Captain TJ vs Captain Tyler on #WickedTuna Season 3!

Captain Tyler McLaughlin Gets Video Bomb by Captian TJ

I have no clue about fishing, although I had an ex-boyfriend that was into Bonefish and Tarpon fishing. He invited me once and that was the extent of my experience with fishing.  In contrast with millions of viewers who last year were captivated by the pulse-pounding battles, intense hardship and relentless determination of Gloucester’s Bluefin tuna fishermen from the reality show titled “Pesca Pesada” (known as Wicked Tuna in English) returning with an all-new third season of danger and drama on the high seas.

National Geographic Channel and NAT GEO Mundo picked Miami for its Wicked Tuna Season Three Premiere over cocktails at the fabulous Meat Market and actual screening took place at the enchanting Colony Theatre in Lincoln Road, appropriately during Miami Boat Show weekend.  I decided to interview Captain TJ Ott and Captain Tyler McLaughlin which happen to be BIG time rivals: Captain TJ is older, experienced, McLaughlin’s former mentor and is very confident in winning third season, while Captain Tyler last year season’s winner knows he has a tough road ahead as others will be gunning him.

Captain TJ talks BIG rivalry with Captain Tyler:

Wicked Tuna captures the intense battles, fierce competition, crushing losses and major paydays of a group of salty fishermen from the nation’s oldest seaport, Gloucester, Mass.   Their philosophy is simple. Go fish. Or go home. There is nothing in between.

In addition offering an inside look at one of America’s oldest industries, Pesca Pesada also sheds light on important issues surrounding the fate of the bluefin tuna. As the scientific community debates how best to preserve the species, American fishermen, including the Pesca Pesada captains, continue to adhere to U.S. regulations that determine size limits and quotas for the season. Viewers are encouraged to add their voices to the conversation via the website at, which also features articles, links and message boards devoted to the tuna and oceans.

Wicked Tuna Premieres Sunday, February 16 at 9pm ET/PT  on Nat Geo Mundo and National Geographic Channel.
