    Default Surfcasting with High Tides

    Is it true that the higher the tide the better the fishing when surfcasting for halibut? For example would a high of 21 be better than a high of 17?

    Depends where you are. High tide at kasilof is the only way.

    Deep creek can go either way.

    Kasilof has a trench where the fish are. At low tide you would need an anvil to keep your line in the water

    Deep creek doesn't have this issue. Only problem with low tide is its only a few feet deep for a long way out.
