Looking for some advice guys. I've been told by a couple of people that fishing for bass at low water gives you a good chance of getting bigger fish off the beach is this true?

makes sense to me. beaches, i tend to fish over low. rock marks (deep) over high.

I think it depends on the venue,
I fish a sandy beach thats fishes best on a low
and a rough ground beach that fishes best on a high.
I think the only way to know for sure is to experiment
with different stages of the tide

in some circumstances fishing at low water will allow you to sight fish and you can spot where the fish are and target the bigger ones. I agree with the distance thing they can move and hunt around in very shallow water.

Ive never targeted fish on beaches with rods, having the boat, but my cast net turns up bigger fish at low water, and normally less than knee deep!

High water is harder to fish, so it could be co-incidence!
