Cocahoe Minnows Bait of Choice Lately

Cocahoe minnows is what my Lousiana guests called our mud minnows today.   We thought it would be funny if the next time I went in to the bait shop that I would ask for "Cocahoe Minnows" instead of the Muds.  Anyway, that's what we were using this afternoon.  I met Glen and Michelle Ernst along with their young adult children Phillip and Christina at the Atlantic Seafood boat ramp at 3pm today and we headed up to Lanceford Creek to fish the dock pilings during the last hour of the falling tide.  The anglers were tossing the Cocahoe's up to the pilings and fishing them back slowly.  Christina was the first to hookup up with a feisty Redfish and Glen brought in a hungry Seatrout. We made a run up to the Jolley River and fished the first of an incoming tide, but the wind was blowing briskly and made it real tough for the anglers and for myself.  But they persevered and were able to pick up another couple of Redfish and they also caught some Croaker.  We made our last stop behind Tiger Island and Phillip found a nice Flounder hole, pulling out a couple in just a few minutes.  Christina had another Redfish or two, then with the sun heading down, we called it a day, another great one to be out on the water!
