Wicked Tuna: Behind the Scenes: Dave Marciano
Captain Dave Marciano talks about what it's really like to live with a cameraman on your boat for days on end.
Dave Marciano my names Richard I wanted to let you know that i am a HUGE fan of your's and Wicked Tuna I love the show and admire you! you are not like other people (getting into drama, trying to out fish one another and are at each others throats)! All though WINNING is great but you are out there making a living and thanking God for every fish you catch! I am getting ready to start tuna fishing i have been wanting to fish for a living my whole life and getting paid for it!! Now thats a job worth having! I have been in a boat since i can remember so i know i would like it! It was hard for me to see your ship under water! I couldn't imagine what you felt... I am glad to see you over came it! (Bad things happen to good people)! If you have any pointers for me please let me know! Keep it up and good luck fishing!
Dave i just want to complement you on your style, all the other captains are all out to get each other, where you just care about catching a fish or two to feed your family and put your kids through school. thats really cool. keep up your composer and i love the show. !!!!
Captain Marciano you're my hero! Met you at the Baltimore Boat Show a year ago and you're top class, real down to earth kind of person. If I ever come up north, I may look you you up for some charter fishing. Sorry to hear about all the unfortunate things with your boat but let's hope that it's all behind you and that this season you made up the difference with some good Tunas.
Love the show NGC!
The Lisa & Jake is by far the best out of all them,,,,Paul and his brother are the masters of Tuna Fishing...i mean Paul worked on the Tuna.com for over half a season...Lisa & Jake are the best now the other fisherman are great too but i dont care to much for Dave,,he does crap to people but when its done back to him he talks about people,,,,i swear i thought that there was only people like that around here,,,,,Keep up the work Wicked Tuna your show is the best!!
You are the best! Watching you work has actually taught me how to be a tuna fisherman. Hey it is an art you and your brother have mastered. The other guys are not in your class althugh the pin wheel kid may have it going on. Hang in there and kick sleepy Dave's ass. The kid that works for him (Sondro) could catch more fish by himself than having Dave on board. Just wanted to give him props also.
Hey I am retired, anybody up there need a mate that will work flat out 100%. It would be a perect partime job for me.
If you can catch up this year great if not get them next year and don't go back to the .com-ever !
May be up there this summer hope to be able to meet you
As a geographer and environmentalist, I cannot believe that National Geographic is airing such an atrocity. Bluefin tuna are being hunted to extinction... deliberately. The rationale being that the more scarce, the higher the prices these "wicked tuna" will bring in. Please don't watch this show and inform yourself on this issue. I will provide a link that will help you get started:
Please, no drama, on Wicked Tuna, like other such shows. Like my Grandfather used to say, "You gonna talk or fish."
