Brand new Sportsman TV: The tried and true cocahoe

Check out the latest episode tonight at 6:30 on CST

This week’s episode of Sportsman TV features a tried and true — but often forgotten trick of inshore fishing — live cocahoe minnows. The cocahoe used to be a mainstay in boats across the coast, but as they became less available anglers started using live shrimp and croakers more often.

But Capt. Kip Plaisance of Tidewater Charters still holds true to the cocahoe, and he put it on full display for this episode. Plaisance set up his son Max, host Greg Hackney and CCA-Louisiana’s Rad Trascher with popping corks and live minnows for an all day catch-fest that resulted in an action packed show.

Plaisance located his fish by first finding clean water and then fished broken shorelines before making his way further down the bank, a technique he details in the episode.

Hackney was in full “Hack-Attack mode” as he took plenty of time to joke around in between reeling in speckled trout and redfish. He even takes the time to break down some of the techniques the group used that day as well.
