Fishing out of Leeville

Reply
 
I usually fish out of IDJC (island south of PAC) but am looking to scope out a new area and I have the Leeville area in mind. There is a kayak launch down there and it looks to have a lot of broken marsh options. I expect to get into some reds, but also hoping to get into some SPECs so my question is which way should I head coming out of the launch.

Should I:
(a) go directly west towards Little Lake and hit all of the cuts along the way
(b) head almost directly south following teh expressway
(c) head East then North along the edge of Lake Jesse

Also, any tips on bait, etc. is welcomed

Thank ya'll.

Well...I didn’t hear from anyone so I am just going to wing-it. Nothing new as I am not a very seasoned kayak fisherman. However, for those that are interested, I elected to head east then north and work the marsh cuts, canals, and rock jetty on the edge of Lake Jesse. Something like the attached. I have a few different lines rigged up ranging from gold spoon, black spoon, spinner, cork w/ matrix, and a double matrix shad rig so I at least have some options. Will file a post-fishing report. See y’all later...

Thanks for the tip. I thought I replied to this but didn’t see it...anyways. I was able to get into some reds but not really for specs. It’s a great area though and plan to get back as soon as I can.
