Overall the fishing was decent today at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Most folks came in with 15 - 20 Trout, but a few anglers who headed outside to the Compressor Rig caught limits. Hopefully for tomorrow the wind will be a little lighter and the fishing should be great. Capt. Jack has a fishing tip for those of you who fish on the Northshore, try out the Pelican Point Marina. ....  Read More

  • Capt. Jack's charter with Joe Vitale and family.
On Saturday Capt. Jack had the pleasure of taking Joe Vitale and his family out. They headed to Black Bay hoping to catch some Speckled Trout. The water was choppy and looking decent, not great. But that didn't matter because the Trout were biting. Using Sweetwater live shrimp under a popping cork and on the bottom their haul for the day was 70 Trout and they made it back to the launch at....  Read More

Capt. Jack fished on Tuesday and things did not start out well. They headed outside in hopes of getting in on some of the good Trout action thats been going on on the outside for the last 2 weeks, but things didn't go as planned. There were thunderstorms everywhere and they got drenched 5 times. They ended up catching 6 decent Trout while on the outside, but weather forced them back inside....  Read More

A lot of 11 1/2 inch Speckled Trout are being caught on the inside, but right on the edges. This means....  Read More

Unlike the weather predictions it was really windy this morning throwing a monkey wrench into the game and making fishing a little harder than expected here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Lots of anglers still headed out to Black Bay looking to catch some Specs and some had great success. We also had plenty of 1/2 limits reports, but some folks struggled only catching 5 or 10....  Read More

The fishing was a little rough this morning because of the brisk winds, but by this afternoon anglers who headed out to Black Bay did really well with Trout. They also caught Trout right were Bayou Terraboueffe goes into Black Bay. And while some of the Captains and our regulars did well with the Reds and Black Drum, even the Reds and Black Drum, which had been steady for the last few days....  Read More

The fishing has remained steady for the last few days down here on Delacroix Island at Sweetwater Marina. Just like the last few days the fishing is decent if you are looking for Reds and Black Drum. Just grab some live shrimp, lots of water and gatorade and hit the inside marshes around Delacroix. If your looking for Trout you are probably going to have to head to the outside. We have heard....  Read More

A few Trout were caught, but they are pretty hard to come by. Bad news is we will not have live bait for tomorrow morning, but are expecting a delivery by mid afternoon. So if you are heading down to fish with us tomorrow....  Read More

Down in Delacroix at Sweetwater Marina the fishing was hit or miss today. Some folks did well and some struggled. The target for most people today was Reds, Black Drum and Bass, so most folks stayed in the interior marshes. There also seem to be a lot of small Trout around the inside with a few keepers in the mix. The great news is we just got a whole load of beautiful shrimp for your bait....  Read More

It was a little slow today at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Capt. Jack did not fish today, but Capt. Dave took Mark Davis and his son and daughter out today. It was hot and the fishing wasn't easy, but they kept trying and after hitting multiple spots on the inside they ended the day with 4 Reds and 20 Black Drum. Not a bad day.
