    Anyone see this?

    The History Channel has a cool new show called Swamp People.
    Check it out. It will make you think twice about swimming @ Mudbugs.

    Not sure about many of my family there, that's a little too far east, but there has to be a good chance that Jerry's distance relatives are on it.
    Some of it shot on Lake Verret.

    One area on Lake V., where a large gator was caught, is called Point a Joe. It's a hangout where the locals go. It' located on the NW tip of the lake
    just before you enter PP Bay. That show was pretty damn funny... I'm sure most of America considers all of SOLA in the same regards as the "Swamp People".

    A few of my favorite scenes: "...he's a "tree shaker", I tell ya' - a "tree shaker"..." (I've never heard that term in my life, but then again I don't trap gators.)

    The best scene: While trying to shoot a gator that was hooked: plink "miss-fire", plink "miss-fire", plink "miss-fire".... "damn, I forgot to load the damn gun...".
    That was some funny chit.

    yeah. i was also surprised that they were shooting the gators with a .22 rifle mostly.

    its a neat show because it gives you a perspective on how some people down there live, but i think it might paint a skewed picture of things too.

    I saw it too. Noticed the guy named Troy who caught the 13'er(Big Head) in Lk Verret was from Pierre Part. I wonder if G.L. knows him.

    I know they did some filming at Gro's and the mosquito bar. It should be in one of the upcoming episodes. I'm pretty sure that Troy owns Duffy's restaurant in P Part.

    I watched it, was good...Every time they did a wide shot I'd think outloud "DAMN, that looks like a nice place to ride! I gotta find that next time I'm there..."

    Then my GF would freak out
