Troy Landry's obsession with catching an 800lb alligator leads him to the swamp's cypress groves; he spends a large amount of money to secure the right to hunt in an area of swamp teeming with alligators; and his empty lines put his season in jeopardy.
Willie Edwards is forced to hunt for alligators with his bare hands; RJ Molinere Jr tracks down a reptile that is tearing up the banks; and Troy enlists the help of a female alligator hunter.
Troy tries to maximise his revenue; RJ and Jay Paul Molinere take a hard line on those setting lines directly across from theirs; and Joe LaFont is having a good day on the swamp until he suffers a serious injury.
Willie is forced to tackle a huge gator with a pocket knife; fish in the swamp suddenly start dying in large numbers; and the hunters have to contend with poachers encroaching on their turf.
The hunters face some of the biggest alligators seen in the area for years; they resort to desperate measures to get ahead; and have to deal with poachers who have stolen animals caught on their lines.
In Season 6, a hunter tries to catch a famous reptile, Troy hopes to settle a score with a gator he has pursued for years and a team enters a dangerous canal only accessible by canoe.
In Season 7, Troy does the unthinkable and recruits outside help, Daniel and Joey are hit by complications and Jay Paul makes a bad call that could cost him and his dad big money.
