Ahead of tomorrow’s season finale, Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks released an insanely intense clip of just how far these captains are willing to go to bring in that final catch. With only a few hours left until the quota closes, the crews are risking both their equipment and sanity for a chance to make it higher on the leaderboard. That final tuna could be just the push they need to walk away with the season win. But these creatures aren’t coming on board their boat without a fight.

One of the vessels still out at sea is the Offshore Outlaw with captains Adam and Eric Price, first mate John Michael Dickerson and their canine companion. Thankfully, their final day came with clear skies and calm waters, so reeling in a big bluefin would be that much easier.

Soon enough, the team of three had a bite on the line, and from how much Eric had to yank on his line, they knew it was going to be a big fish. The Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks stars traded off shifts at the reel when their arms tired from the long and arduous fight as their golden retriever cheered them on. Finally, they began to see the monstrous tuna’s colors appear underwater.

Watch what happens next in the clip from tomorrow’s episode of Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks.

Things get a little hairy when Dickerson struggles to crank on the reel without snapping the line. Meanwhile, Eric can’t seem to get a clear shot to spear the tuna. With the fish so close to the boat, the Offshore Outlaw crew risks having the tuna run the line underneath the boat. Once there, the fish can cut the line on the propeller or drag the anglers to the other side of the vessel.

“Stick it with something, I don’t care!” Dickerson exclaimed as Eric Price once again missed the shot with the spear.

His brother, Adam, abandoned his post at the boat’s controls to grab a spear and stick the fish himself. Even their dog seemed willing to jump in the water and retrieve the fish for them. Thankfully, though, Eric was able to recover in the knick of time and land the shot.

After an exhausting fight, the Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks crew finally caught their last tuna of the season. Excitedly, they hitched the rope to the bluefin’s tail and prepared to hoist their well-deserved catch onboard.

Even though the hard part was over, the win still isn’t a guarantee. Now, the crew will find out if their catch is big enough to get them higher on the leaderboard.

Don’t miss the enthralling episode this Sunday at 9/8 CT.
