Irish Creek on the Choptank?

It's NW of the mouth of the Tred Avon. It looks tricky to get in and out of. Has anyone done this? I draw 4'3". Thanks.

Chart: EarthNC

Did you decide to go? I'm headed over that way sometime next week. Looks like a little bit of a challenge, but doable. I'll let you know how it goes if you haven't made the trip yet.

Snipp, sorry for the slow reply.

I opted for Baby Owl Cove off Leadenham Creek which is off Broad Creek. Very nice anchorage.

I'd still like to try Irish Creek sometime. Let me know if you gave it a go.

Prince Buster,
I did go but had a dickens of a time finding enough water to get in. The markers are also radically different from the charts. I think I might give it a miss with a 4'3" draft. (I use about 3'3".)
