I am not to sure if they have rod holders or not. The main store in Seagrove (think I said seaside before) which is up the road would be your best bet for a request like that. The people that work there and the owners are very friendly and laid back. The shop is basically a mom and pop kayak fishing store which rents and sells kayaks (mostly Hobies) as well as live bait and gear. I bet if you talked to them they would set you up with what you need.

since you will be that way check out Barefoot BBQ in Seaside (real close to the state park), it is in one of those silver air stream trailers, nothing fancy but a bucket of beer and some nachos after some fishing always hits the spot.

I wish they had a tank of Live cigs. Not too easy chasing down bait in a yak

We rented a couple of kayaks from yellow fin over Memorial day. They were very nice people and very accommodating. Delivered them early and picked them up late. They were Hobie Quest 11 with two built in rod holders.

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?
Im in a Hobie Outback. Sounds like a good area to at least have a change of scenery. Let me know if you head out that way again, Im in Navarre.

Is it true you can drive on the beach down there? I have a Jeep and it would be MUCH easier to just drive to the surf then to haul it over the sand.

I have an outback as well. I think I will launch the west end of 30A this next time and just troll. We caught lots of nice fish in the troll. Yes you can drive on the beach if you have a walton county beach access pass. I heard of a guy that did it last weekend anyway at 530 am and nobody caught him. I will go out on sun morn if you wanna go, but I will be going out of dune allen and trying for kings.

You can get away with it if it is early. In the mid morning/afternoon just take a good look around and do not act suspect and you will be fine. I may or may not be speaking from experience. I had the wifey apply for a permit this spring and she just picked it up a few days ago. It will make things much easier. I can not wait to get home so I can put it to use.
