    Very lazy start for the day and it paid off......makes me wonder why I wake up at 3am sometimes.
    Left MB at 9am with a scoop of good bait. Large and healthy dines. conditions were nice enough, not too windy or swelly. headed to the 9 and ran south to the border. didn't troll, just looking for a productive paddy. Found it around 10:30. All you could handle YT for the next couple hours. no dodos to be seen though.
    Seaswirl Striper pulled up and called on the radio. I always invite somebody in who takes the time to ask. He was the only one to ask and the rest just started charging in. No big deal, plenty of fish out there for all of us.
    back at the dock by 1:30pm with 20+ in the bag for 6 of us. didn't weigh any but most were in the 8-10 lb range. Many more released. Water was just above 75 at the paddy. Pic of my 10 newest friends who were swarming the paddy when we left(a few outside the frame of that pic). fun day on the water.

    Can't find paddies? find a boat.

    I'm sure I went home empty handed many times by driving by another boat at a stop. When seeing two or more vessels I admit I have stopped a time or two. I just want to know the metality of the guy in the second boat? Most of the time that "F"er will just barrel on up to boot.

    That whole scene is plain awkward.

    It's always fun to stop and have lunch waiting for a tide change or something and just have it in the middle of nowhere and watch boats charge up to you looking pissed off just because you're eating lunch

    This may seem like a dumb question, but what channel do you use to hail a boat already fishing a paddy? (I have found fishing chatter on several channels.) Also, when using the "standard" channel don't you basically call in all the other boats as seen in the picture.

    Not a noob, just proud of finding my own fish and respecting a sole boat on a paddy. With several boats there it seems pointless to ask permission, just fish respectfully and wet a line.

    I keep it on Channel 72 until some drunk guy gets ahold of the radio and starts blabbing on until I can't take it any longer. I was first on that paddy and happy to let the second guy join me since he asked. The rest just charged in. I didn't call the paddy numbers out on the radio, they just spotted me and came over.
    Agreed, I prefer to find my own fish. again, if somebody has the courtesy to ask if they can slide in, I'm always happy to oblige. Most don't take the time to do that though. Plenty of fish out there, just wish the dude in the ski boat would have stopped running within feet of the paddy over and over again.

    I like the idea of posting up for lunch and watching people charge up to see you eating a sandwich! that's entertaining stuff right there.

    It truly is sad. it's come to the point of pointing my rod directly at the fish I'm hooked up on in order to camouflage the fact that there's a fish hanging. As another boat does a fly by to see if a rods bent.

    Not so easy with dodos, They tend to jump out the water and give the whole show away! That is a load of boats on that stop!

    Thats funny. I fished sunday down near the 425. Saw 2 boats pulling fish on a kelp. Asked to slide in no repsonse. Bailed to find our own and had limits of tails and dodos within an hour. The fun part is finding it yourself and being the only boat around.
    Come on now guys.
