“Producers are in your area right now meeting tough, outgoing tuna fisherman to be featured on NatGeo’s “Wicked Tuna.” It’s the chance of a lifetime for any captain, deckhand, or charter service that wants to get their name or company on national television and show America what they’re made of.”

If you are interested, you can fill out the link here.

You can also send an email to WickedTunaCasting@gmail.com with the names of your crew. In addition, Pilgrim is asking for recent photos of you and your crew, along with your location, phone numbers, and a brief explanation as to why you should be considered for the show.

Wicked Tuna is a reality show that documents commercial tuna fishermen, who are either based in Gloucester, Mass., or the nearby area, who are on the hunt for lucrative bluefin tuna in the North Atlantic Ocean. The show premiered on April 1, 2012.

The captains have to adhere to the size limits and quotas for the season.

Presently, the group includes The Falcon’s Dave Marciano and FV-Tuna.com’s Dave Carraro. Both of these men have been on the show since season 1.

PinWheel’s Tyler McLaughlin joined in Season 2 and The Hot Tuna’s TJ Ott joined in Season 3. The Wicked Pissah’s Paul Herbert has been a captain since Season 5.
