Low tide. Tomahawk, NE Tasmania. Our boys fished here. And watched others catch huge Flathead while they got tantalizing nibbles! It didn't discourage them in the least! If anything, it whet their fishing appetite!
July 4, 1754, Fort Necessity, PA. This was the July 4th when George Washington was overwhelmed and surrendered during the French and Indian War. The tide turned later in the war and the British won. If they had lost we would be speaking French.
