It’s getting closer to being trout time here in Delacroix. Captain Jack and his charter ended up with 50 trout, 9 bass, 1 sheep head, 1 twenty pound red and probably threw back 100 trout. Live shrimp….the key….and we have them here at Sweetwater! Not only do we have live shrimp, but we have beautiful live shrimp! Trout fishing seems to have gotten a lot better, since the water temperature raised back up to the 60’s and cleared up. Unfortunately, they have the marsh destroyer on. It’s not very bad, but it is on. Anything is bad with that thing…considering we have the Mardi Gras cut, which is 20 times worse than the diversion! Now we have two sources destroying the little salt water marsh we have left in Delacroix! There must be a reason..can’t see it..but there has to be one. Before it’s too late and they destroy all the marsh with these fresh water diversions, get down here and enjoy what we have left! Most spots are clean for trout fishing. If you can get in a clean spot, there seems to be a lot of trout. Captain Jack caught fish scattered all throughout today…no big numbers of fish in one spot. However, seems like some good fishing. It should only get better with the warming temperatures. Put the odds in your favor…buy some live shrimp. Let your buddy fish with the plastic. See who catches more. It’s amazing what a live shrimp can do. It’s like Captain Jack says “everything wants to eat a shrimp..even you.” As far as the weather, there is only a few guys with great jobs..that’s the weather guys. They can make guesses and still get paid big money. If you depend on what they say, you’re never going to get to go fishing. Remember..this was supposed to be milder than normal winter and a little wetter..haha. Maybe the mild is on it’s way now! Anyway..hope to see you soon down here at Sweetwater, the Marina that loves their customers! Remember…reserve today for lodging, charters or boat sheds. We are booking quickly. Call 504-342-2368.
