Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
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

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
The fishing has really turned on over the last couple days down here on Delacroix Island at Sweetwater Marina. There are plenty Reds to be caught all around in the interior marshes. They are practically jumping in the boat. And finally the Trout are here too. We've heard reports of tons of Trout in Black Bay. CAPT. JACK'S FISHING TIP- Tune in tomorrow night to Fox 8 News at 9 to watch....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
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

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
Overall it wasn't a bad day for fishing in Delacroix. We launched 10 boats at Sweetwater Marina and most of them reported doing decent with the Reds and Black Drum. 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

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
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.

Capt. Jack headed out today with Capt. CT Williams to film a spot for the BigFish Report which airs on Fox8 tomorrow night at 9. It was Capt. Jack's first trip out to Black Bay in about 2 1/2 months.

They also caught....  Read More

Capt. Jack spoke with some of the fishing guides who launch out of Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island and they reported doing really well with the Reds and Black Drum. The Reds seemed to be caught mostly off the points scattered through out the interior marshes in Delacroix. He also spoke with some of the Sweetwater regulars whose reports were for the most part similar to the guides. ....  Read More

Capt. Jack was released from hospital today. We are very lucky, it could have been much worse. We are also very appreciative for all of the support and kind words. He hopes to be back at Sweetwater by Monday or Tuesday, but will be taking it easy for a while. He got some fishing reports from some different people today and it sounds like the fishing was pretty good. There seemed to be more....  Read More

Capt. Jack had a medical emergency Wednesday afternoon and has been hospitalized since. It was sudden and unfortunately we did not have time to make sure all the bases were covered during his absence. He hadn't been feeling well since Monday, but insisted it was just gas and that if he farted he would be fine, which obviously was not the case. He did a charter on Wednesday and called at....  Read More

The fishing was a little slow today down here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. The rain missed us today, but the wind was kickin. But a slow day for fishing in the Delacroix marshes is still better than a good day for fishing anywhere else. Just spending time in the beautiful marshes of Delacroix is worth the trip. Most of of regular Sweetwater anglers had good numbers on Reds with....  Read More

Reports from anglers who launched with us here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island today were that the Reds and Black Drum are still on fire throughout the interior marshes. Capt. Jack talked to one group that did really well on the Specs, but they had to go way out toward the Breton Sound Area. For the next few days the fishing should remain the same. So check the radar and head on....  Read More
