There is no stronger force than the pull of the moon on the tide of the ocean. This is a definite flow. Every 6 hours and 23 minutes, the tide will change. Fishermen gauge their fishing cycles with the tides, bridges are timed with the height of the tide and attitudes of wildlife change with the tides. With all that force of an eight foot tide at the above site, it would take a very strong, healthy and determined fish to handle that flow. If he went with the flow, he would leave the brackish waters of the Pocotaligo River and enter the salty waters of the Atlantic Ocean in short order. Not good unless you are a salt water dweller. The marsh in this photo is in its winter colors and is just up the Broad River from the boot of Hilton Head Island, SC. Anyone been there? Gorgeous. But, the pull and the flow of the tide at this juncture is not for the weak and mamby pamby. I saw a blip on the TV this AM and this slogan pulled across the screen about only dead fish going with the flow and I believe it. So if someone says, " ah shucks, just go with the flow", think what they are asking you to do. It may be bad waters ahead if you cave to the request.
