As Gloucester's bluefin tuna fleet charges into the heart of the fishing season, it's a tight race for the coveted title of top-earning boat. The fleet has its sights set on one boat — the Hot Tuna. Captain TJ Ott and his crew have held on to the top spot on the leaderboard since week one — and everyone wants to dethrone them. Any one fish could be the ticket to pushing someone into the lead, but landing the next prized tuna is easier said than done.
