"Wicked Tuna" (Sun., 10 p.m. ET on National Geographic) wrapped its first season with a whopper. More specifically, the crew managed to capture a tuna that tipped the scales at 1,030 pounds. That was easily one of the most impressive fish the crew caught, as evidenced by their excitement upon seeing it rise out of the water.
"That’s what it’s all about," one crew member said. "That’s why I ... love tuna fishing."
Should the show come back for a second season, they'll have to try and outdo that 1,000+ pound tuna. Could they maybe topple that world record 1,496-pound bluefin tuna fish caught in 1979, according to BigMarineFish.com? Time will tell.
