There is something about being on the water in the heat of the summer in the lowcountry that takes the relaxing and unwinding to another level. Worries wash away and what really matters becomes so clear.
The fish swim up through the marsh grass in the brackish water at high tide in search of Fiddler crabs to eat. The thing that makes this kind of fishing so fun is spotting the tailing redfish (when they swim so close to the surface of the water you can see their spotted tails).
Spotting Fiddler crabs like this one is a sign that reds are in the area.
Like with any fishing, you may have to move from spot to spot if you aren't having any luck. Check out different hard bottom grassy spots, even look near an oyster bar.
And, while spotting and catching something may be fun, the time spent together on the water beats almost anything else.
