I wish I could but I have to be at BWI at 4am to drop someone off. The fishing should be good there between 8pm and 1am tonight. The Croaker and Spot are still there, last week I caught 2 Blues and saw 2 keeper Flounder caught on bloodworms. Goodluck and if you go please post a report in the morn. as I'll be there Friday night for sure. Again goodluck & tightlines
First off the best time to fish is any chance you get. That said based on the tides I would fish NBP Thur. night from about 8pm to 3am and then pack it up. At low tide the bite will stop for the most part and maybe pick back up at daylight for a hour or so.
I try to fish the last hour of the incoming tide, hightide and the outing. I will stay longer just depends on the bite. The real trick is not the tide but that the water needs to be moving.
Below are the tides for Thur. & Fri. Hope this helps you out...Tightlines
