    Going out in the evening 'til past dark. Last time I fished around there (about 2 years ago) I was told that commercial fishermen had decimated the population around the port royal landing. Are there any good spots between there and leedstown?

    Sorry I didn't see your post before now. There are still some good ones out there. And there are good holes to fish from Little falls to Leedstown. I took my brother out last Friday night after the storms and caught one fish 35#. We fished till midnight and pulled out at low tide. The bite was slow so we called it a night.The river is full of small white perch and gizzard shad so it was hard to find one that was hungry. The fish we caught was stuffed with baitfish. We used fresh gizzard shad for bait and the fish was caught in 8' of water.
