Bainbridge, GA -- Troy and Jacob Landry dropped in on the Bainbridge Country Club's fish fry on Friday night. The two star on the hit reality show "Swamp People."

The rain didn't put a damper on a big turnout, and the fan support never ceases to amaze the reality television stars.

"It makes you really humble and realize that they really enjoy the show and it makes you realize how much people get into it and feel like they're a part of your family," said Jacob Landry.

Even though they're on TV, the Landry's say the life they live is no act.

"What you see is what you get," laughed Troy. "South Louisiana's one of the few places left where there's still a lot of people who still make a living commercial fishing, make that living on the Bayous, and my boys and I have just been real fortunate, they put us on TV and people love us."

Proceeds from the event went towards the country club, and members said that money will be used to throw more events which they hope will bring the community together.

Troy said that that they love going out and meeting the fans. The show is currently in season four and will begin filming season five in September.


Bainbridge, GA - It was a good old fashioned fish fry at the Bainbridge Country Club. No fish fry is complete without food, drink, and a couple of celebrities, too...

Troy and Jacob Landry from the hit show Swamp People dropped in-- giving folks a chance to meet and greet with the reality stars as well as get some pictures and autographs.

If you haven't seen the show, it follows alligator hunters-- so, naturally, alligator was on the menu.
