Wicked Tuna returns for a third season this Sunday at 9P. New captains and old rivalries heat up the competition.
With the first fish of the season on the line, the fishermen of Gloucester, Massachusetts set out for Jeffrey’s Ledge in hopes of making the first catch of the North Atlantic Bluefin Tuna season.
Hot-shot captains Tyler McLaughlin (Pinwheel) and Dave Carraro (FV-Tuna.com) start the season right where they left off, both trying to assert their dominance over one another yet again. Meanwhile, an accomplished Captain from their past is steaming for Gloucester waters determined to eclipse them both. Meet the newest Captain to Wicked Tuna:
At the end of last season, Captain Dave Marciano’s fishing vessel the Hard Merchandise sank, leaving the already struggling captain’s prospects of returning this Tuna season gloomy. Now with thousands of dollars in time and borrowed money invested, the cautiously optimistic captain is ready to hit the water and get on the fish quick to pay off his debts and turn a profit for his family.
Now, at the start of the season, each Captain has the ability to write their future yet again. They have the opportunity to put thoughts of the past behind them and rise to the occasion. Catching as many Bluefin Tuna and the massive paychecks they’ll take home as a result is the only thing on their minds. It’s anyone’s title to win and an even playing field… for now! You can see how the captains stack up in the Wicked Tuna Leaderboard and vote for your favorite captain.
