Sweetwater Marina

Last week was a bit challenging with the awful weather, but this weekend
turned out to be a beautiful, although slightly chilly. Hope you came out to
join in on some of the action. It was nice to see the SUN again. β˜€οΈ 🌞

Friday, we had the pleasure of having a couple of our favorite customers
come in from Alabama, for a little day trip to Delacroix. We always enjoy
having Ms. Shannon & her friend here at Sweetwater Marina. πŸ’™πŸš€

Saturday seemed to start out a little slow. We did have a couple anglers
get 34 trout on Lake Amadee side of Bayou Terre Aux Boeufs. The secret to
their catch was, get a deep hole and fish the bottom with live shrimp. 🦐 🐠
We had Blake Gagnon, Phillip Smith, and friend launch at Sweetwater
Marina. Their early morning started super slow, but they found a nice
grass line and got a 3-man limit of reds in about 30 minutes. On their way
back in to the launch they stopped at a spot they fished earlier in the
day and caught 5 nice drum. 🎣
Mr. Jay Platt brought his wife here, it was their first-time fishing in
Delacroix. They only caught 1 red, but they enjoyed learning a new area
and getting out of the house. 🐟

What a big difference a day makes. Sunday was great for redfish in Lake
John, Shrimp Lagoon, & Shell Lake. We had several reports of anglers
limiting out on reds in those areas.

The Flip Flop weather isn’t helping the fishing any, but the next best day
will be Friday, it’s going to be start of better fishing conditions.πŸŒ¬β›ˆβ˜ƒοΈβ˜”οΈβ˜€οΈπŸŒŠπŸŒ«
