Wicked Tuna: North vs. South is an American television series that premiered on National Geographic Channel in 2014. The show is a spin-off of the popular Wicked Tuna series and features some of the best fishermen from the North and South competing against each other for the ultimate prize- the Atlantic Bluefin Tuna.

The series is set in the coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean, more specifically in the New England area of the United States. The show follows the lives of some of the most skilled fishermen from the North and the South, who are in constant competition with each other to catch the biggest tuna. Each episode focuses on the lives of a different team, as they set out to sea in search of their prize catch.

The teams featured on the show are made up of a group of 3-4 fishermen, each with their own unique style and approach to the sport. They have to navigate through treacherous waters, face unpredictable weather conditions and deal with the challenges of catching the notoriously elusive Bluefin Tuna. The show is not just about the competition but also about the stories of the fishermen and how they deal with the highs and lows of this demanding profession.

One of the most popular characters on the show is Rob Naughton, the captain of the Hot Tuna, a fishing vessel owned by his family. Rob is a third-generation fisherman from Gloucester, Massachusetts, and has been fishing for bluefin tuna for over 30 years. He is considered one of the best fishermen in the North and has built a reputation for himself as a skilled and determined captain. Rob is known to push his crew to their limits in order to catch the biggest fish and has been featured on the show since its inception.

Tyler is not just a great fisherman but also a savvy businessman and has been featured in various fishing magazines.

The third member of the North team is Timothy James Ott, the captain of the Hot Tuna. Timothy is a young and promising fisherman from South Portland, Maine, who has been fishing for bluefin tuna for over a decade. He grew up fishing with his father and grandfather and has built a reputation for himself as a skilled captain. Timothy brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the show and is often seen pushing his team to their limits.

The South team is made up of some of the best fishermen from the Carolinas, who are in fierce competition with their counterparts from the North. The South team is led by Captain Greg Mayer, who has been fishing for bluefin tuna for over 30 years. Greg is a proud Southerner and brings a lot of southern charm to the show. He is known for his easy-going personality and his ability to get along with other fishermen, regardless of their origin.
