Default Anyone up for a trip to fish the live bottom off Greyton?

Thinking about heading out that way to give it a shot once we get some calmer seas, hopefully that happens before July Tenth.

Ive never been out there but hear it can be good though it probably also gets hammered this time of year.

Would also consider hitting the Paradise Hole area off of Pickens but that is a bit further out.

You guys know much about Greyton? Wife and I are staying at the state park at the end of July. No kayak, but I'll hit the beach pretty hard.

Been out there the last 2 weekends. Got some nice kings in the troll out to our numbers. If you are going to launch at Grayton be sure to stretch out really good before you pull your yak to the water. HA.

Is it a long haul to the beach? Never been so I would kind of be winging it. Where do you launch?

If you wanted to use a kayak Yellowfin Ocean Sports at the general store in Greyton rent kayaks or you could try the main store in Sea Side.

If you have a 4wd vehicle show up to the beach at sunrise and you can get away with pulling up to the water and dropping off your gear, just do not get caught. I wish I was in town otherwise I could meet y'all down there and shuttle the gear to the water, I just got a beach permit for my truck. I should be back in Aug. so if anybody wants to fish that area I will be down.

Any idea on how those yaks are outfitted? Rodholders is my main question. We are only there for two nights, and we are long overdue for some quality time, but she never wakes up before 9:00, so I could probably get a trip in from sun up til my non-kayaking arms and shoulders decide to call it a day.

You can either launch at the state park or you can launch at the access right behind The Red Bar. The Red Bar accesss will smoke you for sure. 2 weekends ago we caught 2 flounder, 1 Trigger, 1 Mahi, 18lb King, and a nice Reef shark. Last weekend we caught 2 kings, 3 bo bo's, 1 mahi and a bunch of white snapper. There arent too many boats out that way so it is good kayak territory. I have a blast out there. What kind of kayak do you have?
