What annoys me more than the show is how people talk about it like its real life.
This is a staged, scripted, and highly edited drama. It is not real life.
Sure, those crews are professional fisherman, they do catch bft as a part of their livelihood (although all do other things in when the giants don't run), they do sell fish, and they do reel them in. They even sound like idiots on more than one occasion just like we do.
BUT, they don't do what you see on the show. Who here thinks it would take an hour to bring in even even a large blue shark on a 130 including burning through a deck hand and passing it off?
And Richie rich is straight out of central casting. Bad boy tuna.com wasn't quite annoying enough last season so they did a casting call and upped the ante.
About the only true thing from last nights episode was the demonstration that once again, leaving a bunk with blankets and pillows (even third grade motif) in plain site is bad for fishing.
