If we catch the tides and weather right theres a possibility of good fishing.Lately the weather been sort of scummy so its slacked off a little.But hopefully for us the fishing will be great.You can set the date,but for me Sunday is best because I'm always off that day.:cool:

Pappy.....I'd like to see a date in early October when I know I'll catch some fish there. I'd probably come for the weekend, stay at the Talbot Inn, fish AI Saturday then up to IRI Sunday for the clean up. That should work for me.

Catman.

Yeah I am down for that catman. I don't want to take the reins on this one Happy. I vote that sancrab or billr or happy run this one. I mean I will if I have to but am trying to concentrate on the tank one and would be too much for my plate right now. So what ya say sandcrab (the unofficial spokefisherman of IRI):D

Don't have time to wind my watch..

Since I retired and started the new job in Alexandria, I don't have half the time I need to do anything anymore - much less fishing. And - I still have 200 boxes to unpack in the new house. ;)

Sorry - I decline...but Pappy or BillR could organize the cleanup.

October 5 would kinda be best for me (Ravens buy game date, season tickets and all), but if the 14 of September needs to be, someone better have a radio or better a television that can get the game (I know probably Eagles fans that neck of the woods, but if I'm willing to make a semi-sacrifice, ao can they) because, Cleveland is coming to town. I'll just use bells and whistles while fishing since I'll probably have at least one eye on the game.

Figure IRI is what two, two and a half hours drive? If so, I'll try to get a Saturday day shift, shoot straight to AI for a spell, find a place to sleep Sat night Sun morning. Might want an earlier start (AM) so I can get home reasonable hour in case they make me work Monday morning.

Well, I usually hit AI anywhere from beginning to late September (Assateague), and usually hit the Thursday night Friday surf fishing. Boss is pretty accomadating during football season (if I work a screwy shift Saturday I'm off Sunday (my wife thinks I'm an idiot both for my football needs and fishing the beach that time of year), and didn't miss any games be them home or on TV. Last year my best believe it or not was mid-November, caught a 28" striper, red drum (maybe 18" - 20" released to the Gods of the surf) and a few wayward blue. Not real familiar with the inlet thing, but if I can hit the beach from September through March, one thing is for sure (I'm crazy, but it keeps me from going insane)weather don't bother me. Plus, October should still be "fairly" warm.

Still got my two grills from the Tank, I'm in for October 5, post directions from Assategue (I know go to OC head north but where exactly, and roughly how far)? Do the parks there mind sleeping in vehicles, or should I grab a cheap no-tell-motel?

Heck, look out cocoa, sooner or later we'll be in your neck of the woods. Maryland, Delaware New Jersey next?

Hey Hap, what are the licensing requirements? Need that info too. If need Delaware license, can pick mine up late August on my AI scoping trip. Still learning to "read the surf".
