Bottom Feeders presented by RAM follows the lives and struggles of three teams of commercial fishermen as they battle Mother Nature, and each other, to bring in “the big haul” and put food on the family table. With a work ethic that is stronger than the rock-carved banks of the river they fish on, and a paycheck that is oftentimes smaller than the tiny towns they call home, these men are true, red-blooded Americans trying to make a living by catching a freshwater fish that others rarely want – bottom-feeding fish like carp and suckers. Some are small-time, single-man operations. Others are large, automated teams. But all share a love of the river. And all are Bottom Feeders.
