The swampers are facing the toughest stretch. Worn down, the best spots have already been fished, and one unexpected turn can sink the season. In Pecan Island, Liz and Kristi start slow. Liz’s hands have taken a beating. She’s not sure how long they’ll hold on. In Bayou Sorrel, Junior’s right-hand man had a fishing accident. He’s working with his cousin Gerald, an avid hunter new to the gator game. In Pierre Part, Troy’s boys Jacob and Chase have been assigned to a tough fishing area, “the Armpit.” Getting off to a fast start the Armpit lives up to its name. In Myrtle Grove, Joe and his stepson Tommy head to an area saved for the home stretch but there’s a problem–not one bait has been touched. A bully gator has driven every gator from the area.
