    .
    Thanks for posting the link.

    I remember when they were looking for captains and boats to shoot this a few years ago, it got real quiet about the project not soon after the talent search and this is the first time I have seen any of the end product.

    Does anyone know was this broadcast on a cable network first or was this a Netflix project from day one?

    Should be interesting to watch, it will get picked to death I assume on the fishing forums unless they did a real good job keeping it straight.

    I was at my Docs getting a physical yesterday and he asked about how my fishing season went and after chatting a bit he told me about this show. He said the feller with the last name Owen was his cousin. He also said the other brother Chris Owen is on a show called fish or die. I am going to have to check them both out.

    It's basic drama- not bad on the fishing side, but also generated drama.

    The opening shot should have been dudes stumbling out of the Naughty Pine in Westport, not the Tatoosh trail in Neah Bay a 100 miles away. WTF

    Me and the kids watched a couple episodes last night, the wife wasn't happy with all the f-bombs but then again she's not on the boat with us much.

    We enjoyed it, especially the other boats hating on you. That's always a good sign.:finger:

    watched to episodes. It's Wicked Tuna. Smaller tuna, different method of catch but same personalities (boats), with a Deadliest Catch production style.

    But it was cool to see what the long fins look like. Been awhile since I have seen any. ha.
