Tuna fishing is a high-paced, dangerous job, with more than its fair share of famine between the feasts, and some fisherman might not have what it takes to see it through.
In this exclusive clip from the upcoming episode of National Geographic's Wicked Tuna, Bruce Hebert, first mate of the Miss Sambvca, gets into a heated fight with the vessel's captain Paul Hebert, his younger brother.
After a bout of screaming and swearing, Bruce demands that they haul up the anchor and take him home, because he's sick of being under-appreciated and underpaid. Now, with his brother and first mate gone, Paul is left struggling to figure out what to do next.
The world of tuna fishing can be a challenging one. The paydays can be massive, with a good sized Bluefin being worth nearly $20,000, but some days those fish just aren't biting. When those days stack up, bills go unpaid and tensions elevate quickly.
This dramatic episode of Wicked Tuna airs Sunday, April 27 at 9 p.m. on the National Geographic Channel.
