Was at my Chincoteague place last 5 days & they had major flood tides every day. Hunter moon combined with offshore hurricane compounded pushing tidal surges in the area. Fishing/crabbing totally shutdown due to deteriorated water coloration. Gave me a chance away from playtime to devote to growing "honey do list"!! lol

Our marina/slips were totally underwater. First I ever seen this. Locals say sea level is slowly rising each year.

slack tide is about the worst time to fish period ,
well unless you count clam digging as fishing??

tides down south had me in fits for awhile until I threw the book out on what I learned fishing NJ waters
there's really no comparables.
down in fla I found time of day or weather conditions were a bit more influential then the direction of a tide.
as long as it was moving. typically the difference was only 1-3 ft between high and low

Da hawk ate my baby!!

Another reason to avoid slack tide is the skate always seem to feed then!!
