Dave Carraro, Captain of FV-Tuna.com, runs a tight ship. He knows the key to success on the water is all about who you have on your team.

Check your local listings.

Despite a respectable first week fishing solo, Captain Tyler McLaughlin recognizes that his chances of success are higher with a good crew. McLaughlin brings in two college friends who are great fun to have on board, but are inexperienced when it comes to fishing.
