12.07.18 Update!!

Capt Jack’s charter with his dad (Big Jack) and Mr. Carl was very exciting. They caught their limit of redfish and a bass. The trio went to Shell Lake and Shrimp Lagoon for their catch of the day.

We had a few anglers come in with reports of trout in Alligator Pass, Little Lake and Bay Andrew. They said the diversion has ended and the water is clearer and saltier. This makes for great trout fishing here in Delacroix. So to answer your question, “Are the trout moving in???”….. That’s a definite YES!!

Fresh live shrimp available.

12.04.18 Capt. C.T. Williams

Don’t forget to look for Capt. Jack on The Bigfish Report tomorrow night on Fox 8

Capt. Jack and Capt. C.T. Williams heading out looking for Redfish and some Green trout. A lil Christmas fishing. Look for the “Big Fish Report” on Fox 8, Wednesday night.

 

12.03.18 Challenging at first

Capt Jack’s charter with Mr. Pat Beck and friends was a bit challenging at first, with the strong winds this morning, meaning trout fishing wasn’t going to happen today. So they went on the Redfish hunt and that turned out to be a great success. They limited out and even threw back over 20 Redfish. In the end they brought in 22 Redfish, from around Shell Lake. They also caught 8 bass, 3 fresh water catfish, and a sheep head.

Tomorrow Capt. Jack will be fishing with Capt. CT Williams, which will air Thursday night on the “Fish and Game Report”.

Capt. Jody Stephens, Hank Mann and the Lake Oconee crew from Georgia did have success with the trout today. They had over 40 from the Lake Amadee area by the twin pipeline. We will be looking forward to seeing the guys again next year. They enjoyed lodging and launching from Sweetwater Marina for the last week.

We were also happy to host Steven and Hai on their 8th annual fishing trip at Sweetwater Marina. They said it gets bigger and better every year they come. All the guys had a great time and couldn’t wait to share some of their pictures with us.

We had another angler who limited out on Bull reds in Lake Callibas, he and his wife and son said the wind was a little strong but they enjoyed they family day out.

11.30.18 It wasn’t easy

Capt Jack said it wasn’t easy but they had a great time on his charter today. Mr. Ron, James and Tony had to go searching, but they ended up in the same place as yesterday to bring in the catch of the day. Lake Amadee side of Bayou Terre Aux Boeufs. 15 trout, 20 Redfish, and 2 Bass were caught on the Delacroix side of Bayou Terre Aux Boeufs.

The catch of the day goes to the Georgia fellas who brought in a Redfish over 36 inches long!

We had a few regular customers share a few photos of their catch. We couldn’t resist showing you of all the different catches of the day.

Sweetwater loves the awesome costumers we have.

We have fresh beautiful live shrimp!

Come visit us at Sweetwater Marina!

Call Kelly Mon-Fri, 9-5, for lodging, charters or boat shed rental 504-343-3268.

11.29.18 Are they catching?

Popular question of the week… Are they catching? Well, the answer to that is YES!

We’ve had 2 boats just come in. The guys from Georgia and Florida, who are lodging with us, came in with their limit of redfish. It’s entertaining when we ask “Where did you get your catch?…” and they respond, “Delacroix”. We love our tourists!! (They sincerely don’t know the area)

According to our Baton Rouge fellas, who came in with some really nice trout, “The secret location seems to be the south side of Four Horse just outside of the twin pipeline.”

11.28.18 Wood Boat

I love my job….. this is Kelly (office manager)at Sweetwater Marina. One of the best parts of my job is talking to everyone who calls or comes to Sweetwater.

I was having a debate about a boat the caught my eye this morning. The fuel man said the boat was aluminum or fiberglass. I insisted it had to be a wooden boat. Well late this evening the gentleman came in and I was right. Not only is it a wood boat but he made it himself in 2008 and it doesn’t have screws or nails. I was so fascinated by his technique and knowledge.

The icing on the cake was that he was the only person I talked to today that came in with trout, he caught 11 trout in Lake Amadee. He admitted he did not even try to catch redfish, he’s not a fan. I did not catch his name but I do want to thank him for his great conversation, knowledge and wisdom of his wooden boat.

11.24.18  First trip this winter with his dad

Today was captain Jacks first trip this winter with his dad and Chef Richie (our old food trailer cook). They went scouting for trout and ended up catching some really big ones! They found some clean water, and that’s where they found the big trout. Captain Jack caught the biggest trout he’s caught in 2 and a half years. It was 25.25 inches long. We have been hearing some great reports coming out of Fourhorse. There are a lot of reds and trout on the South shore of Fourhorse Lake. If I were going trout fishing, I would concentrate in Lake Robin and Lake Amadee. If I were going redfishing,I would go anywhere I want to go. They have been cleaning reds since 10am today. So..when you get a chance, come on down. The weather is looking beautiful for tomorrow. We have beautiful live shrimp. Nicole just picked up a load of shrimp. All that being said..we can’t wait to see ya here at Sweetwater Marina.

11.23.18 Family Fishing

 

Capt. Jacks charter today,with Mr. Tom and guests, had an awesome time. Limiting out on redfish and a few bass.

We had 2 boats fish out of Lake Robin killing the trout, they almost limited out today.

Everyone we spoke to today had limited out on redfish in the Lake Amadee area and Lake Batola

Adisyn went fishing today with her dad and her cousin James tagged along , she proudly posed for a picture with her catch of the day.

11.21.18 Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

  

Happy Thanksgiving from Capt. Jack, Sierra, Gracie, Kelly, Nicole, Tori, &
Tony @ Sweetwater Marina. We will be open tomorrow till 11 am. We will
have plenty Fresh Live Beautiful Shrimp. Come visit us at Sweetwater
Marina.

John & son Peyton w/ Jus-Grab-it had a blast today in Bay Gardene, they
limited out on Redfish. Payton said he had the best time ever with his dad
and that he caught the biggest fish. 😊

We had a few other anglers and their kids come in and said that “Lake John
was the place to be just outside The Twin Pipeline.” The water wasn’t as dirty, which helped them catch their limit of Redfish.

Reports of Trout biting around the Lake Amadee area are coming in. One angler came in with 26 trout (oops 😉) from there this morning.

Looks like the fish are in Delacroix, come see us at Sweetwater Marina and
show us your catch, so we can share your memories on Facebook, Instagram,
and Twitter.

11.20.18 Beautiful Fishing Weather 🦃

 

Capt. Jack had a lot of success with red fish on his charters yesterday & today. “Dr. George” (Capt. Jacks personal hook extractor) and guest caught 25 reds, in the Lake Batola area, then went trout fishing in Lake Amadee and got 26 trout. With the weather conditions today, they only wanted to fish for reds and they limited out.

Redfish are everywhere in the interior marshes of Delacroix. We’ve been hearing great reports of red fish in Grand Lake. Four Horse seems to be the place to fish on the south bank, for speckle trout mixed with a lot of nice red fish.

Over all the trout are showing up in Delacroix, but we are having color issues with dirty water in the great trout fishing areas. The water needs to clear up, it’s too fresh, and the dredging of the pipeline seems to be an issue also.

Weather is looking better, and the winds are laying down. It should be great fishing for the Thanksgiving holidays.

Come visit us at Sweetwater Marina.

We will have plenty Fresh Live Beautiful Shrimp.😉

11.17.18 Great Fishing

There was some great fishing today at the marina. Mostly all redfish. The trout reports haven’t been that great lately, however today they got a bit better. One group was fishing in Round Lake and caught 30. Lake Amadee and Lake Robin seem to be action packed. On Captain Jacks charter today, they caught their limit of reds..then, they caught a BUNCH more that they threw back. We don’t know how many were thrown back..it’s crazy how many reds there are. The water is clean in Lake Batola, and the redfish action is pretty high in that area. It is ashame that we aren’t catching the number of trout we normally catch this time of the year. That would be due to the Mardi Gras pass and all the fresh water coming through. We won’t get onto that subject again. We are expecting even better reports tomorrow..for trout. The weather will be great tomorrow, light winds, good temperature and the water has already warmed up a bit. If you are a trout fisherman, tomorrow is looking good. Also, they are definitely doing work in the Twin pipeline. The pipeline has floated up in several places in the pipeline canal, so they are dredging underneath the pipeline, resinking the pipeline and then putting mud on top of the pipeline. They are almost finished. They are almost all the way past Lake John. Once they get finished with that mess, the water should clear up beautifully. Then, you all can get back in your fav fishing spot here in Delacroix. If you are going trout fishing tomorrow, head towards Round Lake, Lake Amadee and Lake Robin..those waters seem to have a few more fish. As far as live shrimp, we ended up getting a delivery this morning. We still had a few people that didn’t get to get live shrimp. We are very sorry to those customers. Nicole is on her way to pick up a load! We will have plenty for tomorrow.

All that being said..
We can’t wait to see ya here at Sweetwater Marina, the marina that loves their customers!

11.16.18 Capt. Jack Fishing

Once again, some great fishing down here in Delacroix! Captain Jack went out on a charter, again, today! He took out Mrs. Shannon & Mrs. Melinda. They had a blast reeling in the reds. They went fishing from spot to spot from around 8am till 11am. It took a bit for the fish to start biting. When they hit their third spot, the reds were on fire! However, Captain Jack told them some good advice…”it wasn’t the spot..it was just when the fish decided they were going to bite.” To prove himself and betting the two gals..they went back to their original spot, and the fish were biting! His theory proved correct. Obviously, we aren’t surprised. Captain Jack knows what he is doing, when it comes to fishing!

We’ve heard some crazy news today. A customer came in and said it looked like they were taking out the center portion of the Twin pipeline (dredging) with heavy equipment. He said the water was muddy all around there. We haven’t heard that from anyone else. Captain Jack has not been fishing that way, so we don’t know how true this is.

Captain Jack wants to say “what a shame..all this fresh water coming through the Mardi Gras pass. The river is 12.2 ft tall. It has been coming through all summer long and now all fall. It’s just destroying the saltwater estuary. It is destroying all fishing in Delacroix. The real sad thing is it is destroying trout populations! Not only trout..Crabbers are suffering, fisherman are suffering and shrimpers are suffering. Someone put an end to this! It’s so sad riding down Oak river..marsh that used to be 4-5 ft tall..now 1.5ft tall with little yellow flowers growing on vines(sure there is a name for it..that we don’t know) smothering the life out of our Marsh because of all this fresh water. This will only result in major coastal erosion problems in the very near future! We need to use the marsh land we have left to create new marsh…take sediment from the river, pumping it through pipelines up to the existing marsh that is left and rebuild from there…Instead of wiping what we have left now off the face of the earth..and then trying to create new land with sediment from the river from these new diversion projects..which will take years upon years..my children and yours will not see this land built..I guess I’m just venting. It’s just truly sad. It doesn’t matter what any of us say..the government is going to do what they want to do. It just sucks that us sportsman’s that enjoy our great outdoors and/or make a living off of it..just have to watch it go away so rapidly..it’s scary! I hate writing things like this. I just hope someone reads it that can do something about it and helps us out..we matter too!”

IMPORTANT-READ THIS IF NOTHING ELSE:
We have some bad news for our customers. Our shrimp supplier skipped out on us today. That being said..we will have limited live shrimp tomorrow. We advise you to stop and pick some up on the way. We tried buying some shrimp from places around, and they all said they have limited live shrimp for themselves. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause some of our customers. We try our very best to have it all for you guys, but not everyone is 100 percent 100 percent of the time. We are still trying to get in contact with our shrimp man and hope to get some live shrimp sometime tomorrow. We do have SOME shrimp. We are going to try to be fair with everyone and spread the shrimp among our customers. When we run out, there is nothing we can do. We are very sorry.

One last tip:
As far as speckled trout, no large number can in today. I would advise you, if you are going trout fishing tomorrow, to try lake Amadee and Lake Robin areas.

Remember, can’t wait to see ya here at Sweetwater Marina!

Picture is from Captain Jacks charter today!

11.15.18 Phenomenal red fishing

Phenomenal red fishing today, despite the frigid cold 33 degree weather! Captain Jack went out this morning with his charter, and they caught their limit! Then, he went back out for Captain Chris with a different group of guys in a spur of the moment trip, and they caught their limit again! Both groups caught plenty of extras that they threw back! Tomorrow is looking like it’s going to be a great day for fishing. The winds are looking light..around 5-10 mph. If you are coming trout fishing, I would advise coming after 9am. The water will warm up a bit and clear up. So, the trout fishing should be great mid day. This weekend is looking awesome, as well. It’s supposed to be sunny, pretty and a lot warmer. The water chilled down with this last front and probably pushed trout deeper into the interior of Delacroix, which should make for some awesome fishing! If you get an opportunity to come, come on down! We will write another fishing report tomorrow, after Captain Jack gets back in from his charter! We have plenty of live shrimp for tomorrow and the weekend! Nicole is on her way to pick up a load, as we speak! Stay tuned for tomorrow nights report. We will update you on hotspots! Some hotspots for speckled trout, prior to the cold front, was Fourhorse Lake, Round Lake, Lake Campo, Potto Cabalo, Bay Shallow and heard some out of Lake John. They were catching LOTS of trout on the other side of Bayou Terre Aux Boeufs..Lake Amadee, Lake Robin..etc. all the areas mentioned should be good fishing tomorrow. See you tomorrow after 9am! Pictures are from Captain Jacks charters today!

11.09.18 Some Good News

Sorry about no report yesterday. We have some good news. A lot of speckled trout came in yesterday! Bad news is..they won’t be easy to catch tomorrow. It’s probably still worth the trip. Delacroix’s standards for winter fishing is about to happen soon! Tomorrow is the opening day, the big day, for duck season. We are looking forward to seeing all our duck hunters. We heard they’ve had a few ducks here and there. Put your cold weather gear on..and come get you some quackers or some scales! If you could find a place to tuck away out the wind, you’ll probably catch some nice specks or reds! We are going to get a load of live shrimp tonight; so, we will have plenty live bait for everyone tomorrow! See ya this weekend!

11.04.18 Pretty Busy

Hey it’s us from Sweetwater. It was a pretty busy weekend here at sweetwater. Lots of reds came in Saturday morning. A good amount of trout came in Saturday evening. Pretty much the same kind of action today. It was a bit windier this morning. It is looking like we may have some rain in the forecast for this weeks weather. If you get a chance with some good weather, I would advise you to come down. It is worth coming. I hope to see you down here. We will update you tomorrow with some specifics. We will try to get some photos..we know we have been depriving y’all of them a bit. Hope to see ya here at Sweetwater Marina, the marina that loves their customers!

11.02.18 Geaux Tigers

What a crazy day today. The wind was whippin! A few small numbers of speckled trout came in. Lots of reds! Good news: the wind has already laid down quite a bit in Delacroix, which should make for some pretty good fishing for tomorrow. The speckled trout should be biting tomorrow once the wind lays down. If not, the reds are there for sure! Sorry for the few customers that we had to ration shrimp for! We won’t have problems tomorrow. We have a load in the tank right now, and we are on our way to get another load. Hopefully we will see a lot of happy customers tomorrow. Warning: trout will prob be a bit slow still..but picking back up by mid day. Reds are in full action..like we said! We hope we see ya before the big LSU game tomorrow! Definitely say your prayers for the Tigers..we need to win tomorrow!!! We will write a report tomorrow night to let y’all know how it’s looking for Sunday, which should be way better! And…GEAUX TIGERS 🐯💜💛

11.31.18 Trick or Trout

http://www.fox8live.com/sports/bigfish/

10.30.18 The redfish

Real busy today and yesterday here at Sweetwater! Overall, the fishing today was about a 5 on a scale of 1-10. Yesterday, it was a 4 on a scale of 1-10. Tomorrow will probably be the last day of good fishing before the weather sets in. The redfish seem to be biting pretty good still. Not as good as when the water was high. Captain Jack fished with Captain CT Williams today. They ended up with around 25-30 specks. Wasn’t that great could have been worse. They went to go catch reds. Popped some off, caught 1 and missed a few others. They couldn’t get a redfish out of the trip. It was definitely a pretty good speckled trout show. The show will air tomorrow sometime on the Fox 9pm news! So, check out Captain Jack and Captain CT Williams! Don’t really have much great news tonight. One of the fishing guides came in with 92 trout today. That’s about all I can tell you guys. Come see us before this bad weather kicks off. We can’t wait to see you here at Sweetwater Marina!

10.05.18 Starting October off right!!!

We had a great week here at Sweetwater Marina!!

The redfish are practically jumping in the boats, and they are huge. If you aint catchin’em, its cause you’re not @ Sweetwater Marina.

The places to catch this week have been Four Horse Lake & Lake Campo. All the pics & videos I have been posting this week prove that all you need to do is launch the boat.

Zac Reyna took a break from LSU Vet School to do some Kayak fishing with his parents and little cousins hat came from Arkansas. They love coming to Sweetwater Marina, and they said the trip was a success.

09.21.18 “Wild” weekend

Capt Jack had a charter today with Mr Jerry and his son in law. They ended up with 35 speckle trout, 7 Redfish and 7 sheep-head.

We went out to the rigs,on the outside. The water at the wreck is good clean trout water.

Good news is the trout are starting to show up in the interior of Delacroix .

Chef Richie caught 17 trout fishing in Lake Amadee.

Some fish were caught at Lake Campo and around “The pin tail flat area” and some trout came into the inside.

We also welcomed Wild Bill & his wife from Deadliest Catch. It was a pleasure to have him here at Sweetwater Marina.

09.14.18 Redfish are begging

Capt.Jack said come on down to Sweetwater Marina . The Redfish are practically begging to be caught. They are so prevalent and abundant, it’s unbelievable. He did charters Thursday and Friday and was blown away at the abundance of Redfish. Most of the fish came 12 foot off the bank by Oak River

Lots of the anglers that came to the Marina with Redfish said they were stupid (meaning everywhere)

Good news on speckle trout. We had a few more anglers come in with at least 30 speckle trout . The speckle trout are starting to come in. More report of trout are being reported on the inside .

The good areas to catch speckle trout and white trout , are by Bay La Fourche ,Lake Fausan , Lake Amadeus, Lake Robin and also Lake Calebasse

Well we made it through the storm, completely unharmed. Not even a blade of grass out of place . What a major inconvenience that was. We had to move everything and get ready, but better safe than sorry.
 
If you like catching Redfish come on down. The Redfish are 1000% jumpin in the boat. From upper to lower Delacroix you can fill up your ice chest with beautiful Reds
 
Haven’t had any reports on trout this week, but Capt. Jacks goin out tomorrow and will give the latest updated report. Stay tuned tomorrow and he will let you know if and where they are biting.
 
Probably closer to the inner bays in Delacroix the water is good and salty now.
 
If your off work tomorrow. It’s your best chance to fish. Come on down to Sweetwater and come do some Red-fishing.

08.18.18  Chance of Fishing, in the weather forecast  🙂

Believe it or not, today was a pretty busy day down at Sweetwater! Even though the weather was right offshore (where everyone wanted to fish) today, a few boats still ventured out. Some went as far as Breton Island and had pretty good success. Yesterday, a group of three that went to Breton Island had 60 trout. A couple guys went out to Stone Island; they caught 17 trout, but the weather caught them just as the fish were really starting to bite. They got nervous and came back to the dock. They were able to fish about 45 minutes, and that was a wrap. We had some reports from Bay Gardine from some guys that decided they couldn’t make it out to Stone Island. They caught a limit of reds and 6 speckled trout, before the weather set in on them. They said that they were on a decent trout bite, until the wind got strong. When that happened, the trout went away. It looks like the rain forecast is calling for less of a chance of rain for tomorrow than we had today. If you get a chance to come, it is worth coming. The fishing has gotten better…especially the trout fishing. You can’t expect to catch the trout with thunderstorms and rough weather. We hope to see you tomorrow! As we are writing this report, Captain Jack, baby Gracie & I, Sierra, are heading to pick up the live bait for all of our wonderful customers tomorrow. Don’t let these beautiful live shrimp go to waste! Come get a bucket full and go have some fishing fun!

ATT: All you duck hunting boys and gals! Duck season is approaching! If you would like to stay here at Sweetwater, please call and book now! We will fill up, and you will be sorry! We are the most convenient, comfiest, most reasonably priced place around! Come check us out! See ya soon!

08.17.18 Fishing tips for this weekend

Hey, we still here at Sweetwater Marina. There isn’t much going on right now, with the back to school season. There is some good news, we have had over 10 boats a day with decent amounts of Speckle Trout. We had an angler come in from Black Bay with 72 Trout, and other fisherman say Black Bay is the place to be for Specks. Over all 72 Trout sound pretty good to me.

As far as Red Fish go, stay on the inside, and fish close to the banks, Four Horse Lake & Fish a few few from grass mats @ Skippy Lake are some red fish areas to go to this weekend (Yes, that a lil tip for ya and free lining is still the trick to catch fish.) The tide range looks good for this weekend, so come fishing.

08.13.18 – Big Fish Report FOX 8 News

Click link to see video clip: Fox News Video

08.08.18

Capt Jack went fishing yesterday with Capt CT Williams of Fox 8, they had a great trip, caught a bunch of beautiful trout, a lot of the fish were caught on live shrimp some on plastic, but the tick of the day was free lining your live shrimp, they were using trouble hooks tied to the end, fluorocarbon leader a very small split shot above the trouble hook about 8 inches, and the fluorocarbon leader was about 2 ft in length. (for those who don’t know what free lining means…. its not using weights or popping a cork, so the shrimp swims more naturally to the bottom) .

The best news of the day, is that angles went out to Stone Island and the catch speckle trout, 1.5 to 3 lb trout. A little past Stone Island had some good action too. (and this is for the caller who called Kelly yesterday inquiring about Stone Island. Fishing is good (not the best) but definitely worth going out there for.

Like Capt Jack said, the conditions aren’t the best, but its a lot better and the water is a lot saltier and cleaner and getting better every day.

We do have plenty of beautiful live shrimp. Tomorrow if you are interested in catching fish..come on down! If you get an itch to catch some fish…we can’t wait to see you here at Sweetwater. If you can’t back your boat in, or don’t want to, we will do it. If you want a ride to and from your vehicle, we can do that. If you want a boat shed, we can provide you with one.

01/04/2016 Fishing Report

January 2016 by CaptainJack

We launched about 20 boats today at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island and from what Tony said it seemed like a lot of those folks came back with nice numbers on the Speckled Trout. Live shrimp or Matrix Shad on the bottom are the winning combo right now. As for where, off of Oak River between Pencil Pipeline and Orange Bayou seemed to be the spot today. We would also like to start the year off by mentioning again what a great deal SEATOW is. 504-301-4545. Breaking down or getting stuck is never convenient, but having SEATOW makes it less of an inconvenience. But more than that, especially with this cold weather, it’s a safety thing. It’s good piece of mind to know that someone will be there to get you with out too long of a wait. They are familiar with the area and they have all the equipment that might be needed to get you back home Safe. So come on down to see us and catch some fish at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island, and while you are here ask to check out our lodging. It’s the best deal in Delacrolix – sleeps 6, free launch, kitchenette, cable, wifi. BBQ pit – all for just $159 a night. Just wake up and fish. Whatever you need to make your fishing trip a success, we probably have it in our baitshop, including maps and helpful tips from Mr. Ronnie and Tony and pick up a Sweetwater sweatshirt too keep you warm. Anything we can do to help make your trip fun, successful and safe – just ask. We will have plenty of live shrimp and we would love to see you, so come on down to Sweetwater, the marina that loves their customers. And remember we are the second launch.

For tomorrow it’s supposed to be sunnier and warmer, so the fishing should be even better than today. And for anyone interested in catching some Redfish – one of our customer’s who is staying with us in our lodging at Sweetwater Marina has done really well for the last few days catching over 25 Reds a day using only artificial bait. They are visiting us from Florida and said they can’t believe how great the Redfishing is here.

12/31/2015 Fishing Report

December 2015 by CaptainJack

Capt. Jack went on his first hunt of the year this morning and unfortunately it wasn’t as good as his first day back fishing was on Tuesday. Thanks to Jeff and Beau, the richest guys on Delacroix Island, for taking him. They shot at more ducks than they got (especially Jack), but a fun day hunting with good friends is a great way to end 2015. 2015 has been a great year at Sweetwater Marina and that is in no small part because of our amazing customers. It was a difficult year at times, but thanks to all of you and our amazing staff at Sweetwater Marina we came through it with flying colors and can’t wait for 2016. Hopefully for 2016 the El Niño pattern will lighten up so we can get back in on some of that Speckled Trout fishing that the marshes of Delacroix Island are so well known for. The Trout are here, we just need the weather to cooperate a little. HAPPY NEW YEAR and we hope to see you soon. And while you are here ask to check out our lodging. It’s the best deal in Delacrolix – sleeps 6, free launch, kitchenette, cable, wifi. BBQ pit – all for just $159 a night. Just wake up and fish.

12/15/2015 Fishing Report

December 2015 by CaptainJack

Today Capt.Jack had the pleasure of fishing with his great friends Dr. Jimmy Heintz, his son Dr. Jonathan Heintz, his daughter and Dr. Amy, and on a scale from 1 – 10 today was about a 5. It was Capt. Jack’s first time fishing since his surgery 3 weeks ago and he couldn’t have asked for a better group to share it with. They set out from Sweetwater Marina at about 8:15 and made it back by around 2:15 with 80 Specks and 2 Fresh Water Cats. They moved around a lot, catching the first 60 Trout scattered all over and on the way back in they spotted a bunch of boats in Little Lake and stopped and caught about 20 2lb plus Trout in 30 minutes. Most of the fish were caught on live shrimp and matrix shad about 2 1/2 feet under a popping cork. The water wasn’t too good today and that’s probably why they had to move around so much. Timage imagehe weather isn’t looking too great for the next couple of days, but if it isn’t too windy and there is no lightening you should give it a shot. And while you are here ask to check out our lodging. It’s the best deal in Delacrolix – sleeps 6, free launch, kitchenette, cable, wifi. BBQ pit – all for just $159 a night. Just wake up and fish.

12/14/2015 Fishing Report

December 2015 by CaptainJack

The last couple of weeks have been just unbelievable and we are happy to report that there is no end in sight to this amazing streak of fishing. Today overall was a little slower than normal for the last two weeks, but that just means lots of 1/2 limits as opposed to limits. Out of 28 groups launched, 2 groups had limits. Most reported having a mixed bag of Trout, Reds and Black Drum with quit a few reporting half limits. The problem today seemed to be cloudy water because of the wind yesterday. But for tomorrow the forecast looks great for fishing. Light wind, no rain and mild temps. After the rain passes through Wednesday and Thursday some cooler weather should be on the way and that should make for another unbelievable weekend. So start planning . your week end trip now.

12/09/2015 Fishing Report

December 2015 by CaptainJack

Believe it or not, from what we heard today the fishing was Spectacular again today on Delacroix Island. The reports were almost the same today as yesterday and the day before. The trout are every where scattered throughout the Delacroix marshes. Standout spots again are Oak River, Pointe Fienne and Skippy Lake. And live shrimp under a popping cork is the bait to use. We aren’t saying you can’t catch any fish on plastic, but live shrimp really is the best bait to be using. Hopefully Capt. Jack will be out of the hospital in the next couple days and back at Sweetwater by sometime next couple of weeks. But until then we will keep checking in with our great Captains, our staff and some of our regulars to keep bringing you reports from Sweetwater Marina.
