Troy Landry & Brandon Hotard Swamp People
| Bio, Wiki, Net Worth, Age
Brandon Hotard is a project manager at a ship yard so he has an office job. He’s not a vet like his step dad Troy, so he struggles with the physical aspect of the gator hunting. Clint who worked with his dad decided he wasn’t going to fish this year. He was asked by Troy to help him out and he was glad. It reminds him of his roots. They have had a few close encounters but that doesn’t phase the duo. He knows his dad is the captain of the boat and whatever he says goes. He never defies or crosses his boundaries.
Troy Adam Landry is from Pierre Park, Texas. He was born right down the Bayou in a tiny town. His best day ever he caught 82 in a day. On an average day he catches 30 to 40. He feels you gotta have your place in life and that place for him is the Swamp.
One week into the hurricane shortened gator season. Swampers are finally getting back on track. But just when they think the worse has past, Mother Nature strikes back with a catastrophic fish kill. Now they have to travel father and hunt faster, bring in new techniques to hunt the fast ones. Welcome to the swamp.
It’s day 7 in Pierre Park, Texas. Troy and his stepson Brandon have been struggling in the wake of the hurricane but now Roy is feeling good. Brandon his step son hasn’t been on the swamp in years so he’s a little rusty. Troy knows his son will learn quickly enough but the Landers still have 340 tags to fill. Troy is looking to bag 15 gators to stay on track. It’s a daily average he’s held before. But this year his pride is on the line. Gator hunters from all over Texas are hunting on his turf. He’s placed a bet with his rivals for a $3,000 alligator slaver. Troy’s gotta bring in quantity and quality. The gators just aren’t biting.
Finally after dozens of empty lines Brandon spots signs of a disturbance. A cypress tree has bark ripped right off it’s knees. They assume it’s been caused a huge gator who might help Troy win with his bets. Brandon gets up his nerves and shoots the gator dead. The landrers have bagged a valuable 10 footer. It’s only 7 am and they already have a beast in the boat. But Troy has to keep up his blistering boat to win against the other Texans.
As they reach the other Canal they run into a massive fish kill. A previous hurricane knocked all the leaves from trees into the bayou and when the leaves die it takes all the oxygen from the water so it caused the death of the fish. Instead of taggin 15 gators Troy is looking at the possibility of the fish kill shutting his whole operation down for the day. It has amde it impossible to catch alligators. In order to salvage his day Troy moves out to a new area.
