Boats Over Troubled Waters

Captain Charlie Griffin of Reels of Fortune has the top earning of the fleet, but is not immune to the troubled waters our fishermen seem to have found themselves in. After hitting the Oregon Inlet’s infamous Bonner Bridge, a $10,000 repair bill has left him struggling to break even. Meanwhile Dave Marciano, who also had a nasty run-in with the bridge, has yet to reel in a single tuna.

Tensions are running high on the seas, especially aboard the Doghouse where Captain Britton Shackelford’s newest deckhand and son, attempts to prove himself a good fisherman to his father. Austin Shackelford suffers from seasickness and is still just a greenhorn—will he be able to nab a tuna for his father? Or will the tides take a turn for the worst for our fisherman?

See what happens on an all new Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks, tonight at 9/8c.
