    I found a neat little Palm Pilot application. It's a freeware program with a database of tide and current tables for North America. It includes graphs and you can determine tide and current speed for any time of day. Lots of locations in Puget Sound - in fact, an amazing level of detail. For example, it shows current speed at Point Williams (the swimming pool at Lincoln Park) and at 4 different points in the Tacoma Narrows. The data goes out to 2031, though I elected to use the "memory saving" version that stops in 2014.

    Should be a great tool for us beach fishers. Here's the web site:

    I have seen that one running on a friends palm and it looks sweet. I run the Tides program on my palm, and I love it. Its not graphical, but I can store as much or as little data for as many sites as I want on it.
