  1. You could say that fisherman Clayton Daley has the bayou in his blood. He works the swamp any way he can to make a living. When he isn't earning a paycheck as Rick's jack-of-all-trades at Phillips Seafood, he's dropping lines and nets in the lakes and spillways near Bayou Pigeon, much like he's been doing for 40 years. And he does it the way a true-blue Cajun always has -- stringing nets across the waterway and using his boat to stampede the fish right into the nets. For the past 15 years, he's been fishing, hunting, snake and frog trapping and living off the land with his second wife Jonie, a dyed-in-the-wool country woman who's more comfortable in hip boots than high heels and the perfect match and foil for this rough-around-the-edges fisherman. Together, they make a formidable team. Last year, he and Jonie hauled in 140,000 pounds of buffalo fish all by themselves. It's enough to give them a nice lifestyle both at home and on the houseboat they plan to retire to -- when they decide to hang up their fishing nets for good. But for the record, that'll never happen!
