I don't know who's job it is to keep the episode guide up to date for Wicked Tuna, but somebody has dropped the ball, I GUESS I'LL JUST QUIT WATCHING THE SHOW, thx.

Paul Hebert is the most arrogant, irritating, sneaky, cheating SOB on the show. Maybe his boat will sink. What goes around comes around. It is one thing to try and make a living, another to be out right nasty to the other captains.

Hey,New Sheriff, Cap'n Bill (Hollywood) Muniz, why were you absent on Reel Talk's season finale?I'll tell you why....you wrote a check with your mouth your ass could'nt cash you big blowhard. You are no fisherman, you're a loud bragging "Jerk-Off"!

To All Captains:  Why do you think there is such a disparity in what is paid by the different buyers of the tuna?

Why did Tyler kick his old crew to the curb?  Did he think he could pay his fun college friends in weed and keep all the profits for himself?

On a show 2 weeks ago .com Cap'n Dave Carraro called Paul (I don't want to go as far as to call him a Cap'n) Hebert,"Half That". That was a good zinger.Totally on point.What happened Paul? Last season I rooted for you.This season you showed your true colors.Carraro,win or lose consistently out- fishes all boats in the fleet ....that is the fleet that NGC highlight's.Don't really see any other boats in the Bluefin community outside of the ones they feature. I would like to see the other boats fishing bluefin as well.Grow up paul and maybe you could be half the man your brother is...then again,you already "Arrrrrgh"mate!

I fished for a few years down the cape, from 1998-2001, watching the show makes me want to go back fishing. I'd rather be back on the boat than deal with traffic

Bounty Hunter,keep scott's replacement....you landed one.Marciano should offload his bluefins where .com offloads.I know the market varies but .com always get's more per lb.I think their rippin tou off.I know it' easier said than done.If it mean's having money for winter...give it a shot. Go TJ.

I happened to see season 1 episode 4 where Marciano chartered his boat to a group of anglers. He told a story about Sully. Sully was on the Andrea Gail when it went down in the "Perfect Storm".He said he borrowed a couple of hundred from him the night before their ill fated trip, and still owes him the money.Marciano, you could'nt give any of his surviving family the owed money to make things right? In their time of need. Real bad karma man. Your boat sank, your not catching....see what I mean. C'mon Dave,do the right thing. I know you have some good in you.
