Two great days of fishing out of Sweetwater Marina. Capt. Jack took out his good buddy Ricky Papania. They have been fishing together for over 26 years. They’ve been rabbit hunting, deer hunting, duck hunting, alligator hunting, nutria hunting, catching frogs, you name it they did it. He is one of Captain Jack’s real friends! Yesterday they fished with the kids! Capt. Jack worked with the boys and Mr. Ricky worked with his daughter, Sophia. They ended up with 72 beautiful speckled trout and 6 sheephead. When Capt. Jack and Mr. Ricky went out today, they came in with 50 trout and 2 sheephead; they made it back in to the marina at around 10 am. Anyways, seems the fishing is getting way better in Delacroix. The water clarity seems to be getting a good bit better, however the fish are still biting in this dirty water. All jokes aside; NO LIVE SHRIMP, no fish! Technique: catching the fish requires popping every 5 seconds! Throwing out a few handfuls of smashed, dead shrimp seems to be getting them going even better. Weather report: it doesn’t look good for the next couple of days, however you might be able to get in a quick trip in the morning! The water is warming up and it’s getting wayyyyy better. So, can’t wait to see you here at Sweetwater Marina. AND DON’T FORGET to pick up some of our beautiful, live shrimp! NOTE: we just had 2 cancellations for this weekend! So, don’t wait around, call and book a room before they get booked up! The weather for the weekend looks great, so come stay here at Sweetwater and make your fishing trip as convenient as possible.
And don’t forget we are the second launch in Delacroix. We will help launch your boat, give as much advice on how to make your fishing trip the best it can possibly be, load you up with live bait and any tackle you desire, we provide our services for fish cleaning or you can use our fish cleaning tables for all the do-it-yourselfers, we can fuel you up with some of our non-ethanol gas and DO NOT FORGET to pick up a Sweetwater Shirt or Hoody. Our shirts and Hoody’s are $25 each, I would say that’s pretty cheap to represent the best marina around. We also have lodging and charters available (if you are interested, just give us a call at 504-342-2368). So head on over to Sweetwater Marina, and let the friendliest employees set you up on the right path for a spectacular fishing adventure!
