Hey all,

I was wondering if you are allowed to launch your own kayak, float tube, paddleboard, etc at the PCH Bridge where the Southwind Kayak Center is - I've rented a kayak from there before but that was years ago.
I have a float tube and was wondering if I would be able to launch under the bridge and fish south of there.

Is that the place where its illegal to fish from shore but in a boat is OK? Big dirt lot? If so thats where I launch.

I think you're not supposed to fish from shore where Pearsons Port is but I've heard of people doing it anyway. The other side (Lower Castaways) is legal to fish from shore at. It looks like you can actually launch from Lower Castaways too, which probably is a better idea.
