Cap'n Kev Cochran
Call (361) 688-3714
Captain Kevin Cochran is a life-long fisherman with over two decades
of experience fishing most every named saltwater bay in Texas.
A sport-fishing lure specialist, Kev is a tournament-tested veteran
who was named the Rudy Grigar Award winner by Gulf Coast Troutmasters
in 2001. Today, Kev's fishing efforts are focused on wadefishing
for trophy speckled trout in the waters of Corpus Christi Bay,
Baffin Bay and the Upper Laguna Madre.
A former secondary school teacher, this captain takes pride in
his ability to coach beginning, novice and expert anglers into
catching more and bigger trout on lures. On a charter, Kev will
fish beside you, sharing relevant details related to trophy trout
fishing. A topwater enthusiast at heart, Kev is a versatile angler
who's worked hard to master the use of Paul Brown's Original Lures,
both floating and sinking versions, and he's proficient with soft
plastics too. Captain Cochran's pursuit of wallhanger trout is
a year-round, full-time obsession, and he's willing to do what
it takes to find the fish that make his home waters famous. Fishing
with Kev is an opportunity to learn from one of the best. His
monthly feature column has appeared in Texas
Saltwater Fishing Magazine since 1998.
Fishing for trophy specks in South Texas can be outstanding
in any season. Every effort will be made by the captain to be in the right place
at the right time, given the season and weather conditions.

"In order to maximize consistency, anglers must operate in
locations which offer ripe opportunity, at times which provide
high potential productivity. They must carry and use well-designed,
efficiently-rigged equipment and must make reasoned decisions
related to lure choice and presentation style, using observations
of the world around them to tweak those choices appropriately.
Proficient anglers who do all these things acknowledge the need
for relying on sound operating principles which concurrently establish
and govern truths related to the endeavors."
