"Hillbilly Handfishin'" Season 2 is a reality series on Animal Planet that is a trip of a lifetime for fish-out-of-water, adventure-seeking clients who want nothing more than to surprise themselves — and maybe gross themselves out — by doing things they'd never thought. Led by Oklahoma hand fishermen and self-proclaimed hillbillies Skipper Bivins and Trent Jackson, the clients get a taste of redneck lifestyle by going through the paces of noodling catfish with no fishing rods and no hooks. The only lures in this catfishing are fingers and toes, which, by the way, can be just as attractive to the snakes, beavers, muskrats and snapping turtles that take over abandoned catfish holes as homes of their own. The experience might be uncomfortable, completely foreign and downright terrifying, but it promises to alter the lives and positively affect each newly crowned noodler long after the last morsel of deep-fried fish is gone.

"Hillbilly Handfishin'" Season 2 is produced by Half Yard Productions for Animal Planet. Sean Gallagher and Abby Greensfelder are executive producers for Half Yard Productions. Keith Hoffman is executive producer for Animal Planet. Director of development is Sara Hellman.
