‘Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks’ Season 8 premieres Sunday

Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks Season 8 premieres Sunday, July 18 at 7:30 p.m. on the National Geographic channel. “promises to be the most dangerous and thrilling season of Wicked Tuna yet,” stated a news release from High 10 Media.

“For the first time in show history the entire fleet is made up of Southern boats,” stated the release. “Fan-favorites Captain Greg Mayer of the Fishing Frenzy and Nick Gowitzka of the Little Shell are ready to make their mark without facing any competition from the North, while underdog Captain Zack Shackleton of the Rasta Rocket sets out to prove that though his boat is the smallest, it’s the mightiest.”

Captain Bobby Earl is back with an all-new Reel E’ Bugging after a devastating fire over the winter decimated his previous vessel, initially making a return this season questionable. The revivals of Captain Adam Price of the Offshore Outlaw and Captain Britton Shackelford of the Doghouse after both captains took a brief hiatus are sure to up the ante. Rounding out the fleet is newcomer Captain Jimmie Horning of the Hog Wild who, at just 22 years old, is the youngest captain in the group. “But don’t be fooled by his age – Horning has been captaining his own vessel for more than five years and isn’t one to be scared off by a few veteran fishermen,” stated the release.
