Rasta Rocket has Double Trouble in ‘Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks’ Exclusive Clip
The locally filmed National Geographic Channel (NatGeo) reality competition series Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks is currently nearing the end of its seventh season, and we are excited to premiere an exclusive new clip from this weekend’s episode.
In this clip from this Sunday’s episode, entitled “Together We Stand,” the Rasta Rocket begins marking what looks like a school of tuna, and prays to the tuna gods for a bite. Almost immediately, their prayers are answered by not one, but two bites. Captain Zach Shackleton begins directing his crew around each other to make sure the two lines don’t cross and no one loses a fish. As the first fish approaches the boat, the crew is disappointed to realize that their “massive tuna” is in fact a hammerhead shark, and turn to focus all their efforts on the remaining line.

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.
Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks airs on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. on the National Geographic channel.
