    fun fishin

    Allen (AGFISH) joined me for a trip to the WALL. We chose a close interior trip in case the high wind prediction turned out to be correct. Started at South Shore harbor at the Chef at 6:30 or so and first cast in a cut off ICW. Allen caught and released a small green trout and we continued to the wall, skipped my usual stop in the corner to try some deep water before the wind made boat handling a chore. Lots of cast and retrieve only produced 1 flounder and 3 keeper specks. Moved down to some rocks near the “no hot water canal“ started catching specks every cast, all 11” long. Kept at it and finally started with keepers till the catching ended, couple of more spots tried at the rocks near the wall and ICW and home we went 1pm. Clarity 7-8 all places we tried, falling tide to start and incoming at go home time, started dead low. ESE Wind 5 early, 10-15 later. Most fish caught on lemonhead matrix on a ¼ oz round white head tight lined. Few nice ones lost to equipment failure, reverse lock failed when I started to haul a speck over the side, unwinding and tangling the line around the reel, tried to hand line him but helplessly watched as he slowly parted ways with the jig head. Best bite of the day ended when the knot broke at the jig head, then the trolling motor seat broke and cheated us out of an hour of fishing, I can’t standup and fish(sciatic nerve or something) Might be time for some maintenance. Bad weather coming is good for something. Finished with 14 specks 12-15” Many 11” specks returned to grow 1 17” flounder.

    Sweetwater Marina

    Two great days of fishing out of Sweetwater Marina. Capt. Jack took out his good buddy Ricky Papania. They have been fishing together for over 26 years. They’ve been rabbit hunting, deer hunting, duck hunting, alligator hunting, nutria hunting, catching frogs, you name it they did it. He is one of Captain Jack’s real friends! Yesterday they fished with the kids! Capt. Jack worked with the boys and Mr. Ricky worked with his daughter, Sophia. They ended up with 72 beautiful speckled trout and 6 sheephead. When Capt. Jack and Mr. Ricky went out today,  they came in with 50 trout and 2 sheephead; they made it back in to the marina at around 10 am. Anyways, seems the fishing is getting way better in Delacroix. The water clarity seems to be getting a good bit better, however the fish are still biting in this dirty water. All jokes aside; NO LIVE SHRIMP, no fish! Technique: catching the fish requires popping every 5 seconds! Throwing out a few handfuls of smashed, dead shrimp seems to be getting them going even better.  Weather report: it doesn’t look good for the next couple of days, however you might be able to get in a quick trip in the morning! The water is warming up and it’s getting wayyyyy better. So, can’t wait to see you here at Sweetwater Marina. AND DON’T FORGET to pick up some of our beautiful, live shrimp! NOTE: we just had 2 cancellations for this weekend! So, don’t wait around, call and book a room before they get booked up! The weather for the weekend looks great, so come stay here at Sweetwater and make your fishing trip as convenient as possible. And don’t forget we are the second launch in Delacroix. We will help launch your boat, give as much advice on how to make your fishing trip the best it can possibly be, load you up with live bait and any tackle you desire, we provide our services for fish cleaning or you can use our fish cleaning tables for all the do-it-yourselfers, we can fuel you up with some of our non-ethanol gas and DO NOT FORGET to pick up a Sweetwater Shirt or Hoody. Our shirts and Hoody’s are $25 each, I would say that’s pretty cheap to represent the best marina around. We also have lodging and charters available (if you are interested, just give us a call at 504-342-2368). So head on over to Sweetwater Marina, and let the friendliest employees set you up on the right path for a spectacular fishing adventure!

CHARTER INFORMATION: The charters run up to $750.00 for up to 4 anglers for a full day. On the charter, we provide equipment, bait, licenses, if necessary, fish cleaning and the packaging of the fish. The only thing you need to bring is your food, drinks, sunglasses, sunscreen and an empty ice chest to bring home your catch. Our captains specialize in in-shore fishing; usually, the catch consists mostly of Speckled Trout, Reds, and Bass. For more information on lodging and charters or to make reservations, please call us at 504-342-2368. A small deposit will hold your reservation.

    Lake P Team Jo-Jo continuing education

    TEAM JO-JO……………………… Fishing just seems to come me way, me thinking about today Sunday, what to do, where to go, when me get an email, you want to go fishing tomorrow in Lake P, Big Andrew offering to take me out in his boat Always is it name. Me shot back an email be at your house at 6:00 Am sharp, meet you at your dock in the rear of the house says me.   SIGNS:  
    • Sunday trip was great, catching was a little off, plus it was a time limit trip, had to be back early.
    • Granddaughterofthepack, did great in her gymnastic meet, Big Ronin took 4 medals, and overall all around trophy, me sure glad me cut fishing trip short and me made the event, it was great.
    • Had a real good night sleep, this not usual, and a good sign
    • Made to big Andrew at 5:58 AM, loaded my gear and we were on our way, had to go through the fog again, no problem did we have.
    • Reached the honey hole around 6:45 AM started our day of trolling Lake P
    • Got to see Big Bob and his crew they too trolling Lake P, we had about 4 boast trolling and catching all day.
    • Loons where out and about waiting for us to show up, another good sign
      CONDITIONS:  
    • Perfect
    • East wind 10-12 MPH
    • Over cast morning , sunny & clear later in the day
    • Cool, mild, warm temps, kept jump suite on all day
    • Water temp 61.7 F
    • Water level down 10”
    • Caught the end of a falling tide, tide went slack around 10:00 AM then started to come in, caught fish on the falling and incoming tide, current not that strong either way.
    • Water clarity on a scale of -1-2 was a 6 plus, looked great, green, clear, and wet just like me like it.
    • Had about 8-10 boats out and about
      TECHNIQUE / STRATGEY:  
    • Be safe
    • Have fun
    • Get Big Andrew back on the water
    • Get a ride in his new 25 foot Bertram, (see pictures) me thought we to fish out of it, but instead we fished out the Always 18 foot with 115 Yamaha Dream Machine on it
    • Gather intel to share and for future reference on fishing Lake P
    1. Moving water: (Tail end of a falling tide, current was light, slowed down a little, turned around 10:00 AM, and caught it just right.)
    2. Water Clarity: (Looked good, almost a 7 on the scale, even when the tide came in water still looked great, now is the time to fish Lake P, water condition at its best)
    3. Holding fish: (We had one double hook up, other than that they were scattered out along the trestles, all the way out to mile marker 174.)
    4. Patient: (None needed today, it was on from the first drop over the side to the last drop over the side, not a slam type trip, but enough action to keep us interested. Either Big Andrew would get one, or Oneofthepack would get one)
    • Trolling was the key, but Always, (our boat name) was a little too fast 2.2 to 2.5 mph, we tried the trolling motor it worked find until the battery went down to all most nothing. Me added weight to me line to get down, used a 1 oz. jig head the rest of the day.
    • Due to our speed it was a lead core line type of day, guess what, me left mind home, (don’t want to sell or swap anymore) but this will not happen again. Big Andrew had his lead core rig, and he was putting a hurting on me in a big way.
    LURE DU JOUR:  
    • Matrix Shad Lemon Drop matched up with ¾ oz. jig head, even went to a 1 oz. jig head
    • Big Andrew tried the rattle trap, lost it in about 8 minutes caught something on the bottom.
    • They had a skiff with 2 fisherpersons in it they were trolling with mirror lures, with a bright green trailer they seem to be doing real well, they fishing east side of trestles.
    AREAS / SPOTS / NUMBERS ON THE MAP FISHED:   North draw to mile maker 174, back & forth, stopped fishing at 1:20 pm. OUR REWARD:  
    • Lived to fish another day
    • (20) (NMR) Silverwonders
    • (2) Oyster shells (Big Andrew contribution for the day)
    • (4) Hits, hooked, lost reeling in, me think the pressure of the boat going forward, and me trying to real in, it pulled lure right out of their mouth.
    • (6) Hits we missed
    • (3) Pilings, only lost 2 lures all day
    • Got to see a Big Sea turtle in Lake P, its head was about 1 ½” in diameter
    • Got to see Big Bob and his crew, they were doing a number of the Silverwodners, me think them using Rattle traps with a trailer.
    • Got a lesson from the fisherpersons in the skiff, they trolling real fast and close to the pilings on an incoming tide, don’t know how they did not hook up more on the pilings. Their lure looked like a long minnow.
    • Big Andrew feed the crew, we had hot dogs, chips, and drinks upon our return to his abode in Lakeshore Estate, what a way to live.
    • Big Andrew & me made a run to Ace Hardware, there we ran into Big Doc, (They call him Doc) Big Andrew introduce me to him. Big Andrew says he catch BIG trout, we talked fishing for a while, exchange fish stories, and mutual acquaintance, and me think Big Doc was impressed with me fishing attire.
    • Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one
      FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:   Big Andrew got us started, he had 2 Silverwodners in the boat, says he me can feel you sweating, but me not worried me been behind before. It took a while but me caught up, and before you know it is 7 to 2 and it is not me sweating. Had a little bit of a dry spell, then Big Andrew makes his run, caught up and we even. WE both kept at it, he one, me one, then Big Andrew caught the monster of the day a 19” Silverwonder.   Big Andrew caught the first, last, biggest, and most Silverwonders to pull off a comeback to gain the honor of fisherperson of today.   Me really think the hot dogs had a lot to do with the decision today.   SUGESTIONS:   Saturday 5 t, Sunday 2 t, today 20 t , this should be a sign that “YOU GOT TO GO TO KNOW”, cause know this a day can make a difference, and you don’t want to be a “YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE YESTERDAY” type fisherperson.   PONDER OF THE DAY:   The rig that fits one fisherperson fails another; there is no recipe for fishing that suits all cases.   Off the water tomorrow, but back on the water Wednesday with Big Mike Lane, he will be aboard the Bay Flat Sr for a run around our Disney World known as Delacroix Island, until then:   Good Fishing   Team Jo-Jo & Oneofthepack
