Nisqually Sunday

Postby Quackkiller12 » Sat Oct 26, 2013 12:14 am

Was wondering if the tides for Sunday will be any good? Seems like it'll be a low tide for the first shoot, unless I'm reading them wrong,

Good luck to all who are headed out this weekend!!!!

Might wanna find out FOR SURE what the tide is gonna do! LAST thing you wanna do is get them mixed up, thats a recipe for disaster.
Shooting a spike is like getting it on with your step sister, you are glad you put some meat away but you don't brag it up to your friends.

I do understand I need to but I just don't totally understand how to read them, is that body of water by the refuge the DuPont Wharf, Nisqually Reach? If it is, this is the tide

2013-10-27 1:17 PM PDT 12.54 5:54 AM PDT 2.17 8:24 PM PDT 5.68 7:46 PDT 6:01 PDT
High. Low. Low

And help on reading this please I believe it would be low tide at 5:54am high tide at 1:17pm then low tide again at 8:24pm? Are the low tides really low or are they ok? Just really don't know what that 12.54 and 2.17 mean at all. Any help is appreciated also are these good tides for nisqually?

The 12.54 is feet of water and the 2.17 is feet of water, That is a good high tide with alot of water. and that 2ft. low is not to bad it just depends where you are trying to get to. Every couple weeks though lows will go to a neg. tide and then you are screwed. check your spot when the tides are high and low and see how it looks, Just don't get caught out there on the low tide with no water..

I strongly suggest getting an app for your phone (iOS, Android, WP) that can give you the tide other important data to the minute. Most guys I know have gotten stuck when hunting salt, it's just part of learning but it's how you prepare for those type of situations that count.

Given I have those tools and still got stuck was pure stupidity, but that's a story for another day. Those with knowledge of the situation, can shut it. :lol3:

Been there done that. I always time my trips to new areas such that worst case is I can get out before sunset.

Cheers!
