The common thread of fishing rivers, streams and tidal bass fisheries is undeniably the presence of moving water. In the case of rivers and streams, the water generally flows in one direction.

That being the case, finding yourself at the right place at the right time is more critical with tidal bass fishing than any other form of freshwater angling.
