Who’s the Villain? Dave vs. Marciano

“Tricky Dave” often gets the bad rap, but things aren’t always black and white in the world of bluefin tuna fishing. Fishermen go to great lengths to be the one to snag the fish. In last night’s new episode of Wicked Tuna, Dave and Marciano go head to head… and we’ve got a clip of the drama. Who do you think is the villain? Vote now!

    i like the show.

    my favorite episode is when maricanos nephew pulled in the best fish to ever at his uncles boat.

    hope the show continues, i would like to see that pair dominate in number of fish caught.

    dave is just a flat out prick he gets a dose of his own medicine from Marciano some times i wonder if ya,ll didn’t try sticking as close together but not to screw each other up if the combined chum slicks would work to an advantage but hell you dumb bastards don’t play well with others lol

    Great show – enjoy watching! But could do without all that dam drama/ B.S. Most (not all ) are crying ass babies vs. supposed tough guys!! Dam its part of the deal –have good/bad days. Man the F@* up dudes!
    Dave get a grip dude! Talk smack how everyone follows you but yet when you are having a bad day — who are you calling? Started paying Paul less money but yet you have caught more fish than you had before.
    Paul is a cool dude – Dave your the one with bad attitude.
    I hope that young kid ( hes dam good ) gets smart and leaves your ass too

    I used to like the guys on the Bounty Hunter but who elsse agrees that Bill and Scott need to smarten up…All thier bullshit talk about Paul coming onboard and still not hooking up…they look like jerks talking about him like that. Scott sucks and Billy is right behind him…Blaming Paul for no fish…I don’t like it…Paul is alright..good guy it seems…

    Dave Marciano is the only real fisherman on the show.
    He’s a Hellofa guy, and when it came decision time between business and family, he chose family.

    dave is not what i call a true sportsman. who would wish bad things on fellow anglers?he acts like a narrcisstic woman. always repeating his words twice. just a snooty selfish human. not much of a man at all , and without a real personality and sence of humor.acts more like a bitch.dave, take lessons from marciano and try to become a man instead of a small minded boy like yourself. some one needs to kick your pathetic ass. GROW UP!

    I just want to know if the Hard Merchandise is afloat!. It seems like if it wasnt for bad luck, Marciano wouldnt have any luck! First, the transmission, and now come to the dock and see your boat sunk!!!! This guy, by far and away, seems to be the most decent, humane person of the bunch! I would definitely like to see him get a break!

    What happened to the deal between Marciano and Pinwheel. I thought that was smart on Dave’s part because Pinwheel does get lucky but he follows around Dot.Com and HotTuna and knows their numbers so it can only widen the fishing spots for Marciano. Marciano is my favorite. I like Dave, Joe and Jason cuz they fish good together. They act like decent human beings and they work hard. Marciano has gotten all the bad breaks and I bet if Dave Ferraro or T.J. were in Marciano’s shoes they would have packed it in or if they were in the Bounty Hunters position. Bill just can’t catch fish. He has my luck. I can be sitting by someone catching a fish every ten minutes for hours and I won’t catch one! Marciano has had some rough times and he isn’t a rich guy, He’s a hard working man who takes care of his family. I think Bounty Hunters wife Sue should be running the fishing boat as Captain and Bill stay at home because he has a bad attitude. She should be Captain, Bill’s brother 1st mate and Paulie taking orders and fish. That combo would probably do better than most of them cuz Sue has the good attitude and Bill’s brother should be telling Paulie what to do because he needs an attitude adjustment. He knows alot but its the way he puts the info out there. Hot Tuna should let his young mates run things and T.J. start working. He is going to need a barge to haul him if he gets any bigger. Its not healthy sitting all the time and gaining that much weight! The Christine needs to get involved because I like to see him give Dave on Dotcom a hard time. He had Ferraro pulling his hair out over that 1200 lb. fish! that was great! Can’t wait till they go South this winter and fish with those long poles! Those Southerners were the biggest cry babies I EVER SEEN ESPECIALLY THE ONE WHO THOUGHT HE WAS THE BEST IN THE SOUTH. He had the big beg and I think he lost it on the last day! Go Marciano!

    Does Hebert have an ego problem or is he as good as he thinks he is? Hi history doesn’t seem to back him up.
