Wicked Tuna: Hooked Up Full Episode Guide

  • Tuna.com's Dave becomes obsessed with landing the biggest tuna of the season; Kevin attempts to exceed his largest catch; and Ralph may need to give up a lucrative catch in order to save the day.

  • Kevin is given the advantage when he catches an 1100-pound bluefin early in the day. Meanwhile, Dave Marciano deals with financial struggles.

  • The guys of Tuna.com have a productive day, while weekend recreational boaters stir up trouble for the rest of the fleet.

  • Marciano tries to deal with the reality of providing for his family despite being away from them so much. Bill and Ralph look for revenge on the guys at Tuna.com for sending them on a wild goose chase.

  • The premiere begins with the adrenaline rush of "monstah" hunting in Gloucester. It's mid season in Massachusetts, but this is when the money is made and tempers are hot. The captains load their boats with $3,000 worth of fuel, bait and ice, and then heads for open water where the blue gold is waiting. Things turn sour quickly when there's cash on the line. Bill and the Bounty Hunter are already struggling to stay out of the red, and their luck gets worse when a "dragger" severs their anchor line while at sea. Dave of Tuna.com flaunts his catch and fills Bill's ear with fictitious advice that sends the Bounty Hunter farther from the fish and deeper into the red.
