I paddle and fluke fish all summer from an OK Trident 13, it isn't any harder paddling for fluke than any other kind of fishing. Like previously said wind is the biggest issue, I've gotten pretty good paddling one handed to slow me down, or put your legs in the water, or use a heavier jig. I haven't tried a drift sock because it just seems like a hassle, and if the wind is pushing me too fast it's likely it is too windy to be out anyway. Or sometimes the wind pushing against the tide helps you out. Everyone with a hobie seems to think fishing without peddles is so tedious and difficult but you should try it for yourself because I do it and still manage to catch plenty of fish.
