Now that TJ is back in town, Tyler doesn't have any numbers to be competitive. Show me where the fish are and my grandmother could compete.

Tyler McLaughlin may have won last season, but he is also a very weak professional.  No wonder no one wants to work for the guy.  His immaturity is costing him crew and performance...

Great respect for the town of Boston and how they came through such devastation as the bombing of the Marathon. Of course I love this show and all the Captains making a living in a tough industry. After watching 'Inside the Hunt... the true heart of Boston showed and I have even more respect. All the best to the fishermen and the town!!!

Have great respect for all trying to make a living in this industry, but Dave M. is a favorite of mine.  Hollywood may be a nice guy, but from what I see on TV he is too much about himself.

Rooting for them all! Anyone trying to make a living and feed their families or go to school doing this grueling work is a winner in my book. I hope they all do well in what looks like will be a rough season!

Hello, can NatGeo set up a Wicked Tuna web page that provides statistics by boat per season for additional stats?  Some examples would be hook ups vs. landed fish, number of fish caught, size of fish in pounds, $/pound of each fish, the price per pound the fish was sold at, hours with lines down, number of harpoon throws to harpooned fish, and where fish was caught (for example George's Bank vs. Coastal catches etc.) 


A lot of guys like to follow stats and this competition has an excellent stat series that REALLY can show who the skilled crew is, who got lucky, etc.  Frankly these stats are much more interesting than baseball stats...


Please advise.


Thank you,


Will

Thank you to @JeffreyMead for hopefully helping me get Dave Marciano's attention about Jason taking the Lord's name in vain! (see below for those of you who didnt see my earlier post about this). When it is all over it will not matter if you have a lot of men that voted for you, if you have allowed other people much less your employees to take God's name in vain & say nothing about it! Exodus 20:7 you will not go unpunished. REPENT & get the curse off your boat! I can not & will not be around someone who takes the Lord's name in vain especially the ones that do it over & over like it's not as bad as any other curse word! If you really want to be sure your family has thier needs met I would definitely respect the GREATEST Fisherman that ever walked on water!

Captain Dave Marciano, is by far my fav!! Hard work, integrity , he is an exellent example for all in the tuna industry . For the rest of the group they need to check their enormous egos at the dock. I am sick of hearing how great they think they are, just go catch some fish and close your mouths. They are making themselves out to be a bunch of tools!!! GO Hard Merchandise!!!

I have been watching for 2 seasons and I have seen them all.  I think that TJ would have to be a favorite due to his attitude and knowledge.  His dad gives the boat a little edge (both fishing and with his attitude) and they are a fun group to watch.  2nd would have to be Dave Marciano.  He seems to be a great guy and a good fisherman.  Need to have a talk with Jason here Dave.  Don't let him jinx your boat.  If I had to choose a 3rd boat it would be between Lily and Tuna.Com.  Both great boats and good crews.  Don't think you could charter the Lily though.  I could care less if Pin Head catches any more fish.  That kid needs a good lesson in manners as well as a good @&& kicking.  What a punk.  Make a name for yourself on your own merit, not on the merits of others numbers.  Love the show!!!  Would really like to be able to go out and fish with one of these guys.

I love watching Wicked Tuna BUT, this week (6) I was so disgusted with Jason Meunzner using God's name in vain over & over again. I THOUGHT...SHAME ON YOU WICKED TUNA FOR NOT BEEPING IT OUT BUT, NOW I REALIZE if you had I would not have realized God's blessing & curses in week 6. Anyone else know what I'm talking about? Jason Meunzner on the Hard Merchandise Crew lost 1 fish then took God's name in vain several times..he then hooked a second fish & lost it & continued to take God's name in vain. HOW IS THAT WORKIG FOR YOU Jason? Dave Maciano the captain of the Hard Merchandise Crew kept a good attitude but, Dave M. letting Jason do this on your boat is worse than having a boat full of BANANAS...EXODUS 20:7 WARNS US THAT IF you take the Lord's name in vain you will not go unpunished... Loosing 2 Tuna-fish back to back had to HURT! No I'm not a religous fanatic BUT, I am a believer! & the PROOF was plain to see week 6! Meanwhile....the mate on FV-Tuna was praying to our Lord...You might have heard he was the GREATEST Fisherman there ever was...catching boat loads of fish when no one else was....walking on water... not to mention feeding 5000 people with one little basket of fish! FV-Tuna.com were BLESSED with a 497# Tuna & is now at the TOP of the board. I love it when God blesses his people!

Hard Merchandise and Captain Dave Marciano's crew is who I am hoping to see climb from the ocean's floor to the season's ending leaderboard.  They best represent the iconic Tuna fisherman that this show is based upon. I am disappointed that the creators of "Wicked Tuna" have lost this theme, let's get back to spending more time each episode hooking, landing, and bringing the tuna to market. I would have expected more from such a historic organization as the National Geographic Society.

I've never seen more of a D**kHead than Paul Hebert. He even sounds like the troll who lives under a bridge. I'll take anyone but him.Now that's a Wicked Pissah,all over his deck. Enjoy... Tyler, you've got to stop messing with diseased wenches, it shows all over your face. Even Daddy's money won't cure what you've got.

Is it terrible that I scream "Yes", everytime Tuna.com loses a fish?  I just cannot stand how cocky Dave is.  Quite the contrast from Hard merchandise Dave.  Always rooted for him since the first season!:)

Hard Merchandise is my favorite!!  The bananas were classic!! Poor Bounty Hunter felt so bad for them last season!! Hope they do better. .com I dont know why dave complains about other boats taking his spot He did the same thing to hot tuna!!  Pauly just cracks me me up!! Looks like  so far Tyler had beginners luck last season....needs to mature some!! 

Jordan Kent

Love Marciano...Love Paul & his crew...Tyler is a little baby...Hope Bounty Hunter has a good year...Can't stand Dave on .com but like his crew...I like Hot Tuna but I really Hope somebody from Gloucester ends up on top this year...Heck anybody but Tyler...He is a good fisherman but needs a lot of work on his team building skills!! Would Love It if Wicked Pissah spanked the whole fleet!!! Coming out on top would also be great for Hard Merchandise!!

Great show - great cast..

*  Bounty Hunter needs to up there game to be worthy of staying on the show.

*  Pin head needs to get laid.

*  Tuna.com needs to get a proper haircut.

*  Hard Merchandise - "keep on keeping on".

*  Wicked Pissah - Chowd so hard..

*  Lilly - Playing a different game but still interesting.

*  Hot Tuna - From day one all the others are fighting for second.

@Kim Hall Are you kidding me? Who are you to throw stones at other people? I do not like swearing either but I do not hold myself up to be someone who judges others and goes so far as to say " you will not go unpunished." Take a look at your own life and quit trying to play God! Is it you or God who will ultimately judge us? In addition, "judge not, least thee be judged!" Shame on you! People who try to place themselves above others are most likely the people God is looking at the hardest! Now turn the channle, quit trying to play God and look at yourself! Oh, who says you have to be around Dave or Jay?

Nikki Peterson

@Kim Hall The Hard Merchandise was catching fish and will catch more fish whether a crew mate swears or not. I have heard almost everyone at one time on each of the boats use "God's name in vain". It did not have any effect on their catching or not catching fish. Stop playing "Holier Than Thou" and turn the channle! Stop watching, get a grip and quit trying to Play, 'I'm better than everyone else and I have God's blessing to take over judging other people!

@Kim Hall  I agree with you~~~Actually hurt my heart when I heard Jason take Gods'name in vain~~~Just doesn't fit the show or anything for that matter !!
