Game plan:start at upper hidden work our way south.
Started out slow for us.Trolled our way south for a few hours.Paddys seem to be hard to come by.
Trolled and trolled south.

4th paddy of the day just a few miles south of hidden and approx. 60 miles from the point 10:30 AM...BINGO!
All the dorado you could shake a stick at turning into wide open football Yf on this cookie cutter paddy.Full limits for three.
That's all she wrote.
One of the dorado was worth posting pic....all in all today turned out to be quite wonderful.

Heard of someone losing paddy full of dorado on the radio.I too have lost many a paddy,especially if its overcast ,choppy and there is a 15 knot breeze.I included a pic of what we do when we find a paddy...orange baloon can be seen from a mile away.

P.S. Thank you fish dope.
They did report that from the hidden down to the upper 500 that lots of paddys were loaded with dorado and yellowfin.This was a major factor that drove me further south with the confidence that I would find success.

The paddy we found today had the biggest school of dorado I have ever seen in my life.....hundreds and hundreds.

Thanks for the report. I was wondering when someone was going to go pass the local weekend chaos and hit that area. I thought about it last week, but stayed close like everyone else. I think I've caught most of my BFT and Dorado between the Upper and Lower, especially when I could find one of those almost-a-virgin paddies to stop on.
