know what your lookin for it's alot more simple. Fish bustin the surface that's a dead give way!
P.S. A pole helps heaps!
