‘Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks’ Crew Member Almost Washed Overboard In New Clip
The upcoming Season 4 of the locally filmed National Geographic Channel (NatGeo) reality competition series Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks begins tonight (July 30), and following the final trailer, an intense first clip has also been released online, in which a crew member on the Hot Tuna is almost washed overboard by a massive rogue wave.
In the clip, which you can watch below, Hot Tuna first mate Jeff Przybeszewski becomes completely submerged when he is surprised by a 15-foot wave that crashes over the boat.
The local captains featured on the show were on hand for a fun Q&A session at the local Season 4 Premiere Party last weekend, which you can watch here.

Filmed on the Outer Banks, North Carolina, the breakout TV show spin off of the original Wicked Tuna that follows the exciting work of hardcore tuna fishermen on the Outer Banks, production of the new season began in January, once again shot mostly aboard the boats of the local and visiting captains from Gloucester until the region’s bluefin quota is met.
Locally based charter boat Fishin’ Frenzy, led by Captain Greg Mayer, has won the competition each of the first three seasons of the show.
In the new season, Mayer is back once again with the Fishin’ Frenzy, along with Captain Britton Shackelford of the Doghouse, and Captain Charlie Griffin of the Reels of Fortune, but now they are joined former Fishin’ Frenzy first mate Nick Gowitzka, who is now the captain of the Little Shell.
Back down from Gloucester, Captain Tyler McLaughlin of the Pinwheel and Captain T.J. Ott of the Hot Tuna are joined by returning Virginia-based Captain Dale Lisi of the Foolish Pleasures.
Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks Season 4 will premiere this Sunday, July 30 at 10pm on NatGeo.
