I'm fairly new to spearfishing, only been doing it for about 1 1/2 years. I was wondering what the people here thought about the best time for entering the water close to shore, ie. high tide or low tide. I know that when I'm reef fishing (with rod and real) the best is to start fishing at high tide, follow it out, and then fish it all the way back to high tide again.
Is there any perferable way to spearfish that relates to tides?

I've never dove from shore, but I would think you'd have better vis at high tide.

incoming tide close to high has always been best visibilaty wise for me.

What about predatory fish coming in from deeper water during certain parts of the tide?

All you usually get are sharks, and they don't taste as good as some of the others, so I'd leave them alone :)
