Todd Shiyou

Todd is a Hancock County native, the youngest of four sons to Michael and Juanita Shiyou. Being part of a family that loved the outdoors, it was natural for Todd to hunt and fish for whatever was in season. Todd's main passion is speckled trout fishing. He never missed a chance to go with his dad. Naturally, as Todd became older, venturing offshore, blue water fishing was just another step to make him a more rounded fisherman. No matter what the season, Todd wll be out there.

Scooter Whatley

Scooter is a native of Vicksburt, MS, and has ben filming for MS Outdoors since 2004. Beng an avid outdoorsman, Scooter and his whole family are passionate about hunting and fishing and just being in the outdoors. His father Harold Whatley introduced him to the sport of hunting at a very youg. age, and now Scooter is passing down that tradition to his own 2 sons, Connor and Austin. "I do love to hunt, but capturing wildlife on camera for the show is just as gratifying to me".
