Wildyaks you are completely correct. Sheriff Plankton is living up to his evil name. Don't let him spin you up. He has as many friends here as Plankton has in Bikini Bottom
As far as I know there are no public launches in the east side of the cove and I am in a position to know. There are some accesses on private property and in a gated community if you know someone there. From Lonnie Wurn it is 2 miles to the other side. If you paddle it without stopping that's a whole 30-40min.
Another alternative is to launch on the other side of the river and paddle in the north entrance to the east side if you have your big boy pants on that day but the paddle is still almost as long as from Lonnie Wurn and more challenging because of crossing the river.
Although the east side has its spots it's not some amazing promised land with honey holes chock full of fish either. Also the original poster wasn't asking for secrets, he used to fish the east in his boat as his first post stated.
The role of this site is not about how secretive you can be and is to share information. While we do not share 'X marks the spot' coordinates for specific fishing spots general fishing areas or public launches are freely available here for discussion. If you act like a jerk we WILL show you the door. OTOH if you don't like the info or banter you find here because it is out of line please let the moderators know and it will be handled.
