My buddy sent me a pic he took of the OC offshore while on flight out of John Wayne AIrport....

Lots of kelp paddies 8-15 miles off. has anyone checked them out this weekend. Water is 62-63 and maybe some of these big YT have moved off and are patrolling the paddies now. ???

Early in the season paddys are usually void of much bait.When I say early season Im talking about 3 or 4 months from now.

At this point in time Im not sure if last season ever ended or when this years going to start.Im thinking the whole pacific coast has shifted north 50 to 100 miles....early season here might be what early season was off Ensenada a few years ago...just a thought.
