Trials & Tunalations+
Every boat, except the Wicked Pissah, caught fish during the first week of Bluefin tuna season, so all eyes are on Captain Paul Herbert to land his first tuna. After a great season last year, a lot of people attributed all of Paul's success to the skill of his first mate-turned-rival Captain Brad Krasowski. Paul vows that he's going to prove all of his critics wrong.
It's been a long standing fishing belief that practicing good karma on the ocean brings good in return...but not every captain plays by the rules and not every captain can benefit from them.
Who Needs A Captain?+
The secret to a successful Bluefin tuna boat is having great mates. Prime example, Pinwheel. For the third consecutive week of tuna fishing season, Pinwheel leads the fleet with its first returning mates from a previous season. Will they be able to keep their streak going or will the dependable mates on Hot Tuna, greenhorn on Wicked Pissah, or family on Hard Merchandise blow them out of the water? Or maybe the two mates on FV-Tuna.Com, who fish without their captain onboard will make their mark on the fleet. One thing is for sure, the fleet may never be the same when one boat makes history with the biggest Bluefin tuna catch ever in the fleet.

Captain Paul Hebert of Wicked Pissah also chooses to remain in shore and wants to prove to himself that letting Lance go last week was the right decision. Meanwhile, Captain Tyler McLaughlin's season is on the brink of disaster. If Pinwheel can't catch this week, they could find themselves...
