I was there memorial day weekend also in a 22 ft blue cc. Fished out of roosevelt inlet on my own on Saturday through Monday. Caught plenty of dink stripers in the inlet and a little better grade fish (24-28) inches by the outter wall. I caught a few small spike trout near roosevelt but have no idea where the large trout are. I eventually figured out a pattern where the spike trout (12-14inches) were hiding. In roosevelt about 200 feet east of the last pole marking the underwater jetty. It's been slow trout fishing there for me for three years now but 2001 was outstanding.

Fished IRI on Tuesday after the holiday crowd was gone and the fishing was fantastic. Caught all the 1-3 pound blues under birds you could want in the morning on a 7wt fly rod with an intermediate line. Later jigged up some stripers and larger blues in the same area, ocean side. Drifted an eel inside the inlet and caught a 35" blue. Also jigged the incoming in the middle of the inlet and caught a decent blue or striper to 28 inches on ever single drift. Lots of action but again, NO TROUT!!

I'm going to try again this weekend. Not sure if I'm going to use the kayak near henlopen or drag the boat down. I caught plenty of blues and decent stripers in the shallow water near Cape Henlopen also a few weeks ago. Nothing over 26 inches but steady action on decent fish.
