I have been following this series since the 1st season. Paul has a daughter. Carraro is single? If he is married, it's a very well kept secret. I think he flies solo. Tyler loves himself...nothing else matters.Ultimately,   I think it would be the Fisherman's prerogative weather too allow their families into the production of this show.As much as the viewer's would like to know, there is probably a privacy clause in their contract's somewhere. Hope that was helpful Bob.

@Bob Bell @Fermin B. I forgot to mention Boat Chartering. Marciano charters his boat to make ends meet. I'm sure there are others as well. To sustain a winter in New England they have to make more than 50K and that's the low end. So when you hear the fishermen complain about how will they feed their families and make ends meet if we don't catch fish, don't feel so bad. #1 They probably charter. #2 Nat.Geo.Provides them with a stipend. #3 It add's to the drama. Don't forget Boat Maintenance.

@Fermin B.  Thanks,  I guess what I was curious about was why the comment here always make it seem that it is highly unusually that a fisherman supports his family.

I've been following the show and theses comments since season  Many commenters have some knowledge of the fisherman and that leads to a few quick questions:

Is Marciano the only tuna fisherman in history to  be married with children? every third comment is some reference that his personal life makes him a great fisherman whether or not he catches fish.

Why is Dave hated so much?  His ego doesn't seem any larger than the rest of them, and over the first 3 seasons he's caught the most fish.  There are usually cracks that he's not married although I don't know why that mattes.

Is Pauley always drunk.

I can't believe some of the posters think Carraro was harsh. In season 2 Tyler lobbed water balloons at Cap'n Ralphs (psycho ralph) boat. One of them landed in the wheelhouse and exploded. Now i'm not a big Ralph fan but the balloon could have shorted out his equipment. Tyler thinks his high seas hijinks are funny. If he pulled this crap on Marciano, he would probably get a "Sicilian Necktie" fisherman style.I thought his attitude would change after last seasons fiasco North and South. The bottom line is, once a punk always a punk. I was actually rooting for him down there. Tyler will get his comeuppance eventually. Will he learn from it?...Who knows. Like I said once a punk, always a punk. Dave M. & Dave C. and TJ Ott are my favorites. I hope the Bluefin Gods treat them kindly this season.

Tyler has now caused problems with Ralph Wilkins, and Dave Carrero.  Both times messing with the Captains while they are at work.  Better Quit Messin, before you learn a hard Lessin young Man.

I think Dave is a soar loser he is blaming Tyler for his miss fortune he is the one behaving like a kid he never should have hit Tyler  I hope he file for assault charges again you Dave

Funny how Dave C calls Tyler "punk" "immature" and "no class" (yeah Dave, because name-calling is so mature and classy), but instead of being the adult in the room by brushing off Tyler's antics and rising above it, he lets Tyler push all his buttons and responds by sinking to his level.  Even though I can't stand him, I actually enjoyed the fact that dot.com was so far ahead of the fleet last year that we didn't have to hear "gotta beat pinhead, gotta beat pinhead" every time he opened his mouth.  Maybe if he was more focused on his own fishing than obsessing about what "pinhead" was doing, he's be off to a better start.

I am hoping that the pinwheel and the hard merchandise beat  fv-tuna.com as what he did on the show tonight was absolutely uncalled for and I hope that he gets arrested for assault after hitting boat owner of the pinwheel with that anchor boowe as that was totally uncalled for and in my book was in bad taste and shows his inmaturity and that he is no man to sucker punch someone like that and should be thrown off that dock so it does not happen again as all it is is he is mad because the pinwheel is winng and he can not catch a thing this year.

@Curtis Cole aw c'mon, maybe .com was just  joking around when he went upside tylers head with the anchor buoy.don't forget that tyler is a jokester too. he loves throwing water balloons at his competition. an anchor buoy is basically a water balloon so cararro gave him a dose of his own medicine. so whats the problem? GO .COM and my man Marciano!!

@fermin B.,,,YOUR RIGHT ,,,PUT YOU DO NOT HAVE BE SO HARD ON,,STILL LIKE PAUL...HATE TUNA ,COM// JUST FISH  MARCIANO

@joe cervoni Paul is okay but he can be a real jerk. he proved that when his older brother was on board. You will never hear .com complain about  being  poor mouth for the winter. Cararro is a very competitive fisherman. he loves the sport of it. sometimes he can overreact in certain situations. the point i'm making is that .com is the tried and true moneymaking boat in this fleet. i hope everyone in the 2014 season made money, especially my man Marciano.

Linda Stone

@joe cervoni What show were you watching?  Dave M wasn't "crying" about anything.  All he said was that while he was competitive, his first priority is catching fish to support his family.  IMO he's the only grown-up out there, more concerned with his family than obsessing on personal rivalries or one-upsmanship with the other boats.

Fermin B.

@joe cervoni What a hypocrite you are. Here you're complaining about dave m. and his bills. your man paulie is the biggest crybaby in the fleet. check out the past seasons bro and you will hear hebert constantly complaining...if we don't get no tuna, how will i feed my family in the off season. woe is me ...woe is me. paul needs the 2nd job so he can stop crying like a little girl.

After viewing the 2nd episode of season 4, i see that Tyler (although he can fish) is the same A****** he was in season 2.

Tyler is starting season 4 with a bang. That's sure to ruffle a few feathers, especially Dot Coms. Tyler's a punk who also knows how to fish. Marciano, Hot Tuna, and Paulie have their work cut out for them. As far as that 

A******  harpooner Bill Muniz goes....I hope his boat sinks!!!!

On a recent episode Paul commented, "looks like Marcianos rod is bent". Sadly the comment was made on shore.

Adorei ver a 3 temporada!!!!!

    tou ancioso para ver a 4 temporada, Paul pensa que tudo tem piada... mas nao tem!!!!! deve pensar que tá no Circo!!!! palhaço!!!!!!!!!! 

       Tyler é uma crianca estupida que devia prestar muito respeito a todos os pescadores e nao fazer confusao com todos!!!! por isso ficou em ultimo na 3 temporada!!!!!  Admiro muito e desejo sempre que Dave do tuna .com ganhe, e apanhe muitos atuns!!!!!!!! 

     É ridiculo todos falarem mal do tuna.com quando ele só faz o que lhe compete!!!!!!!  em vez de falarem.... aprendar a pescar!!!!!!!!!!! por isso ele é o melhor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It Seems this Show really sparks Emotion.  Good going NatGeo. Ricky, keep watching the seasons on Netflix, they only get better.  Soon you'll feel like you Know the guy's like a Neighbor or a Friend.

I just started watching the show, season 1, on Netflix, I am a recreational fisherman on inland rivers and lakes for small gamefish, I'm 41 years old and have been fishing since I was big enough to hold a rod, admittedly I don't have any experience with salt water fishing or fishing for a living, but as all fishermen know, even with all the knowledge a person gains over the years, luck still has a lot to do with fishing. I've got to say that Bill of the bounty hunter is fickle, a big cry baby and I hate the guy, when paul joined his boat, he cried and blamed paul for not telling the secrets of success from fishing with dave of tuna.com, then after catching the first fish he was singing paul praises, such a child! I don't know how the guy has been able to be a professional fisherman. And the same applies to Scott, Bills other mate. It's sickening how these two cry and cry, then catch a fish, and it's "paul is the greatest", you guys suck! Good on paul for being able to put up with such people.

Ok I know it is TV and exciting for them but come on the "family's" meet at sale spot where the cameras are. Normal family would be waiting at peer where boats are parked to walk daddy home. At every meeting it is the same so stop already. And what about having a Family Reunion for a family that has not been together/talked for 35 years....can we say camera? it was great to see the brothers and father talking fish but rest could have been left off, but we did find out that Paul is the losser of family too. Now there is a TV show...all the brothers fishing against each other.

So instead of wasting time with non fishing nonsense tell us about the fish. why export and not staying home? why dull hooks and not bigger sharper ones? how long waiting for bite and how long wasted? More about water temp and habits of migration of fish. what is limits beside 73 inches? See a lot of other info that would make the show better. Like the drawings of what happens when lines cross and such. LOVE IT.

so keep improving and ok to have idiots just keep the balance with the real fishermen.

Dave M is good but if I hear one more time about how many bills he has I will SCREAM. And since season 1 everyone has gotten onto the "poor me how will I support my family" bandwagon. Hey we all have bills we all have kids to pay college we all have house payments. That is not what i want to listen too when i watch. I find it hard to feel sorry for a guy that works for 10 weeks and makes more than some working all year. And if they dont make enough to support themselves for the year why cant you work the other 42 weeks? I know the show is only about this fishing season but come on give the watcher a little credit of having a brain. So they stop talking poor me and I will stop wanting to kick their butt and say "get a job" after the show. lol

Dave C might mention paying his crew but he keeps it professional. While Dave M is one of worst and cant seem to stop.

ok, here we are sitting at home watching TV saying "entertain me" I love most of the reality shows with competition and dealing with whatever mother nature throws at them. But I want the real deal. I want to watch professional men using their knowledge and wisdom to work and thats what we get...from a couple fishermen. Dave C is one of the best. He takes it serious and treats it like a real job, he is good to his crew and can joke around too.

Paul is the worst I have ever seen. He is one of those guys that talks loudest so no one will notice that he is doing nothing and knows nothing. I love when he gets his own boat but its his brother that knows and does anything. If he does not tell Paul what to do Paul is walking around trying to keep his head under his arm and hide. Put Paul on his own and I am not sure he could get boat out of peer. Switch Captains and it would be a great show to watch one brother having to put his foot up the other brothers butt. LOL

The money is not the focus, the adventure in catching the tuna is what is important to us; we sit around and watch the adventure with about 35 of our closest friends.

Wicked tuna is one of the most disgusting tv programs ever.

Some amatueres murdering the last which are left from a species that is on the verge of extinction.

Cant believe this is on national geografic.

So, The Professional Tuna Counter makes a comment,.. and Exactly how many Bluefin Tuna are left in our great Oceans?? or Should we go back to netting them to get an accurate count?? Daah...
