Shawn Schuppert and his fiancee Lisa Jewell spent a week in the swamp lands of Louisiana, and happened to bump into a family with national fame for its ability to track down the reptiles.
Excerpts from the article:
Throughout their trip, the couple frequented the Landry’s family bait shop, Duffy’s Shell Station in Pierre Part, La., which was near where they stayed.
“You go in there and it’s just like a coffee shop,” Schuppert said.
Jewell spent several hours in Duffy’s speaking with Troy Landry’s mother and his brothers.
“What’s amazing is the Landrys, they’re just the nicest people,” she said. “You can sit down and talk to them like you’ve known them for years.”
The couple enjoyed their stay in Southern Louisiana, and had several opportunities to talk to the Landry family and take pictures with the stars of “Swamp People.”
Schuppert said he would love to go again next year, and possibly take his father along with him for alligator hunting season. As if he weren’t a fan already, Schuppert said the trip has only driven his admiration of “Swamp People” that much more.
“It was great — just being there, being a part of that and being that close,” he said.
