National Geographic's 'Wicked Tuna: North vs. South' Premieres Sun. Aug. 17th

A spinoff of the highly popular “Wicked Tuna” series, Wicked Tuna: North vs. South pits Gloucester, Massachusetts’ finest fishermen against a new group of captains from North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
Wicked Tuna: North vs. South premieres on Sunday, August 17 at 10/9c on the National Geographic Channel. Here's a sneak peek video that shows what to expect from the show its first season.
It's bluefin tuna season in the Outer Banks and the local fleet is not happy when Gloucester's top fishermen sweep in for their share of the quota. The northern captains must conquer new styles of fishing, treacherous waters and the wrath of southern captain's to try and reel in some "monstah" fish. When every captain's got mouths to feed, the only lines that won't cross are the ones they put in the water.

After a disappointing bluefin tuna season in Massachusetts, the northern captains attempt to salvage their finances by casting their lines along the coast of North Carolina, where the season is just kicking off. The northern Wicked Tuna captains have to conquer new styles of fishing and face off against some very protective local Outer Banks captains, whose families have fished the area for generations and know the treacherous waters well. It’s the same free-for-all competition to reel in tuna and rake in dough as both the northern and southern boat crews will do anything to get their share of the elusive bluefin tuna.
