Swampers to the core, Junior Edwards and his son Willie spend their days out on the bayous and waterways of south Louisiana throughout the year.


They truly live off the land, taking full advantage of the swamp’s bountiful resources, including its crawfish, crabs, deer, frogs, and several species of fish and of course…alligators.


Junior is one of the last remaining year-round commercial fishermen in south Louisiana that supports his family solely on commercial fishing.


The independent swamper lifestyle agrees with Junior; the one time he tried working for someone else, he only lasted two weeks. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t possess an extraordinary work ethic. Every morning, he leaves home by 5:30 for a long day of trapping and selling his catch. In the evenings, he and his wife Theresa do everything they can to prepare for the next season, such as making nets for buffalo fishing.


Now Willie is carrying on the family tradition, sharing the tricks of the trade with his own young children as well.
