Wicked Tuna looking for new boats, cast members
By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher
Are you a tuna fisherman in the New England area? Pilgrim Media Group is looking to add boats and crew to their hit TV show Wicked Tuna.
According to a post on their website, National Geographic is casting new boats for the show.
“Do you know a fiercely competitive, dynamic crew?,” the post said. “Are YOU on that crew? If so, we want to hear from you TODAY!
“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, deck hand 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 your 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 fisherman, 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.
In addition, The Fish Hawk’s Brad Krasowski has been on the show since Season 6. On this season’s show, Ralph Wilkins in The Odysea — who last competed in Season 2 — reappeared and has been catching bluefin tuna.
