Come get in on the fishing action before you have to brace for the frigid weather next week! Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be good fishing days. The water levels are rising over night tonight and will make for a few days of good fishing. Mr. Kelly, Mr. John, Mr. Danny and Mr. Paul (The Sheep Head Regulars) started the day by limiting on redfish in less than an hour today. They also caught 50+ sheep head about 8 feet deep, by the rigs, in Stone Island. All were caught on live shrimp and dead bait from Sweetwater Marina. Saturday we had reports from anglers of speckle trout in Lake John and Four Horse, so get out there before it gets too cold. And for all you duck hunters, time is coming to an end. Better hurry up and get on down here. Saturday is your deadline. 😉👍 Don’t forget we have live beautiful shrimp! 🦐 Don’t miss out on the dead bait sale we have going on this weekend!! We can’t wait to see ya’ll!!

Carley and Trey launched from Sweetwater Marina this morning and limited out on redfish, 🎣 had the largest catfish this month so far at 30 inches long and 2 green trout all caught in Oak River before noon. Carley caught the Redfish for his dad (Mr. Brent) one of Sweetwater‘s most loyal and faithful customers. 😉👍 Mr. Brent and Carley always get Tony to clean their 🐠 fish for them because Tony is the fastest and most professional fish 🐟 cleaner in Southeast Louisiana. We have plenty beautiful live shrimp! 🦐 Bailey, Tyler, and Remi (yellow lab) limited out with ducks 🦆 this morning. Remi did a great job of retrieving all the kills. It looks like the next couple days are going to be optimal for duck hunters.

Despite the beautiful sunny 😎 day we are having at Sweetwater Marina, the 🌬wind seemed to be keeping the fisherman at bay. The northern winds aren’t helping the water level either. Looks like Friday & Sunday are going to be the better days for fishing.💨 Capt. Jack had a charter today with Mr. Norman Elfer, Ms. Sandra Parker, Mr. Mike Serotta, and Davin Kieff. The winds were a bit challenging but they were a bunch of troopers and had a great time anyway. Sandra and Mike are from New England and flew down to come fishing with Norman. Friendly Super Bowl banter was had by all, because we already know the Saints are going to win 😉👍. Point Feinne was the hot spot again today for Captain Jack. The morning started off a little slow, but they caught 16 beautiful redfish and a bass, and they had a few catch and release. 🎣 Don’t forget we have fresh beautiful live shrimp. 🦐 🍤 For all you duck hunters hears a few pictures to make you want to come to Delacroix. Farley and Randy went duck hunting and had a nice little kill, Lexi did a great job of bringing them in. The next couple days are gonna be in your favor for duck hunters. Looking forward to seeing you at Sweetwater Marina. 🦆 Call Kelly for lodging, charters or boat shed rentals 504-342-2368

Captain Jack had a great time fishing with his good buddy, C.T. Williams! They headed out of Sweetwater to go catch some reds around 8am. They caught their limit of beautiful redfish. They caught a bunch of throwbacks, as well. They fished around the Point Fienne area. They fished with popping corks, for the most part. However, they did catch a few on the bottom. The red-fishing seems to be REALLY, really good in Delacroix. Everyone seems to be catching reds, when they go out on their trips. As far as the trout, it seems that more and more are showing up in the interior of Delacroix. The only problem is that the water just doesn’t seem to stay clean. There is so much river water; it is kind of hard for it to filtrate out that quickly. Today, Captain Jack & Captain C.t. Williams caught 15 keeper reds, 4 keeper speckled trout, 1 keeper bass and 2 keeper black drum, also around 20 throwback drum and tons of throwback reds. Captain Jack is looking forward to watching C.T. Williams & himself tomorrow night, on Fox8 news. It will probably air sometime around 9-10pm. Make sure you watch Captain Jack & Captain C.T. Williams catch tons of fish tomorrow night! Also, a few other anglers came in with some good reports. A couple of them had limits of reds. One group had 20 or so trout. We have plenty of beautiful, live shrimp for all of our great customers! The weather may be kind of windy for Wednesday and Thursday, but it should warm back up by Friday. The wind issue doesn’t seem to matter for the reds, but it does suck to fish in the wind.  In more news, we do have some boat sheds available. If you are interested or need more info, please call Kelly at 504-342-2368 Monday- Friday from 9am-5pm.  If you need lodging, we do have some beautiful lodges, looking out at the beautiful Delacroix water. We are located in the most convenient location, which is right across from our marina. Stay with us and launch free!

If that is the case, Captain Jack is your man! He will have you, your family, kids, everyone laughing all day. He has a great personality. He is wonderful with any age group. He knows the waters and where the fish are! Want to book a trip with the amazing Captain Jack? Call 504-342-2368 and Kelly will set you up! Don’t forget you can lodge with us, as well!

The first weekend of the New Year is upon us. Ya’ll coming fishing? We’d love to have you!! Capt. Jack braved the winds today and took his dad, Big Jack, along with an old friend Mr. Terry and his buddy, Butch fishing today in Oak River. Winds were ruff, and not for the faint of heart, but they had a great time catching 5 Redfish and a freshwater Cat. They threw back more than they kept. Capt. Jack’s dad referred to as “Smiling Jack” and Mr. Terry have been friends for over 50 years. They piloted helicopters together in the Army during the Vietnam War. Catching up was the big part of today’s fishing trip. Mr Terry and Butch drove in from Tennessee last night to come stay at Sweetwater Marina. We hope they enjoy their stay as much as we love having them! The duck hunters were killing the ducks today. We had several reports of good kills today.

Sadly, this is our last post til next year…because… ☹️ Tomorrow is 2019!!!!! Goodbye, 2018..you’ve been good..but we are hoping for a fish filled, SPECK-tabular 2019! 😂🤪 Happy New Years from Sweetwater & crew! Yesterday, Captain Jack took out his good friend Jonathon and his son! They had a great day, and they limited out on reds. Captain Jack says the amount of redfish in the marsh of Delacroix is crazy. Yesterday, the fog didn’t lift until around 2pm..which sucked! However, the fishing was still great. If you get an opportunity tomorrow, we did hear some speckled trout reports from the inside of Delacroix. On the Delacroix side of Bayou Terre aux Boeufs in Lake John, there are speckled trout. One group had 11 and another group had 33. The second group of 2 were fishing by Shell Lake. Which doesn’t sound like a lot, but it is something. The group that had 33 trout said a few days prior they fished in Little Lake..and had 47 speckled trout. The water is beautiful, and it came up nicely. It is real clear, in most spots..clear enough to catch speckled trout. So, like we said…if you get an opportunity tomorrow, come on down..the water has cleared up and warmed up. I would try Fourhorse or Lake Amadee…now that the water has warmed and cleared up…it should be pretty good fishing. Come give it a try. Again, happy New Years! We wish you all the best in 2019, and we hope to see you here at Sweetwater Marina! Pictures are from yesterday.

First off, we would like to wish happy holidays to all of our great customers. Today, at Sweetwater, the action was pretty impressive with the redfish. Everybody caught reds today, which doesn’t surprise us. Most of the regulars caught tons of reds. The good news is tomorrow is going to be an absolutely beautiful day for fishing. It will probably be one of the prettiest, in a while. For everyone coming tomorrow, the water was low this morning…but it came up a foot, since..now, it may still be a foot below normal. Wish I had more to write about specks. However, we have 3 tanks full of beautiful, live shrimp. If you get a chance, make a quick trip! Take the kids out to catch some dinner to eat, while watching the Saints! By the way…With the water being low, Fourhorse was on fire (on the North bank).  Most of the reports came from there today. We are sure there are reds biting, in all the same spots we have been posting. With the water coming up tomorrow, they should definitely bite. As we are writing this, Captain Jack just spotted a 6 point standing next to the road right before you get on the Twin Span…and he made me insert that into this post! However, we hope to see you guys before Santa comes and after! Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all!!! Remember…Come see us at Sweetwater, the marina that loves their customers! ❤️🎅🏼🎄

The holiday season is here. With all the vacation time, come visit us here at Sweetwater for some fishing. The weather will be nice this weekend. Get out of the malls and get out on the water for some relaxation, before the big guy gets here (a.k.a santa). Capt. Jack went fishing this week with his good buddy Dennis. They had a great time catching their limit of Redfish, and countless amounts of reds were thrown back. The hot spots were Shrimp Lagoon, The Easter end of Petite Lake, and Shell Lake. Redfish were everywhere. The interior waters of Delacroix are full of beautiful Redfish. If you can’t catch a Redfish, it’s because you don’t have your pole in the water. We’ve had some anglers come in with reports of decent amounts of trout last week. Captain Jack says, “When the water temperature rises, the wind is East,Southeast and the water is a little above normal, it seems the trout, that they have on the inside, really start to bite.” The Mouth of Alligator Pass by Little Lake is another prime fishing spot for trout. We are looking forward to seeing you here at Sweetwater Marina. We have plenty fresh, live, beautiful shrimp. The bait shop is open daily from 5 am till 5 pm. We have lodging available. Call Kelly to book a Charter with Capt. Jack. 504-342-2368 or for more information. Office hours are Monday-Friday from 9 am till 5 pm! Thanks in advance!
