I am watching your way and your style from Indonesia,
have a good luck and hoist the tuna
two Fingers regards.
I grew up summering in Montauk,my mom and I lived on our boat and my dad would fly out on weekends to fish,and my Uncle Ralph Pitts(,who met my dad when he would meet him off of Montauk Point and pick up the booze that my father brought on his boat) was a charter fisherman who was so succesfull that by the end of June,he was booked solid through September both in shore which was 2 trips a day and offshore,my Aunt Margaret started Montauk Charter Service in order to book the other captains with Uncle Ralphs overflow.When I see Capt.Dave he reminds me so much of my Uncle,his passion and attention to detail is why he's #1,plus,he appreciates his stellar crew and let's them know that.Dave,when you land a Tuna I'm just as,if not more excited then you and your crew because you deserve to be #1.Gee,I think I may have a crush,you are the best looker in the fleet as well as your crew.
Love the show and FV Tuna.com is my favorite boat..........I think Mailman is a fellow Mainer from a
town next door to Scarborough..........and Dave is a hard working and very focused owner..and Sandro
is very good at most everything.......keep the lead forever...........
Dave, when is your new boat going to be ready? Any build pictures and how are you outfitting it. Big jump in size.
Dave C and crew,
You guys get a bad rap and sometimes I can see the competition is so strong in you and I understand how hard you have to work to get where you are now..... Being a police officer (now disabled) I know what its like to sometimes be viewed as the bad guy and most of the time its the guy on top who gets the negative comments... Bottom line is you do your job and you do it better if not best then the others that catch tuna in the only fair way to do so (cant stand the netters of the sea, they will be the end of our sea food chain if we don't do something about them)... You guys use a method that is honestly the most fair to fish and to the industry... I have even seen you help Dave M. when he needed it and Im sure there are others that I have not mentioned that you came to their aid... I like the competitiveness yet caring for your fellow fisherman... When you are good your good so continue your success as well as I wish this for you all... Maybe one day I'll be in town and can say hello...
Dave and crew , I enjoy watching you. I also can't believe how big a idiot Tyler is , I wonder if its a put on for TV ? anyway you and hard merchandise is our family's favorite.
I hope this show stays on for many many years !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My Sunday night men... Ur an awesome group & r in a class of ur own.... Good luck tonight....Fellow Female Angler :)
Hi Dave and Co, I just love seeing you and you're crew, there are no doubt about that you, and sandro and mailman, are the most intelligent and nicest persons of all the boats, you're behavior are why you're so blessed, with catching tuna, the best part was when you fired that bad person Paul, I can't stand him and his bad adétude, but that is how it is with, small guys like him they always have to make them I center "see me, see me" I really can't stand that guy...
keep on the fight.

Dave - I'm impressed! You've become SO "Human" this season! I was really impressed that you abandoned your own quest for Tuna, along with your Ego, to go help in the rescue effort; and then your emotional reaction to the tragedy! Once you realize you've become a Role Model, it becomes very appropriate to elicit your best behavior. And you have! Love it. I'm a fan!
You guys are doing great!! think you guys in the tuna fleet should work together and let each other know if you seem to have a hot spot,, but, anyways,,,, I think you should invent a BETTER HOOK that when the tuna grabs it,, and you start to pull on the line the hook is made in two parts and releases to form an extension (like when you pull the line the hook springs out and makes a curl around the jaw bone of the tuna,, or when you pull the line the hooks "little prongs" spring out (something like that) and also a less chafable line. Nothing is so hard to watch than losing a huge fish. just a thought for what it is worth. Bill
season 3 ep9 so far your getting better dave a little praise and listening to your crew is paying off remember your only as strong as your weakest link, but your good as a team keep it up, hope you stay at the top of the leader board well done team FT_Tuna and what a good 9 hrs battle.
great show we are on episode 15 i think but would really like to know when some of the tuna are hoisted off at the dock there is a slice taken off the gill area , why is this?
Dave, I love to go out on a tuna trip just to experience it. Do you even entertain that? What would it cost me?
Keep fishin' you guys and don't worry about the other boats. You got the method, the crew, and the gear to do the job. Stay away from the others and concentrate on your fish. I know you have to put a show on for NG, but just keep fishin,,,,,,,,,,,
Dave has gone from bad to worse. First he was always trying to be a Reel Hog, wanted to be the hero. Instead of letting Sandro learn, experience etc. to become a world class fisherman, No. He has to run over & elbow the poor kid out of the way. Funny but them he always loses the fish off the line! Now he loses more fish than anyone else on the show. Worst, I can't stand a grown man who begrudges his fellow fisherman whenever they have a bite on the line. What a poor sportsman to say things like "I hope he loses it" (the tuna) etc. These are men just trying to earn a living, feed their families. Yet he is the most greedy & jealous fisherman I have ever seen. Over & over we hear him say "I wanna catch the most fish, more than everybody else" No wonder he has such bad luck, Karma, whatever ~ HE EARNS IT! For all of You that think he's so wonderful, maybe You missed the show recently when he snuck over to the Hot Tuna, T.J. Ot's boat. Where he pretended to be civil but was only there to steal co-ordinates!. Then he ran out to T.J's honey hole & got caught just like the sneaky bast___ that he really is. He even admitted it on National TV! Oh Yeah, ain't he wonderful? So much class...NOT!
Dave's boat is my favorite because he is about fishing. He is willing to go after it when the other boats hit the road. If I would have the opportunity to fish on any boat in the fleet it would be the dot com. I might have more fun on another boat or less work on another, but when it comes to catching fish Dave is committed! I am committed like that too so I know that I would be an asset on the boat with my fishing ability and I would be on a boat that is about it like me. You might be sucking on a hind tit right now but I know as the season wears on you will be at the top.
Stop feeding all the tuna!! No wonder why the rest of the guys are having such a hard time getting the tuna to bine!!
At the end of the show, in the credit, there is a disclaimer about FV tuna.com. Could someone tell me what it says? And no, I don't have dvr so I cannot freeze the frame to read it. Thank you. Also, so ready for the new season tomorrow! Enjoying the marathon that's on right now! Love the show.
People will always try to take the most successful competitor down. You hold yourself and your crew to a higher standard. I want my kids to be able to watch you and your show, but the language ( bleeps ) sometimes makes it difficult. Please avoid the bad language for filming. I am not a boyscout , but when it's family time I watch what I say. I appreciate it and Good Luck!
Hey Dave and crew. Wish you guys a safe and successful season. Just got in my jacket and some other stuff I ordered. The guys you have doing this are super and the product is awesome! We have a new bass pro shops opening this weekend and looking forward to showing my support! Glad to see Sandro as always, but glad Garon made it back, seems like a positive guy.
Dave and the crew are level headed and hard workers, he made the right decision to get rid of Paul he was creating too many problems on the boat last season as well as bad mouthing the Captain...... I think that they are going to win this season.....
That cry baby that stole Paulie and his fat blow hard brother or family member are just cry babies that can't find their rear ends with both hands much less the fish.
Dave and Sandro are better because they work harder and know more. Tell them to kiss off when they whine and cry for you to tell them where they are .
Please post your website so I can ask you a few questions. I am a Oklahoman living in Colombia South America and would like some advise . All we have down here is Yellow Fin but I bet Dave would know what to do. Thanks
Tuna.com- please start your own website . so we can just chat with you . Not interested in the others . Mariciano is a good man . He is a little jealous of you but who wouldn't be . He is still a good guy to with a nice family . Those other guys are just ate up with pathetic jealousy . If you have a website please post it . Tried Tuna.com and could nopt get it . Sandro should start one for you guys .
Dave is the man . I like Marciano too . Thoose other dumb nuts can't find their a** with both hands and just whine and cry about needing Dave to tell him where all the fish are. I would tell them to MUCK off and find their own fish . The only thing worse than that old curly headed blonde man is hisFAT BLOW HARD brother or family member that gets so angry because Dave won't help them ''the right way '' LOL You know who I am talking about . The guys that took Paulie from Dave .
DAVE AND SANDRO OUT FISH THEM NOT BECAUSE THEY KNOW SOMETHING THE OTHER DON'T BUT BECAUSE THEY '' OUT WORK '' EVERYONE ELSE -
ALSO I get sick of that one owner who hires and fires the pirate all the time and goes fishing by himself bragging about how much of a stud he is and how dangerous and much or a risk taker he is . Please he is an idiot woosie-
Dave my only advise that I could possibly give you is not to show anyone that you are worried when one of the others get lucky and land a big fish because NONE of them are even the same zip code as you. So what they get lucky . The world can see that they get lucky and you work smartly to get yours.
Good Job Tuna.com enjoy the crap out of watching you do what I would love doing to make a living .
Dave, Congrats on another Great Season, it was best to let Paul go, and as far as Sandro goes.....is a OUTSTANDING Fisherman and Deckhand!!!...
I don't know why more people don't vote for Dave. He's level headed, safety conscience, and good hearted.
I think the problem is too many people are influenced by the thought the leader (aka succseful) must
go down and be defeated) Give'm hell Dave, those punk kids on the pinwheel are disrespectful to you, other fisherman and the sport. On the show they spend half their time dissing or discussing Dave and Tuna.com
Every group of fisherman brings something to the show. But you can't beat the professionalism and order that Dave has on his boat!!
Paul is a character, Tyler's crew is fun but Tyler himslef needs to show a little respect. All though I believe it's a lilttle scripted.
Reminds me of bowhunting big whitetails, hours sometimes, days of tortorus boredom, followed by my an hour of pure, unlimited exctiement!!! Would love to spend a couple of weeks onboard just as an observer!!!
Please change the picture that KOOK paul is gone! What is his problem? Is he always that imature or did he get dropped on his head when he was young? His three year old vocabulary and grinding rants make me want to stop watching. When he starts deficating from the mouth I turn the volume down. Am I the only person who feels this way. I was bothered enough to wrtite this and I assure you this is not something I would normally do.
Change the picture Paul is gone! I just wish he was gone from the whole show. That squid is wicked imature! He reminds me of a five year old who consumed too much pepsi. Aint that a pisser. On the west coast we call him a KOOK.
You would probally would catch more fish if you would worry about yourself and stop worring about everybody else or not. Paul is going to run all over you. Drop the attitude
I know the kids talks a lot of s***, but when I saw him single handedly pull in the 78" by himself he's got the ultimate bragging rights hands down. All the other scuffs just complain like girls. Come on guys, GUY-UP!
Leaving the .com was probably the push that was needed to move forward Paul. That actually was a very very good thing that happened. Now instead of just getting a small % of the catch your getting the big checks instead of the guy that didn't appreciate your contribution to his bank account . Money is the bottom line here and guy's such as your self are worth there weight in gold out there, too bad sneaky D never realized it. Now he will!! Good Luck to ya : -)
@Debski . Winners and losers are consistent...easy pick, Dave to win or be very close. All the rest is just a TV show for entertainment. I guess some dummies believe in the "put on", too too naïve, will bite at any bait.
@Debski . blah blah blah.... that's why they call it a competition....duh I've also heard him say good luck & good things to his fellow fishermen... Of course they want to catch the most & will do anything to get there....
@Rosalinda Dizon wish I knew as well. Had not noticed, but good luck!
