Adrian, I agree with you in regards to the outgoing tide through sunrise. My only problem would be that I cannot stay out all night, because I have a set of morning classes to teach at the academy on Saturday morning. I can fish until probably midnight the latest.
However, don't let that stop us from fishing there. We could try the incoming by foot as you've mentioned, as I'd like to try learning the area on that tide too. I've had a modicum of success on the incoming, but nothing like the success I've had on the outgoing.
I'm flexible and willing to learn.
