The largest fleet boat The Hot Tuna captained by the charismatic T.J. also returns as does Herbert on the Wicked Pissah –  the man with a small boat but a big personality. There is also a new boat in the form the Fish Hawk.

He’s taken a big personal gamble this season by striking out on his own by purchasing Novi trawler the Fish Hawk and moving his family to Maine.

The series follows the fishermen of Gloucester, Massachusetts, as they pursue their catch of bluefin tuna with rod and reel. It might be one fish at a time but a large bluefin can fetch over $20,000.

Catch Wicked Tuna – The First Fish Is the Hardest at 9:00 PM on National Geographic Channel.
