There’s a special breed of fishermen in Gloucester, Massachusetts, whose lives depend on their rod and reel and the bluefin tuna they catch with them.  When a single fish can bring in upwards of $20,000, you know they’ll do anything they can to hook it. The National Geographic Channel’s Wicked Tuna  follows these skilled fishermen over 10 weeks as they set out in the North Atlantic in search of the bluefin. The competition will be brutal.

The new season of Wicked Tuna premieres Sunday, February 16, at 9/8c on the National Geographic Channel (Channel 276).
