Sweetwater Marina

Good evening everyone. Today was pretty busy at Sweetwater Marina. It was kind of windy, but we still had customers return with plenty of fish. Enough to make it a good day on the water. We always get mixed reports. But I would say..overall, it’s worth the trip. Captain Jack went out on a charter today. They did pretty well. The picture is included at the bottom. The fishing is only going to get better as we enter November. This is a great time of the year for fishing. That being said..if you get the chance, don’t hesitate. Come on down. It’s cooling down. The fish are biting. What could get better than that? Lodging and charters are booking up quickly. Most weekends are full. We have weekdays available. If you have dates in mind, please call asap.

Got a call Thursday from THE PERCH WHISPERER to confirm fishing trip for today. Fort pike at 6am, Oh YEAH, “want some perch from trip across the river”, YEP. Easy launch for a windy start and off to some protected marsh along the ICW. Always a good feeling when you have the skunk out the box before you even launch. First stop, BAM nice green trout and a throwback red. Easy technique, chunk and reel , made the black and chartreuse curly tail grub with gold spinner irresistible to green trout, reds and specks. Even though my preference would be specks, the green things have a great , bite and fight, (plus they taste good ),so that’s what we concentrated on. The longer we fished the windier it got and trolling motor operator called DONE. We had our bass limits by 8:30 and did catch and release and boxed some specks and a red till 11 or so. Water clarity unbelievably clean, we would watch the spinner coming back to the boat and when it disappeared it was because a fish had it in his mouth. Water temp 71 deg , tide falling, wind 10-15(seemed like) tide up some but much lower than last week. Finished the trip with 29 Green trout 12-15” 5 specks 12-15“ 1 keeper red 24” (5 throwback reds) PLUS previous days catch 35 perch 3 sacs 10-12” 2 cats Nighty night, going to Delacroix with ONEOFTHEPACK tomorrow.
