The size of the tides aren't a problem, imo its best fished with light gear and the rod in the hand. a little rucksack for your bait. maddies in the day, lug or razor in the night. an easy lob and wander along with the tide - no need to run up and down shifting a tripod and seat box that you don't need anyway! however, although some surf is essential i get blanks when the surf gets up over five foot. two to four seems the best size to me - check 'magic seaweed' for a surf forecast. over 10 seconds on the swell period and a light offshore gives best results - ideal surf conditions = ideal bass conditions. Good luck!

Any idea what the weed will be like at the top of the beach Tim if there is a bit of surf? Never fished it on big tides but can imagine all weed and crap at the top of the beach getting washed up in the surf.

Also Tim only my opinion the surf is supposed to make for better fishing and I do agree but I've had real good sessions in the dark where its been flatter than a witches tit then when there's been surf on and good conditions etc I've walked away with a couple of bites and the odd school bass. Although I admit I've caught well in the same surf conditions on other tides. One thing that has been the same in my sessions though is the cover of darkness which for a predatory fish like bass is a perfect time to put its skills to good use.

a massive surf for me as been a no no, although my best bass off Genith is only 5.5lbs i have had better trips on med tides during dark with a small to medium surf- 2-3 foot max. Which is not a hard and fastv rule for most people and most beaches - just my experience here.....
