Tidal Predictions for Brewsters

Using these tables http:/tbone.biol.scedu/tide do I select Barnstaple Harbor Beach Point Cape Cod Bay MA . If so is there much difference to add /subtract for Brewsters.

Thanks

Mike

Beach point is generally 10 to 15 minutes ahead of brewster flatz. I use sesuit for brewster flats. You can compare at:

Use East End Canal + delay for ebb if there is any "N" in the wind direction and it's steady over 15; a smaller delay for flood if there is any "S" in it.

More importantly, get your ass off in time

I got to love you Guys two say Sesuit one east canal I am searching for the pin after I finish typing this. LOL

Juro by getting my ass out of there, last time out from Old Saints we started the hike back one hour after low. No wind that day to push in tide faster. I have left it later I won't say by how much in case you start looking around for Undertakers. What would be the general consenses of when to get out of there if no North wind is blowing and it's say a middle sized tide not a spring. Just an indication would be fine not asking you to hang your hat on your possible reply.

Thanks Guys

Mike

I use the Wellfleet tides. May be off from Brewster by 10-15 min, but that's not that far off when you think about it.

Depends on how well you know the routes. If you do you can stretch 1.5-2 hours of flood; if you don't well wear swim trunks and leave your wallet and cell phones in the car.

Each year the routes are different, it takes time to learn them. Each spot has different routes, which are different every year.

This is one way a guide earns his keep out there.

Thanks for the suggestions Juro. I do not know the routes of course having been away for at least a year ,so it's all to try and learn again. This means of course that I have to allow for a greater safety margin, which I will do. First couple of trips I will probably wear my wet suit to just in case. It is not the silver bullet safety wise but is better than getting caught out in chest waders.

Mike

Outgoing tides can be good, sometimes excellent - and safe. While learning the incoming situations you can go out well before the low and enjoy a long outing. But nothing beats the drum like the flood, just like bonefish.

Mid May through June I love the outgoing. One of my favorites is a dropping tide where the high was pre dawn. Hunt the troughs out with the tide and eventually you run into fish both droppin out and pushing, frequently tailing. I always love the flood too but fishing the flood doesn't become critical to happiness 'til things warm up in july. Just my opinion.

I like the drop as well. There can be times in the spring when you are surrounded by the most disinterested bass in the world and I don't think it has anything to do with fly/leader/presentation. I think they come up there to take a snooze and warm up. Totally different game than Monomoy is (was).

Thanks guys this is all grist to the mill and feeding my desire no end. Today a friend a Brit who has been secretly coming over for 25 years sent me a couple of samples of his buoyant flies made so with a taperd foam head. He has used Artic Marbled Fox Hair for the wings and he tells me this stuff does not knot up like artic sheap hair. It is very mobile and comes in decent lengths. Needless to say the sellar of such hair got an order within minutes of discovering what Geoff makes his flies from.
Trying to keep the lid on a steaming pot is not easy.

Cheers

Mike

If you are getting it from a "foxy" lady in Frodsham you could do worse than ask her to send you some of her cashmere goat hair too, it's lovely stuff very fine long and translucent too
