TIDE is the official national publication of CCA and exclusive to our members.

TIDE is the official national publication of Coastal Conservation Association and has been in circulation since the organization’s founding in 1977. TIDE’s editorial content is a careful balance of angling information, updates on the latest fishing gear and apparel, celebrations of the coastal lifestyle, marine science articles, and reviews of member-driven habitat enhancement projects. TIDE is targeted to both inshore and offshore anglers on all three coasts and is delivered quarterly to every CCA member. The Texas Outdoor Writers Association has frequently recognized TIDE as the best outdoor publication in the state and our stable of writers are regular recipients of outdoor regional writing awards. With a circulation of more than 101,000, TIDE’s audience is made up of dedicated, conservation-minded anglers committed to enhancing and celebrating their sport and lifestyle while creating a better fishing future for their kids and grandkids.
