Some good fishing the last few days out of Sweetwater! Seems like the customers have been catching lots of reds. There are scattered trout reports. Overall, I think there is enough action with the reds to make it all worth while. Captain Jack fished the last two days with his 6 buddies from a Georgia and Florida. The last two days they caught 60 reds and released BUNCHES !!! Here we go again. Not even June..and our first tropical threat of the year. Hopefully, the lord will spare us here in Saint Bernard Parish. We pray for everyone in the storms path. We want to give a shout to Rummel students that chartered 4 boats yesterday! Attached is a pic from Captain Jack’s charter today and pics of the Rummel students from yesterday! Come see what the fishing is doing here in Delacroix. You won’t regret it. We can’t wait to see you here at Sweetwater Marina!

This past Wednesday and Thursday I had the pleasure of guiding good friends and customers from Indiana Mr Fred Rude, Dr Jerry McClarren, and their buddies Mick and Billy.
We gave the speckled trout a try on day 1 and worked hard to put a decent box of fish together for the guys. We fished the Barataria Bay area hitting a bunch of spots to put 50 specks on ice. We used Capt Lane’s Ghost Minnows in limetreuse under popping corks to catch the silver wonders.
Day 2 was more of a meat trip as we fished the marshes east and west of Lafitte in search of redfish and puppy drum. We used fresh shrimp under a popping cork to do most of the damage on the hard pullers. A couple nice reds were caught on H&H gold spoons fished in grassy areas.
All in all it was another great 2 days on the water for me and my good friends from Indiana. Many thanks to Mr Fred and all on the trip for their repeat business and for all they do for our service. I look forward to their return!

ARKANSAS CREW HAVE ANOTHER GOOD MORNING!
We left out very early from Delta Marina.
Made one stop but the bite was slower due to the tide slacking for the next couple days.
Joe, Matt and Cody put a nice catch on the deck.
BIG THANKS TO JOE, MATT & CODY!
We will be off the water for the flip flop tide today and tomorrow. Also will be off the water a bit longer due to this storm threatening the Gulf Coast.
FISHING WILL BE GREAT AFTER THIS STORM!
WE STILL HAVE SOME OPEN DAYS IN JULY THROUGH NOVEMBER!
