I can't watch it, it annoys the $hit out of me. I hope I never see any of them on the water.
Mr. Sandman....do not judge all fishermen because of a few. Apparently the business that U R in does not use the F word..... in todays world it is one of the most common used words...some fishermen R educated...some probably more then U R....Dave of tuna.com is educated....a very good commercial fishing friend of mine is a graduate of Harvard and there R others....I know of a few lobstermen that have graduated from BU and Boston college. I wonder what some people think of EMT's

Recently at Monte's steak house I had to have the waitdress calm down the table next to ours...four people in dress suits and ties were using the word quite freguently...My brother in law was almost thrown out of my house because he used the F word... very well educated at that.

This is 100% directed and edited by the producers. These guys are not idiots, they don't talk like this in real life. I'm across the dock from Ralph Pratt. Do you ever hear him on the radio sounding like an idiot?

Seas 20-25 feet?
The boat that won't start, yet you can see land in the background.

The reality is that they tried to make a reality show on staring at a balloon for 13 hrs a day. That's reality. It's miserable, it's boring. They haven't shown George's except for the first episode. I saw George's this summer where there was so many boats hooked up at one time, people were practically crashing into each other with fish on the line.

For that first 5 minutes that fish takes off, it's heroin. Trying to replicate that in a 1 hr show is useless, especially inshore tuna fishing, which is essentially lottery fishing.

They also never filmed the part where one of the captains on the show comes up to my buddy on the dock and apologizes for causing a scene. "it was for the show".

Typhoon is right on the money

In the last episocde they tried to pass off the Capt of the Tuna Hunter Gary as a "Charter from HI". Show is a complete fabrication with tuna fishing as the back drop.

Make sure you keep your regular job.... the old saying is:"If you want to go broke go tuna fishing."

I fished on the Tuna Hunter last year with Gary. I was trying to figure out what the hell the client comment was about. Gary seemed to know more about what was going on than the crew on the boat did.
