In this blog, BIG NEWS: Customer Loyalty Program is here! Weekly Fishing Report. 30% Off water shoes. Hunting and Camping update. Archery Update. Gun Shop News. Let's get started!
You shopped at Sweeney’s for years. You’ve trusted our expertise to help you get the most out of your outdoor adventures. You’ve chosen to spend your hard-earned dollars at your local shop instead of handing them over to a faceless corporation.
All of us here at the shop appreciate it. Our livelihood depends on giving you more reasons to come back. Until now, we didn’t have the tools to reward you for choosing to shop at Sweeney’s.
However, today is a new day.
Chad, Scott, Shane, David, Will, Daniel, Tom, Austin, Lucas, Ben, Pete, Bill, Andrew, Alex, and Ryan are very excited to announce our brand new customer loyalty program. We are calling it:
Starting tomorrow, August 19th, you can sign up for the program with your mobile number and email and start earning 1 point for every 1 dollar you spend at Sweeney’s. You’ll be able to accumulate and redeem these points for discounts on your purchases. Once you get to 2000 points, you’ll hit our VIP status and begin earning 1.5 points for every 1 dollar spent.
Please mention that you’d like to join the program with one of us on your next visit.
See you at the shop!
This week in Fishing
The Napa River continues to have the best bite around. The Striper action is hot!!! There continues to be a lot of fish spread throughout the river. The bank anglers are scoring on good numbers of fish, cut anchovies and sardines are the best for catching fish. It's a great time to take the kids out and experience a great chance to catch multiple fish. Trolling and casting a variety of lures is really fun out there right now. We continue to get reports coming in on a great rattletrap or LV500 bite. We just received a supply of Rattletraps, come by and get your favorite color. The south end of the river is still producing a mixed bag for anglers soaking bait. Sturgeon, Striper, and Bat Rays are all being caught.
The summertime slowdown is in full effect up at the lake right now. The rising water temps and dropping water levels are making bites for all species really tough. For the Anglers trying their luck for kokanee or trout, try covering a lot of water trolling in 50'-100'. The traditional areas around the mouth of the Narrows to the Big Island are still producing a few fish. Areas around the Dam are also holding some fish. Bites are few a far between, get out there early and try and beat the heat. Bass anglers should also get out there very early, and stick with finesse tactics like drop-shotting, Neko rigs, and split-shotting your favorite 4-6" worm.
Austin and I (Alex) were at it again last week. We were on the water, anchored up and ready at 5:30am. Unlike the last 3 weeks, the bite didn't start until around 6:40am-6:50am. The run lasted for around 1 hour, as we saw a number of boats hook up. Finally, our turn came at 7:05am! Watch the video to see what happened.
The Local A zone rifle season kicked off last weekend and we received a few really good reports of hunters filling their tags. Looks like the season is off to a really good start. Local hunter and one of our favorite customers Joe Giovanonni started his season off right by taking a beautiful 4x4 buck.
Joe had been watching this buck for a while, but when the opportunity to take this buck came on opening morning, he didn't waste any time pulling the trigger. Congrats!!!
Dove season is right around the corner, with the traditional opening day on September 1st. We have a good supply of decoys, Mojo Dove, seats, and lightweight camo t-shirts. We also just received a small order of 12ga Steel Dove loads just in time for the opener. Don't wait on this one, get down here and grab what you can before it's all gone. We also have our Winchester Bobcat hunting boots on sale at $59.99 down from $79.99, we have most sizes in stock.
