Have your bigger fish been caught on high slack or low slack?

Hard to even begin to answer this unless it’s tied to a specific location.

I am asking the question in a general sense without any specifics other than high or low water periods and big fish, i.e., 30+ lbs.

Every spot has its own unique things going on related to tides. Unfortunately you have to fish all tides multiple times at each spot to find what is the best. At least that’s how I always did it coming up.

Neither, slack tide often turns a bite off unless your into a blitz.

Definitely spot specific.

Both periods around slack can be reel good.

For bigger fish, I prefer the low end of outgoing.

Slack has always been best for me.  General rule for many of my spots is high slack is best around shallow areas like bays and boulder fields, and low slack for deeper structure, dropoffs and outflows.  But every spot can be very different depending on tide bait and other conditions.

Always found the lowest part of high slack and the highest part of low slack to be the most productive but it's tricky to time it just right.
