What is a Blowout Tide?

A blowout tide is when the water level in a body of water, like a river or a lake, drops dramatically and quickly. It usually happens due to factors like strong winds or atmospheric pressure changes, which can cause water to be pushed away from a particular area. This can expose usually submerged areas and make fishing more challenging, as fish might move to deeper spots. It's kind of like nature's way of playing hide and seek with anglers!

Pete "The Dean" Gluszek is out on the water with Bass University, talking about blowout tides. Ever been excited to go fishing, only to find that the weather has changed unexpectedly? It happens to everyone, and in those situations, you have to adjust quickly to the new conditions.

Pete discusses how to adapt to these changing conditions and survive a blowout tide, which can be really challenging. He explains the difference between a low tide and a blowout tide and emphasizes how drastic the changes can be.

Using his Humminbird electronics at the console, Pete shares his tide chart and tide cycle. This information is helpful in predicting what the water levels might look like during your fishing trip.

While fishing, Pete covers different deep habitats and places to explore when the water is blown out. These insights can help you catch more and bigger bass, even in tough conditions.
