    I truly enjoy the shows BUT why is it so important for the FV’s to kick one another’s ASS just fish. If it is the way NATGEO wants to format the show say so at the beginning if the captains are really as they are portrayed then you are the ASSES captains you know who you are Dave, Tyler.

    What kind of rush do you get when you catch a tuna and has any any of you cought two at a time on different. Lines of so what was that like

    Why doesn’t wicked tuna use actual prices/ lb these boats are getting for these fish. Price is not realized until these fish go to auction. It would make the show much more interesting if they followed the fish to auction , both domestically and in Japan. the prices that are aired are just fabricated for TV and are drastically incorrect. I fish in the fleet with all of these boats, and the real truth is this is not the money making bonanza the show makes it out to be. The marketing of these fish is corrupt, and the truth is the fisherman often get the short end of the stick when it comes to price/ pound. This would make for great tv. I feel that National geographic should be truthful if they are going to do a show like this. The truth is even if you are very good at catching these fish , it is very hard to make money doing it, because you are at the mercy of the buyers. This is not ” the Gold Rush” you are making it out to be.

    The channel airs non-fiction television programs produced by National Geographic and other production companies. Like History and the Discovery Channel, the channel features documentaries with factual content involving nature, science, culture, and history, plus some reality and pseudo-scientific entertainment programming.

    This is what Wikipedia says about national geographic channel . The discovery channel got in hot water with not being truthful about the Man vs. Wild show. ” non fictional” and ” factual” are just that . The truth is very entertaining, and in exposing the corruption you may help us fisherman get the price we deserve on these fish. We work very hard to catch these fish, and at the end of the day it boils down to supply, demand, and whatever the market brings, minus the buyers percentage. When I watch the show it makes me angry that the whole premise of the show is based on lies. None of these guys do this full time, because you can’t make $100,000/year as reported last year on the pin wheel. Be truthful , it’s a hard living, but we love it! If we can make some money at it , that’s great. but what appears to be a pile of money on the deck usually end up in disappointment after the fish go to market.

    do the Gloucester men always anchor and dead stick? in n.j. we frequently drift, and spool off line to have our bait keep pace w/ the chum slick. is one way better?

    I agree with Ned instead of using the estimated price they need to use the price they REALY GOT.These fish at times goes on consignment and the finial price may be a lot lower.Also ,let’s not make it look like this is the only thing they do all year to make money.These people also charter out there boat for other fish before the tuna season.Yes they work hard almost all year between them tuna fishing and there charter service.A good charter boat can do well on charters alone.

    It would be more interesting to know how long it took to land the fish?
    How much pay do crew members get?

    Thank you

    I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay, & made my living on the water for 4 years, l love watching the show ,but l don’t care for the animosity between the different boats, however, as true waterman, when it comes time to, they always set their differences aside,& come together as the true fishermen that, they are!

    I like the show and the boats. However the drama is no nessesary. Also. If a tuna is 1or 2 inches too short and gets harpooned…what happens? It’s hard to tell no?? Please respond.

    I used to mate on my uncles, boat during the early eighties our average dress size were in the seven hundreds, and all caught just south of block island, do you think they will ever return around here, I also see no one using quick anchor releases, we used to run line through bow eye on deck and down to side cleat just at mid ship

    Any sportsman would love this show as i do when the guys are trying to catch the big tuna. But i have no interest when the boats go out to spear one that has been located by an airplane it really take the sport and fun out of the show. That is when i take a restroom break or make a sandwich.

    Why do you guys anchor the boats when you catch fish? Why don’t you keep the anchor out of the water so there isn’t risk in the fish tangling up in the anchor line? How much does Nat Geo pay you guys per episode?

    Oh ya, why does Tyler seem to kidnap his crew at sea. Is that necessary? As a business owner ur people are everything. He should have given them a week off and made arrangements if he had a family. I’m also still sick from the waterskiing episode. What if a shark thought that was a seal? Searously? That. Lawsuit would have ended him. His practical jokes also make me cringe. Tyler your dealing with men’s livelihoods. When you have to feed a family you will respect, until then respect yourself.

    Hi guys. A quick hello to all you Capts. and crew. You guys have a job on your hands. It’s fun at times but stressful too. I’ve commercial fished for years in the gulf. Ran a supply boat for years and ended up running a sport fishing boat for some Louisiana oil guys. We marlin fished. Fished tournaments and had (at times) a camera crew on board with us. I know what all you fellas are going through with all that. Anyhow your show is a hit. I love it and can’t wait for new episodes. I take my hat off to each and everyone of you Captains and your crew. Good job guys. Marciano, keep em straight capt.

    Why wasn’t the First Mate Jarrett P. on the season finale of Reel Talk? Great fisherman, but I guess the owner of the boat was the grsat mate. That wasn’t right. TJ, I hope you don’t lose a great first mate. I guess your father (owner of the boat,) chose who the first mate on the boat was, eh? Jarret P., there are a few boats looking for a good first mate, without the family dramas and less money to spilt among the crew. Too bad, TJ, you did the “fishy” thing to Jarrett, so don’t complsin sbout the “Dave incident.” Now the “Ott stsb in the back.” Sorry I liked you watching the show until Rerel Talk. Good luck Jarret, hope you find a boat that recognizes you awesome abilities. RJ
