Good - at least it is not complicated!
Adrian and Juro,
Thank's I've saved the links for use at school. However, even Adrian's simple model (let alone the link Juro posted) demonstrates how complicated the relationships that result in tides are!
Without a doubt, tides effect our fishing success, but like I said before, I think the best way to understand tides is to just go fishing! Keep track as best you can of what spots produce at various stages of various tides and hope that eventually you can discern a useable pattern!
Tight lines - tyler.
