spy missions are probably the hardest missions in the game.

You can cut your fleet down even further, but even then it's completely dependent on the enviorment.

pay 5k to put all your ships in storage except one stealth ship if you can find one, or a single frigate. If there is a makeshift nav/com/sensor buoy, go break it to distract patrols away, then cross you fingers and hope you can sneak in.

I have 135 profile with the only stealth ship I can buy...still too much
I will try it with breaking something, after that maybe give up
there is also a convoy in the sector, maybe thats why so many fleets
but my mission ends 1 day after the convoy

Simply kill all the patrols in the system so nobody sees you, easy

You can also lure the ships away by doing something like an active sensor ping outside of their usual detection radius, then flying around and to the station as they are chasing after you. Not sure if it works for spy missions as then the patrols may have 'seen' you and there was a bug about that (did that get fixed this hotpatch?).
