Reel ‘E Bugging Bugs Out in ‘Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks’ Exclusive Clip

Posted By on August 21, 2020

On this Sunday’s episode of the locally filmed National Geographic Channel (NatGeo) reality competition series Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks, one boat continues facing hurdles and just can’t seem to shake their misfortune, and we have an exclusive clip of last year’s champion Reel ‘E Bugging really bugging out.

In this clip from this Sunday’s episode, entitled “Hard Times at Sea”, Reel ‘E Bugging faces an unexpected hurdle when their lifeboat suddenly deploys from the back of the boat, causing the vessel to have to turn back and haul the massive raft back into the boat. As Captain Bobby Earl looks around for a tool to aid in bringing the raft and its ropes in, he asks for a gaff from one of his crew members. As the gaff is passed through the crew, Captain Earl accidentally pulls the gaff too rough, puncturing the hand of mate Drew Cooper. As Drew gets some first aid to stop the bleeding, Captain Earl can’t help but feel frustrated at his string of bad luck.

Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks airs on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. on Nat Geo.
