Haha when I did I say it was my paddy? I said the googan rolled up, in and on without even asking. If I can find a paddy with no tower I'm sure your buddies priceless can do the same unless they're just lazy.It does look like he's on the other side of "your" paddy....
Happened to me today again , but worse.
We found a paddy, line shy fish it seemed and like unknown fisherman described we had to chum hard, long soak and chill.
We finally get 1 yft hanging, I got short bit, here comes the school behind the boat through the chumline, and what happens next an IDIOT charges the kelp within 5 feet, starts throwing iron and that was that. All that for one fish. We chased tons of bird schools today, most kelps were dry and finally got some to go.
But lemme guess "Soviet bear" not my paddy and the idiot was entitled cuz it's not my ocean.
