I am going to take the kayak to Lighthouse Lakes 13-15th. If weather reports hold out looking at 15-25 MPH winds. Once you get into the lakes do you get any wind cover or will you be battling wind all day?

I have fished LHL a lot . It's a great place with a lot of grass and shallow water but not much wind cover.
crossing the channel can be a little tricky on windy days. But It's South Texas and the wind always blows

Be extremely careful. There's an outgoing afternoon tide all 3 days, and the channel creates a pinch point making the outgoing tidal waters stronger. Combine that with any kind of meaningful SSE wind, and conditions become treacherous quickly, especially the closer to low tide you get. Personally, I wouldn't even try it. I've had one too many hairy experiences (in a Hobie no less), and absolutely wouldn't try those exact conditions again. I'd launch at the kayak launch across from South Bay and fish the East Shore to Brown & Root or South Bay. Be VERY mindful of the wind, and consider that it usually blows hardest mid-late afternoon. Trust your gut. If you hear alarm bells going off in your head, listen, and get off the water immediately. Wear a life jacket.


I'm not a chick.
