Yep tides are always problematic.
Launching on a falling tide has its problems where I am and then staying out for the turn is grand. However, how long do you have to stay out till there is enough of the wet stuff under you to get back in? As I say always a conundrum.
Some times I've had to tie her off at the pier end and come back a few hours later to retrieve her. Creates a bit of a bottleneck at our small harbour.
Anyway I'm not really that serious a fisherman, I do it as an excuse to lie back and drift more times than enough!
