Flood Tide Fishing Pawleys Island
Spring fishing in Pawleys Island and Georgetown is a magical time. A time that we as fisherman have longed for all winter long. Warm water, longer days and lunar tides that flood our spartina grass. These spring tides bring hungry Redfish up on the flats looking to gorge themselves. Feeding primarily on fiddler crabs or anything else they may stir up. Fishing for tailing Redfish is very special because these large tides only happen a few times a month from April to October.
With a short season and small windows we try and take full advantage of every tide. For me, there is something majestic about standing on the poling platform and gliding across a flats hunting redfish. Often times we are in just inches of water. The experience of pure solitude, stunning sunsets and of course seeing redfish doing what they do is nothing short of spectacular.
Till next tide.
