It all depend on the spot I'm fishing. There is a spot good at the top of the incoming. There is a spot that's good at the top of the outgoing. There is a spot that is good just before dead low. You get my point, I hope. :howdy:

And all can change if there is no bait for the bass to feed on.

5-10 years ago when there was still a healthy Striped Bass population, I would say any time you can fish is the right time. My PB 38lbs was caught during the day at dead low tide. My two next biggest bass were also caught during the day. They were all caught in November.  Generally speaking though, nightime, sunrise, sunset and any low light conditions will be better. As far as moons go, I fish them all. Some say before and after a full moon is good.

Or even worse when there's a ton of adult bunker in the spot you want to fish but at dusk the marina across from you decides to have a 15 minute fireworks show.

 

Didn't even see any bait around after that, everything was spooked away:banghd:
