I'm far from an expert but I have stayed in N. Palmetto point around 8 times and the tides are obviously important. However, with that said, I've always run into wind so being able to figure out where you can see fish or even just manage good casts is often more important.
I love ocean side fishing but with a strong NE/E/SE breeze that can create some big waves. So then west coast, Savannah Sound or the creeks in the south are better bets. Bring a map with North indicated on it, check your conditions and your forecast for the day.
I have found that the breeze tends to advance clockwise over the course of a week if there is a system in the area.
Hope that helps a bit.
PM if you have any specific questions.
