Meet the Mudcatters
Meet the five teams of skilled "mudcatters" competing in the 10-week Okie hand-fishing competition.
Don “Katt Daddy” Brewer is the larger-than-life, tattooed trash talker of the group. Together with longtime friend Dennis Williams, the tough-as-nails duo plans to dominate the competition this season.
Marion Kincaid, “The Catfish King”, and his high-school buddy Mark Schull are Harley-riding, rough-and-tumble kind of guys, with a motto “If you ain’t bleedin’, you ain’t hand-fishin’.”
Teddy Good and his cousin Winston Walters are the “Young Guns.” As the next generation of hand-fishermen, they have a lot to prove to their competitors and their ancestors.… Teddy learned to noodle from his great-grandfather, and Winston fishes the same rivers his Comanche ancestors once did.
Scooter Bivens is the Okie Invitational’s defending champion—hailing from a family known as hand-fishing royalty. This season, Scooter is fishing with Nate Williams, a rookie with a lot to learn about handfishin’.
“The Legend” Lee McFarlin is a hand-fishing master with more than 40 years of experience, and a heavy favorite to win it all. He’s been teaching his daughter the ropes since she was a little girl, and now Misty Garcia is his fishing partner.
Looking forward to this season shows. Handfishin looks like it could be fun. Just not sure if I would like meeting something other then the catfish!
I'm watching the show right now as I'm typing....in Austria. Great show, and being that I'm an Okie, the show makes me a bit homesick. I'm encourage to try noodling here in Austria, and who knows maybe I can get a few people over here interested to join me.
