Bobby Earl Offers Up What Actually Led Him Him To Join Show
It’s always interesting to find out why some captains were led to join “Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks.”
Let’s check on Captain Bobby Earl and see what his reasons were for signing up to hit those Outer Banks.
So, he said in the season before joining the show, his “Reel ‘E Bugging” crew fished alongside all of the other boats on the show.
“There was a scene where Dale from ‘Foolish Pleasures’ is screaming at me,” Earl said. “He thought I was gonna cut his fish off.”
In talking about what happened, well, Earl reenacted the scene for his interviewer.
“‘Bed Bugs! Turn right, Bed Bugs,'” Earl said. “The rest is history.”
His fishing boat’s name has a lot to do with his previous job as a bug exterminator. Earl’s main focus was getting rid of bed bugs. Therefore, the name of his boat.
Outsiders, keep up with Earl and Horning out in the waters off North Carolina’s coast.
