    Hey guys,
    So I just want to get some input on local paddy fishing... I have a 16.5 ft aluminum deep v boat and have fished numerous times in the kelp beds but want to go a little further out on a flat day and try paddy hopping. Do you guys think there is any paddies close enough in that I could try it out. Let me know. Thanks
    Josh

    If its glass out you can take any size boat out! Your limited to early morning, or after 3-4. But all this can change pretty quick, you would have to do your recon work and stick to a game plan! In regards to finding paddys in close, you won't know until you search. Chances are if there is one, you would have radio in on channel 72 to talk to the valet guy and ask him where to park.

    what are you after? .. plenty of big fish inshore without paddy hoping. besides, all the yellows i've seen in the reports are small. go after the 20-40lbers.

    if you want dodo's thats a different story. but good luck spotting from a tin can.

    Yes you can do it. Watch the wind as hard as you're searching for paddy's.

    I did it yesterday morning 13 miles out of oceanside in my 16ft tin can. 13-15 miles is about as far out as my balls will let me go right now. It is DEF hard to spot paddies from this zero vantage point. If that wind kicks up INSHORE you go! Thats exactly what I had to do yesterday. Got pretty snotty pretty quick...and I didnt find shit for paddies either. Good luck.

    Get an early start run out 10 miles, turn around put out some trollers and weave your way back looking for paddy's. Make sure you run against wind and swell as best you can. That will make the ride home more comfortable andyou can run down swell. Radio-Cell phone-GPS.

    Plan your inbound route so that it is 'downhill"; i.e., with the swell/wind.

    Thanks for the input guys! I plan on trying it out pretty soon. I'll let you know how it goes. What do you guys think is a better launching area to find patties? San Diego, mission, or oside?

    You can do whatever you have the balls to do.lot of good info. Vantage point big issue
    Use common sense. Have plenty of power to jam.GPS,vests, compass ect.ect. ect. Do your research get heading, # for a game plan. Ck currents, temp breaks, give info to sig other.float plan.plot your course YOU CAN DO ITTTTTT!

    I'm sure it can be done, but PLEASE be careful. every week I hear guys on the radio calling for help. if you have never been offshore before alone in your own boat, then please find a friend who has a boat and buddy boat with them, things can get every ugly very fast out on the ocean. be safe.....
