Trout Tracker Guide Service


Captain Kevin Cochran lives in Corpus Christi, Texas, and fishes the Baffin Bay/Upper Laguna Madre complex, occasionally Corpus Christi Bay.

A licensed captain since 1998, full-time guide since 2004, Kev almost always fishes by wading, targeting speckled trout primarily, using

artificial lures exclusively. He's known for helping customers catch the biggest trout of their lives, and for teaching them how to improve

their skills as anglers. A feature writer in Texas Saltwater Fishing Magazine since 1998, Kev has authored several books on the art of

fishing for speckled trout with lures, and offers products intended specifically to aid anglers in their quest to improve productivity,

many of which are described in detail on the blogs page of this site. Captain Kev operates out of a 24' Haynie HO.

A conservative-minded angler, Kev requires customers to release all trout over about 20 inches, keeping only smaller ones to eat.

Anglers who succeed in catching a trophy fish will leave with pictures and measurements of their fish, sufficient for use in making a replica mount.

The captain does not provide wading accessories, including waders, boots, pliers, belts or stringers. Anglers who book with Kev

should be prepared to bring their own rods, reels and lures too. The Captain will provide guidance on what works best.

Captain Kev's charters generally run from approximately 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., but he will adjust the time to fit the needs of the moment.

The base rate for 2 or 3 anglers to fish a full day with Trout Tracker Guide Service is $550.

Kev charges $50 more to include a 4th angler, and never takes more than 4 anglers at a time.

The captain charges $100 less than the base rate for anglers who come to fish alone.

All anglers receive a $50 discount for fishing catch and release.

A $100 deposit is required to book any charter.
