Forcing Power - When current speed has reached .3 knot. This is the event that will force baitfish and shrimp to move from protection and be at the mercy of the current.

Reversing Current -
A tidal current that flows alternatively in approximately opposite directions with a slack water at each reversal of direction.

Stand of Tide - An interval at high or low water when there is no sensible change in the height of the tide.

Slack Water - The state of a tidal current when its speed is near zero, especially the moment when a reversing current changes direction and its speed is zero.

Tidal Current - Generally, a horizontal movement of water. Tidal Currents are caused by gravitational interactions between the Sun, Moon and Earth and are a part of the same general movement of the sea that is manifested in their vertical rise and fall, called tide.

Tidal Current Tables - Tables which give daily predictions of the times and speeds of the tidal currents.
