Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
What a crazy weekend!! The weather was horrible for 1/2 of Saturday and Sunday was a total wash. For those who braved the weather on Saturday, even the high water and the winds couldn't ruin the fishing at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Most brave anglers had a pretty good haul on Saturday. The shrimp situation seems to be getting better, the weather can only improve and as always....  Read More

They ended the day yesterday with 5 Reds and 68 Trout. Today they fished for Trout for about an hour....  Read More

Another good day of fishing is in the books at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Today the fishing was better than decent with most anglers coming in with good numbers of fish and some almost catching limits. The bad news for tomorrow is we don't ave too many live shrimp, so if your not planning on getting to Sweetwater before 6 am, you should stop at Bait Inc., Gulf Marine Outlet or....  Read More

The water was extremely high today. It was about 3 inches from coming over the dock at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. But that didn't deter 13 brave anglers, mostly regulars but a couple newbies, from giving the fishing a shot. Believe it or not they caught some fish, even a couple limits Of Speckled Trout. The water is really clear right in front of the Marina, but we heard mixed....  Read More

The weather hasnt' been our friend for the last few days here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island and unfortunately as a result we don't have anything good to write about. For the next couple of days Capt. Jack thinks we should just take it day by day because the fishing depends on the weather and we aren't sure what's going to happen. Once the winds stop blowing the fishing should....  Read More

It was a beautiful Saturday down at Sweetwater Marina. The Kayak Tournament went off with out a hitch and they caught catch tons of fish ( Reds, Trout, Bass, Black Drum, etc... ) and we loved having them. As for our regulars - there seemed to be a wide range of catch amounts of fish today - but most folks seemed happy. Little Lake, Lake Batola, Pointe Fienne, Lake John area all have plenty....  Read More

Just a quick report today from Sweetwater Marina. We launched 20 boats today and as per Mr. Ronnie, 3 boats came back to the launch at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island with empty ice chests, 3 came back with limits and the rest had enough fish for a couple of good fish fries. That sounds like a pretty good day of fun and fishing to us. Most of the groups today said they used live shrimp....  Read More

Yesterday the fishing was a little tough for most anglers here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island because of the high winds and dirty water, but that doesn't mean the fish aren't out there in the Delacroix marshes. The handful of folks who did well on Saturday caught beautiful Trout. Some of those folks went back out today and while they weren't hauling in the big ones like yesterday,....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
Early this morning it started out good, then Bam, big thunderstorms with hail. People were scattered everywhere, running back to their cars, hiding under the building and in the baitshop, it was chaos. At least 20 boats were still out on the water through all of this and a line of cars about a block long ready to launch. The bad weather seemed to sneak up on everyone this morning. Folks....  Read More

Capt. Jack talked to a lot of anglers who launched with us at Sweetwater Marina Today. The bite started off slow in the morning with anglers coming in with anywhere from 4 or 5 to 20 Trout. But toward the afternoon the bite picked up a good bit with folks reporting catching Trout scattered throughout most of the interior Delacroix marsh regular spots. Tomorrow's fishing should be even better....  Read More

Today down at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island the fishing was pretty decent. Mr. Ronnie reported that a couple of groups that launched with us came pretty close to getting limits. Most of our regulars and a few guides did really well also. Keep an eye on the weather because if it turns out to be good for the next couple of days, then you should make a trip down to Sweetwater to see us....  Read More

It wasn't a very busy Saturday at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island, but the few folks who braved the weather did pretty good, especially the kayakers. They caught Reds, Bass, Specs and Black Drum. For tomorrow the weather isn't looking too good for fishing. The sun will finally be shining, but it's going to be pretty windy. If you're feeling brave, then come on down. We have plenty....  Read More

Today Capt. Jack fished with Capt. CT Williams to film a spot for the BigFish Report which airs on Thursday night on Fox 8 News at 9. After heading out from the launch at Sweetwater Marina they easily caught 43 nice Specks, 1 Red, 1 Bass and 2 Black Drum. Live shrimp once again was the bait to use. There are tons of fish in the interior marshes of Delacroix. The trick is to find some clean....  Read More

Capt. Jack fished today with Bobby Crane and his wife. They left the dock at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island at about 7:30 and made it back by 11 with 53 Specks, 2 Drum, 3 Reds, 2 Bass and 1 Freshwater Cat. A nice little Delacroix mixed bag and live shrimp was definitely the winning ticket. Capt. Jack said that without live shrimp their haul for the day would have been much lower. The....  Read More

It was a specktacular day here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Capt. Jack and his dad left the dock at about 7:30 with the goal of catching 50. They were back at the launch around 10 with the 28 Trout they kept. They exceeded their goal of 50 and had a great time keeping 28 of the smaller fish and throwing back 30-40 Trout that were 2-3.5 lbs. Fun to catch but too big to eat. ....  Read More

Just quick little report from Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. First off, we hope everyone faired well over the last few days with all of the nasty weather. Last Monday Capt.

So of course the last few days while all....  Read More

On a scale of 1-10 we would put today at a 6 down here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. We heard lots of varying reports ranging from a few boats catching limits, close to limits and lots of boats in the 5 -25 fish range. Good amounts of Black Drum were brought in and the Reds are really staring to show up. So while some folks did better than others, no one went home with an empty....  Read More
