    I stumbeled on a 19' boat this year and have been bottom fishing all winter.... On Sunday we will will be taking it out to the US side of the 9 (no mexican license)... i have only fished offshore on charters and consider myself a BEGINNER..

    What should i expect? should i drag troll feathers, look for kelp paddies?

    I will take any help I can get!

    it never hurts to troll but not sure if you will have much luck on the banks as it is still kinda early considering the way the fish have been moving, I would check out the kelp paddies around the area stop and throw some bait for some Yellows but thats all about all i would expect going there. If you are going to make the 9 mile run why not hit up coronados you might have a bit better luck there and then move up to the 371 area and work your way down its not much further and you have a better chance of catching something as its had more recent reports then the 9 mile bank, you would have to get a mex lic and that would be another contributing factor.

    Based on the last SST that had any coverage that close to shore...the water looks very cold and green. You sure you want to stick to that plan?

    Frankly, if your boat is outfitted correctly and the weather cooperates, I'd be more inclined to head out to the 182.

    Unless the water temp and quality improve dramatically in the next few days; I'd not bother...

    Watch out for the swell and wind. I would pick a day before I go offshore on 19' 4 Winn.
    Its not so fishy on the banks... green and cold water. I don't think 9 mile bank will be productive according to all fishing reports. And its hard to find the paddy in the 2' swell, 2' wind waves.. You would want to get a mex. license before you go to Mex waters..
    Good luck.

    I agree, the water is pretty bumpy and depending what kind of boat you have (open bow, etc.) that could be real testy.

    Hopefully it will lay down and the wind will die down.

    The 209 had some pretty warm & clean water for paddie fishing if your going for YT.

    Trolloing would be the best,after finding the right water.Looking for paddys along the troll.p.s MEX officals think they own the water that close to the border its smart to have a mex permit on board.

    You absolutely need to get a Mexican License. That way you could fish the North and South 9 mile bank. Water looks off so a better idea would be Coronado's or SCI. Trolling is a good option and looking for patties is a even better choice. With your boat I would make sure that you only leave on good days (light swells and wind). On the other days I would highly consider fishing the Kelp areas (Point Loma and or La Jolla) at least in the short term.

    Allen, it's so NOT happening right now. results of yt tourney last weekend were very dismal. very good coverage of water from cat to very far south with little results. weather was up too. not much reported since then either. heard it was pretty windy today down at the beach. based on all that, we made the call to fish flatties locally tomorrow. save it up for the right time. good luck should you decide to go.
