CELEBRITY APPEARANCE - SKIPPER BIVINS OF ANIMAL PLANET'S HILLBILLY HANDFISHIN'

Skipper Bivins, Star of Animal Planet's Hillbilly Handfishin'

Skipper Bivins is the star of the hit show Animal Planet’s Hillbilly Handfishin’. He has been noodling for as long as he can remember. Although he has called Temple, Oklahoma home for the last ten years, this five-time world champion Okie noodler was born and raised in nearby Walters, Oklahoma. Skipper caught his first fish at the age of four after his father taught him the sport of noodling. He’s been hand fishing ever since, and as a third-generation noodler. Skipper passed down his love of the unique sport to his two children, whom he took to the waters when they were as young as 18 months old. The biggest catfish Skipper ever caught was 111 pounds, and at one time, this fish would have broken a world record. Skipper typically noodles two to four days per week. He started his noodling business, Big Fish Adventures about 6 years ago where he has a guided noodling trip business, and since then the business has soared. The main highlights of his job are meeting new people and seeing their reactions to the sport. Skipper lives in southwest Oklahoma with his wife, JoAnn, of 25 years and his children, Heather and Christian, who love the sport as much he does.
