I guess not. Cool series. The big blow (for the last 4 days) kept me off the water again today and I finished my to do list, so I chilled and watched the tube.

I found the show rather dissapointing, didnt like the Captains(characters) and it was rather boring.

I'm trying to understand the deal with Tuna.com -- the boat has that name, but yet the site is owned by BumbleBee -- can anyone explain that?

I am surprised you never saw them land one. Usually at least 1 boat brings one in per show, with some in the 1,000 pound range.

Be a lot more interesting if they were fishing in water with any depth to it.

I would be interesting for us but not profitable for them.

I agree, have watched a couple episodes but just not interesting at all to watch to me

Got tired of all the whining about "i can't pay my fuel bill", Gonna loose everything we got if I don't catch ONE fish", etc.

Damn if you struggling that hard in business GO GET A DAMN JOB

I would believe that he's getting $$ from BumbleBee for advertising. How many people do you think have gone to that website since the show has been on?
BTW, the boat used to be named "LADY MAUREEN".

I DVR'd every episode this yr and usually watch the next day. Not the best fishing show I've seen but I enjoyed the season. I flipped back and forth and watched the show during golf tourny commercials, then I watched the last episode at 10pm. I understand it's like any other reality show (made for TV drama) and I just don't pay that much attention to it.

That was pretty cool last nite with Ralph catching that fish solo. Truth be told the cameraman probably helped, but I don't care. I thought it was entertaining and that's why I watch TV.

I like .com's arrogant attitude as well.

The mate Paul definitely has a screw loose. Not dealing with a full deck, bordering on idiot savant IMHO.

The cameraman may have helped but it wasnt because Ralph can't do it by himself. He has fishied for years by himself.

Back in the 90's when fishing was good and it was one fish per vessel per day he would stay out there for a week at a time. If he got one he would leave his ball, shoot in and sell it and go right back out there. He is a madman.

What does BumbleBee get out of a few extra hits?

Are they selling swag on their site? I can't imagine someone buys BumbleBee over any other brand at Publix because there's a boat on TV with their website painted on the back.
