Paddle Plans

This got kinda lost in my previous post.

What do you guys reckon is a reasonable day paddle-plan including a meaningfull fishing session (nm/hours paddling out & back)?

I'm thinking that somewhere between one & two hours out and the same back would be about it for a round trip day fishing/paddle. Catch the tides/winds right and you're talking 3 - 6+ nm each way.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you

Only you will know the answer to this.

You will know how to progress as you become more & more comfortable with your yak.

Current is definitely your friend, or your enemy if youy have to get home by a certain time.

That gets me thinking to our two death paddles in one day... God, those were tiring. The picture of Roop paddling like mad but going nowhere in the Chatham outflow will not quickly leave my memory!

Yeah Adrian,
Only you will know how much and be conservative. An hour of hard paddling is a pretty fair workout. On some days you could paddle an hour and get no where. On other days 4 or 5 miles before work is no big deal.

Paddle with a partner.

...go with the flow...

I keep an eye on the tide tables and plan ahead...Ride the tide out and loiter, then ride the tide back.
Fighting a current the likes of which runs past the "light house" is a real stinker and destinations can always be taylored to suit conditions. Inside vs outside vs $10 lazyboy rip-rider <;////><
My whimpy arms didn't get this way on their own!?
