Sorry about no report last night. However, Captain Jack was extremely tired. He has been spraying trees for his exterminating business. He wasn’t home until 12 Thursday night, and he had a charter Friday morning. Overall, he says the fishing was pretty good. It was a very subtle bite on the bottom, so it was hard for newby fisherman. They caught a lot of fish, but they weren’t able to keep a lot of fish. As far as the trip, they had a great time. The Bertucci family won the trip from a school in LaPlace. So, they were able to get in a charter trip with Captain Jack. They caught LOTS of little reds, small speckled trout, croakers and baby sheepshead…Even a couple gigantic perch. The good news is..we have lots and lots of shrimp in the tanks. The shrimp problem should be resolved for now, because the shrimper is catching brown shrimp. The final talley of keepers, on yesterdays trip, was 37 speckled trout, one drum and 1 sheepshead. Captain Jack sometimes takes for granted 37 speckled trout..thinking it’s not a lot for some people…however, for the Bertucci family..it was a lot. For them..they were as happy as an avid fisherman catching 137 speckled trout. All of us full time fisherman, we take for granted all the fish we catch here in Louisiana. Captain Jack heard some news from a couple different people. Some GREAT news. He heard the core of engineers reviewed the Mardi Gras cut and decided to shut it down. WOW how tremendous that will be for the speckled trout and red fisherman! It will bring back some great spawning grounds for speckled trout that have probably been nonexistent for 8 years or so…it should help the trout population take off again! If you are coming tomorrow, we do have live shrimp. Fish on the bottom, and you should have some good luck catching some fish. So, we can’t wait to see you here at Sweetwater Marina!!! Attached is a pic of yesterday’s charter.
