STILL CHASING REDFISH…
The redfishing remains good here in Lafitte and the trout are making appearances for brief moments.
Capt Mike Kennair and myself had the pleasure of guiding the Mullaly brothers on a recent trip. Tim and Sean joined us for 2 days of fishing. Capt Mikey handled day one and found some big reds that were schooled up in a main lake. The guys enjoyed sight-fishing for the big bruisers and watching them crush the gold spoons. They kept their limit of bulls along with some nice keepers and released several more bulls. I was up to bat for day 2 and found the reds stacked up on a rock weir for the Mullaly brothers who put a limit on ice in short order. The numbers were great and the fish were the perfect eating size. We covered some water after that and released several more fish for good measure. All in all it was 2 great days on the waters pent with good people and we look forward to future trips with these guys. Thanks again to Tim and Sean for supporting our service.

BACK AT IT DAILY AFTER OUR MID SEASON BREAK!
We had the pleasure to guide regulars Jimmy, Robin and Wayne.
The crew resides in New Orleans. Robin bakes the best homemade cookies for me every time she comes fishing. Today it was butter cookies with caramel icing. DELICIOUS! THANKS AGAIN ROBIN!
We left out of Delta Marina early with light east winds. The tide was high and beginning to fall. We had to stick and move a lot due to stained water from that blow yesterday.
We finished up at noon with 65 very fine Speckled Trout. Wayne also landed a 26 lb Jack Fish.
It was a beautiful day on the water!
BIG THANKS TO JIMMY, ROBIN & WAYNE!
WE HAVE A FEW OPEN DAYS IN NOVEMBER TO FISH WITH US!

Sorry about no report yesterday. I wanted to tell everyone that fishing yesterday was, overall, pretty good. Lots of redfish in Lake John and all the interiors by Lake John. Our regular kayak group has been catching lots of redfish across from the Marina. The real good news is that yesterday Capt. jack went in the boat with a couple of his customers…right on the point across from the Marina…and they caught 29 specks in 30 minutes! I know everyone is getting itchy. I’m not saying it’s the best trout fishing, yet. However they are starting to move up in numbers. Unfortunately, it is still hot. So grab you buddy, hook the boat up and come on down. If anyone is interested, we have come beautiful, beautiful fresh Delacroix shrimp caught the Day before last for sale. The size is perfect. 21-25 shrimp=1 pound. In other words, absolutely gorgeous shrimp. They have 4 50 pound baskets left. We aren’t breaking them apart so you have to get 50 pounds if ya gonna get them. So get with a friend or fill the freezer. Good for making shrimp poboys, shrimp stew, shrimp creole, BBQ shrimp, shrimp everything, just like Forrest Gump said “everybody loves shrimp.” Lol, so come get em. Anyways..fishing is pretty good…come give it a try. We can’t wait to see you here at Sweetwater Marina.
Don’t forget that our guys do offer the best fish cleaning service around! They will have your fish cleaned super speedy, yet with great quality! So, see Tony or Mr. Ronnie after a long day of fishing…relax, while the guys take care of cleaning your catch! I know they appreciate the customers that let them clean their fish, as do we!
The picture is from today..one of our customers!
Remember we do have non-ethanol fuel, ice, tackle, live bait, dead bait, maps, gps chips, bugspray, sunscreen, drinks, snacks, oil and anything you might need for a great day on the water!
