Fishing is a hard life, and harder with bluefin stocks depleted. In Gloucester, Massachusetts, there's a special breed of fishermen. For generations they've used rod and reel to catch the elusive bluefin tuna. They depend on these fish for their livelihood, and the competition is brutal.
Over the next 10 weeks, the most skilled fishermen will set out in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic in hopes of catching the valuable bluefin tuna. When one bluefin can bring in as much as $20,000—they'll do whatever it takes to hook up.
I'm through three episodes so far, (a new one aired last night) and I am really enjoying this show. Like every reality show in its first season, the guys are sort of aware of the cameras and do things that are probably just for show, but they haven't actually seen themselves on the show yet and are probably as close to what they really are as they'll ever be.
The big thing that has me hooked (I apologize for using that term), is how much I want to see a couple of these guys actually catch a fish. In particular, I find myself rooting for Dave and for Bill & Donna whenever they are on the screen. Bill really needs to stop paying attention to Dave as much as he does, although it seems like they all need to pay less attention to Dave.
In one way, I kind of agree with Dave that they should all just go fishing and stop worrying about each other, but on the other hand it does seem that they are better off if they are all chumming and fishing in the same general area.
Best I can tell is that Dave must be a Yankees fan or something.
