Headed out to get my OSV pass @ AI and enroute realized I didn't have my registration, so no bueno. Still had intent on fishing IRI and debated on just going to Choptank. Well, turned around and headed down the 404 to DE. Arrived @ IRI around 0830 to the crest of the incoming, which was @ 0815 or so. Was quite amazed that there were only a few folks out and only one other person toss'n lures. Started toss'n about 0845 and first fish on after about 5th cast. The next 30 to 45min yielded 3 blues (17-19) and two stripers. The tide slacked for a bit and started to turn. First cast, WHAM!!!! Hit like a mack truck and the fight was on. A few minutes later, with no net, I was bringing in about a 32"+ striper over the rocks. The boaters were checking me out and yelling woo hoo.... I was stoked. Bent down to reach for the the lip of the fish and flip... the bucktail popped right out of it's mouth... . It fell just between the rocks and I tried to get it but it was to tricky. I used my rod to guide it out to fight another day. Caught one other fish Sunday and rolled out. Came back out Monday a.m., around the same time to a few more folks toss'n. A lady had caught a short just before I showed up. We fished for a bit until the tide turned. She hooked into a blue about 16" and about 20 minutes later I hooked into a 20". Casted a few more times and lost a few rigs and called it a day. Until the next time IRI.
