Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
We launched about 20 boats today at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. And while conditions were not good for fishing, a few boats came in with good amounts of fish, but no limits reported. Some of the charter captains did really well on Reds today and had decent numbers of Trout. So in spite of the wind it seems like most folks did catch some fish. We aren't sure what the weather is....  Read More

Overall it was a decent day for fishing at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island.

As for where to fish, people seemed to be catching at most of the regular Delacroix spots, the key is look for the diving birds. The....  Read More

Today was a decent day down at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island.

Toward the afternoon things picked a good bit and a couple of the hot areas were Four Horse Lake and Little Lake. Tomorrow and into the weekend the winds should be laying down setting us....  Read More

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

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.

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
