Default Wicked Tuna Outer Banks

I'm surprised there wasn't a thread started for the first episode.

The Reel Action and Hard Merchandise both suffered damage when they hit the concrete pilings while trying to get through the Oregon Inlet. HM looked to be stuck hard on the bridge. Must have been some severe current or surge.

I was out there a couple of months ago. I would be afraid to take my CC out there. The channel had moved pretty far from where it was and its location is deceptive.

Yeah that inlet is tricky and there can be some real current through there and it changes all the time. they need to follow the fleet out in the am!

Not going to happen. The CG would be constantly moving cans and lights.

I can't handle the cliff hanger editing these shows are subjected to. Fingernails on a chalk board.......

When they are reeling in a fish, why do they grab the line in front if the reel and pull the line towards the reel? Why not just crank the reel?

A gloved hand has more pulling power than a reel.

I suppose I could Google it and skip all the "let me Google that for you" answers, but does anyone know how it came to be called the Oregon Inlet? Pretty far from OR.

Cause when you push your barge of ore through there it's likely your Ore[is]gon[e]

it's actually a boring story - just looked it up on wikipedia. a hurricane opened the breach in 1846. a ship named the Oregon road out the storm in Pamlico sound and then went into port to tell everyone about the breach in the barrier island and it's been called that ever since (according to the interwebz)

If you have ever seen the bridge from under it you would never drive across it

Hi Dave, I really enjoy watching the show. I cringed when I saw the two boats hit the pier. Watching the accidents for the first time I thought your boat was stuck hard on the concrete. (which is why I started this thread)

I was happy to hear that the damage to both boats was not so bad that they needed to be hauled and really glad that no one was injured.

Over here in sunny Ca, we have had a Bluefin bite going on for several months. The largest fish caught on rod and reel has been around 180 and a spear fisherman speared one that was close to 190 lbs.

These are not close in size to the fish you guys catch but for us Ca fishermen they are fish of a lifetime. The best part is they have been as close as 2 miles off the coast in Dana Point, Ca.

For the most part they have been really hard to hook. The fish here are notorious for being line and hook shy.

Keep up the good work. Most of us dream of catching one of those fish you guys get on an annual basis.

If you can navigate the Annisquam River there's no excuse Dave!

The NC footage is so much better than the Northern footage. Those stikes on the greenstick are phenomenal. Last week's footage of all those gannets dive bombing the bait was blue planet material. They get great surface shots of feeding BFT and actaully reecord the strikes occasionally.

Dave, sorry to see you bang up the boat, looking foward to you guys getting back at it.
