Capt. Jack fished with his father and their good buddy that they have hunted with, in Lafitte, for years! They left the dock for around 7am and came back in for around 10:30am, before the weather got bad! They caught 65 beautiful speckled trout! They didn’t have time to fish for anything else due to trying to get back to the dock..before the weather set in! The weather should clear up by Friday, so this weekend should be the perfect opportunity for you to get out here for some of this great fishing action! The fishing in Delacroix has really been spectacular..you won’t regret a trip to Sweetwater! Also, we do have plenty of live shrimp and minnows! When you come this weekend, don’t forget to try out the food trailer! Chef Richy is in there every Friday, Saturday and Sunday preparing some delicious pulled pork sandwiched, burgers and shrimp poboys with fries and a drink! So, try it out!
