Posted By on July 24, 2017

The upcoming Season 4 of the locally filmed National Geographic Channel (NatGeo) reality competition series Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks begins in one week, and the local captains featured on the show were on hand for a fun Q&A session at the local Season 4 Premiere Party last night.

An annual fundraiser for North Carolina Watermen United, the event took place on Sunday, July 23, at Pirate’s Cove Marina in Manteo, including screenings of last year’s Season Finale episode and this year’s Season Premiere episode, which will air on the NatGeo network next Sunday, July 30.

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 on Sunday, July 30 at 10pm on NatGeo.

  1. glad to see a Q & A with the OBX crew but the audio was terrible.Next time please record the sound into a mixer and then reloop audio/video so you can understand what is being asked and their response.

    • We weren’t in charge of any of that. The sound quality was terrible for us sitting right in front of the panel and it was no better for those in the audience sitting in the back of the room. We could not understand most of the audio during the Q&A or the episode screening itself. But we presented it here as it happened. Please address your concerns to the premiere event organizers (NC Watermen United), so hopefully they can do better next year. Thanks for watching anyway!

  2. My Husband is an aavid watcher of Wicked Tuna. I love the show myself. He would give anything to go out on a tuna boat! I’m sure you get plenty of e-mails of people that want to be on the show, but my Husband would be so thrilled. He loves to fish, and would eat, sleep, and drink fishing if he could. Its his life desire to go out on a boat with professionals such as yourself. Do you ever allow anyone to join you on the boat. Thanks so much for listening….Paula ([email protected])
