Hackney heads to Lafitte for speckled trout and redfish

Sportsman TV fishes with Rad Trascher in advance of CCA STAR tournament kickoff

The 2014 Coastal Conservation Association STAR tournament gets cranked up Saturday, so Sportsman TV host Greg Hackney headed to Lafitte to fish with tournament director Rad Trascher to get the details on the 101-day event.

Hackney and Trascher were hosted by Doc’s Fishing Charters and Capt. Maurice d’Aquin, the president of CCA’s Westbank chapter.

After some topwater speckled trout action, Hackney couldn’t resist going after some big redfish with Strike King’s Pure Poison vibrating jig.

Sight-fishing was great, and a couple of redfish were tagged for the tournament.

Sportsman TV airs on CST every Thursday night, as well as Saturday mornings at 8:30 and Sunday mornings at 9.
