“Out in the OBX, you make your own luck, but sometimes you just… Run out. A new episode of #WickedTuna: Outer Banks airs tonight at 9/8c on National Geographic,” cites the show’s official Twitter Sunday. Now there’s a hook for you, Wicked Tuna fans. See what we did there?
Dave and the rest of the OBX anglers seem to be up to their necks in peril. Color this Outsider intrigued for tonight’s episode, to be sure. Check the brief teaser for yourself below, before seeing Captain Marciano’s own tease for upcoming events.
“New episode tonight be sure to Tuna in,” Marciano retweets of the teaser. Within, his family takes to the waves and lands a giant of their own.
From watching his longtime “partner in crime” a.k.a his Hard Merchandise vessel sink in 2012, to the insane 2020 Wicked Tuna season, Captain Dave knows a thing or two about peril on the high seas. In his latest personal clip, however, it’s all sunshine, good times, and tuna:
‘Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks’s Nick Gowitzka is Game for New Season, Too
Fishing alongside Dave this season is returning Captain Nick Gowitzka, an OBX native. His sharp Little Shell vessel is an aptly named smaller boat that turns circles around others in the tuna game.
“I have a lot of nieces and nephews. When they me on TV, their Uncle Nick is their hero, so it’s pretty cool,” he tells Nat Geo for a recent “5 Questions” interview for the 2021 season.
“I haven’t been doing this long,” the Wicked Tuna newcomer admits. “I’ve been running a boat for a couple of years.”
Originally, however, the good captain says he “worked at a pretty big farm for four years in high school… Nick the farmer, that’s right,” he laughs. “I had a farmer’s tan and everything.”
For this latest season, however, Nick is making a name for himself fast. But it’s not about the fame. It’s about “being out there with my guys and fishing.”
“What I’m looking forward to the most is just being out there with my guys and fishing,” Nick continues. “I mean, it’s still a job, but some people save their whole lives to retire and then do what we do for work, ” he smiles wide. “I mean what more could you want out of life?”
What more, indeed. Spoken like a true Outsider.
Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks airs on National Geographic Sunday nights at 8 PM Eastern / 7 Central.
