Tide Question Need The OBs Help


Wanna go fishing Saturday because its my birthday. The problem is according to LA Sportsman and RodnReel there is zero tide movement in Hopedale or Lake Pontchartrain where I want to go. My question is this will I still be able to put some fish in the box? Prob still gonna so which place would be better ? TIA

ETA The reason why I ask is Ive never went saltwater fishing with with zero tide movement. Thanks for the help

FYI when fishing saltwater you add those numbers together 10-15=25

With those wind forcast you will have plenty of water movement.

It's a shame the wind is gonna be howling this weekend, because it should be a nice sunny weekend along the coast.

SAT
N WINDS 15 TO 20 KT. SEAS 4 TO 6 FT.

SUN
W TO NW WINDS 10 TO 15 KT. SEAS 2 TO 4 FT.

Sunday is manageable, but still pretty shitty, not a chinaman's chance I'd go Saturday though. (This is the offshore forcast btw)
