Swamp Pawn follows Rick Phillips of Phillips Swamp Seafood in Bayou Pigeon, Louisiana. Phillips Swamp Seafood buys and sells anything the bayou serves up, including alligators, turtles, bullfrogs, crawfish, and everything in between.
Phillips and a colourful cast of neighbouring “swampers” make their living fishing, hunting and haggling in this tiny, self-sustaining community deep in the heart of the bayou. Swamp Pawn features an array of quirky locals who rely on their ability to sell whatever will catch a price.
This close-knit community lives off the land, learns to be resourceful when times are lean and depends on each other to get by.
