DESCRIPTION

Fearless fishermen of Massachusetts returns to your screens for a brand new series of Wicked Tuna to battle the elements and each other to catch one of the biggest, smartest and fastest fish in the world - the giant bluefin tuna.

These hard-core fishermen use only a rod and reel to capture a beast that can swim at over 40 mph and weigh up to 900 kg.

As the demand for tuna doesn’t show signs of diminishing and numbers dwindle due to overfishing and unfair practices, one big catch can really reel in the money.

With one ‘monstah’catch bringing in as much as $20,000 is it all worth it?

One thing is certain, these fishermen have their work cut out for them.

Will they be able to reel-in the catch of their lives or return with empty buckets?

Find out in brand new episodes Thursdays at 9PM.
