Slow day down at Sweetwater today! The weather looked shakey and kept everyone away. Anyways, Captain Jack had a charter with his friend Jay Pecko, Jay’s friend Dennis and Dennis’ wife, JT. They have been fishing with Captain Jack for 7-8 years now. The same group was supposed to fish with Captain Jack two weeks ago..however, the weather kept that from happening…it looked shakey, and they decided not to go. Captain Jack ended up taking his friend Tony (who brings us all our gravel) and in two hours they caught at least 50 specks. Today looked like it would be the same situation. However, Captain Jack said it probably wouldn’t rain until 2-3pm..and that would give them plenty of time. So, this time they went for it..of course, bringing rain jackets…just in case. They left at about 7:45 and were finished at around 11…they had 100 beautiful speckled trout…and 15 minutes to spare before the rain…then the rain came down, as hard as ever! I believe today’s total was like 7 boat launched. Out of the seven..maybe two did good on the speckled trout. We aren’t sure what the other 5 boats caught..heard it was a few. Unfortunately, the next 3 days is looking like it will be screwed due to the weather. We aren’t saying you can’t fish, but it is going to be extreme conditions..due to the wind. Probably by Wednesday the wind will lay down. By the weekend, the weather will warm back up to the 80’s..so, we should be in for some good fishing again! Book a room this weekend…come on down..and get in on the action! Cause it’s looking good! We want to thank all of our great customers that drive long distances to stay with us, all of our local customers and everyone else that comes down and spends money at our marina…without you all…we couldn’t keep the doors open.
