We explicitly construct a genus-3 Lefschetz fibration over S-2, whose total space is T-2 x S-2 #6 (CP2) over bar using the monodromy of Matsumoto's genus-2 Lefschetz fibration. We then construct more genus-3 Lefschetz fibrations, whose total spaces are exotic minimal symplectic 4-manifolds 3CP(2)#q (CP2) over bar for q = 13,..., 19. We also generalize our construction to get genus-3k Lefschetz fibration structure on the 4-manifold Sigma(k) x S-2 #6 (CP2) over bar using the generalized Matsumoto's genus-2k Lefschetz fibration. From this generalized version, we derive further exotic 4-manifolds via Luttinger surgery and twisted fiber sum.
