Tidal flows create many places you can use the current like a kite letting line out to get out farther. At this scale the long lines are out 150 yards. Predators will often be off to the side of the fast current waiting for bait fish to come in or out through a pass.
If you can cast out far enough to get in the flow, you can free drift and steer as needed working them out to find the fish and get them to hit with side to side lure action. Tidal flows are continuously changing faster or slower and reversing that may require you to change your vantage point. This method also works from piers when wind creates flow that run down the beach. Anyhow, if you get tired of casting, try clipping on a Steer It Fishing float and zigzagging to get fish to strike!
