    I haven't heard any reports, Marty. Maybe Rivercatsc or BillinSC will chime in with something. I think the GPD is pretty high right now, and most of the big blue catfish may have migrated downriver to intercept the shad and herring as the come into fresh water.

    The river is still up, Marty, but has been receding for about four days and is certainly fishable. I imagine you could catch something down that way, but if you are going that far, why not follow us to Winyah and fish down there? Cut bait or eels would be the bait of choice in either area.

    The river is pretty high still above flood stage in that area. I had a buddy that fished in that area last week and caught 1 blue about 9lbs on cut eel. I would take Bills advise it isnt but about 30 minutes further than Allisson Landing and amuch better chance of catching a BIG fish. :wink:

    Not sure about that far down, but I have been crossing PeeDee at 301 everyday this week and there is a lot of trash coming out of the freshly logged area off of 301. Just watch out if you go!

    Well, Marty, since this post was started, the bottom dropped out of the river. It is actually starting to get low enough to expose the rock/sand bars. If you go, give us a report. Supposed to be frigid cold Saturday morning, so wrap up good! BTW: With the river having been up for as long as it was, and then receding as fast as it did, there will be LOTS of mud on the ramp. Take your rubber boots! (Or follow us down to Winyah!)

    I will definately plan on coming out to that meeting, been wanting to come to one of the meetings, but a lot of times I'm working out of town. I will be working around the area for the next couple of months, so should be able to make it!
