Not to answer for D3Smartie, but I’ve lived above Carkeek for 30+ years.
There are cutts to be caught there. I’ve also caught coho and blackmouth off the beach there.
I used to fish it all the time but probably haven’t fish there in 20+ years, even though the beach is a five minute walk from my house.
I just find myself driving to fish as there are much better places on the sound for cutts and coho.
Too many people At Carkeek on the beach for my liking and some strange individuals.
Out of a boat should be fine, just watch the winds as it is pretty exposed and you’ll be a good rowing distance from Shilshole.
