20. Wicked Tuna – NatGeo – 9 a.m. Saturday to 12 a.m. Sunday

Everyone has to find their hustle, aka the thing that’ll bring them the big bucks in life. And this salty crew from Gloucester, Massachusetts does so by reeling in bluefin tuna week after week. Tune in (haha, get it?) to National Geographic Channel at 9:00 a.m. Saturday until 12:00 a.m. Sunday, to catch some Wicked Tuna for yourself.

Several different vessels go out as the audience watches crew members battle choppy North Atlantic waters, rain, and each other in order to grab the biggest fish possible. Tuna fishing is actually quite the lucrative business. Some of the fish these guys catch can really reel in the big bucks. Depending on the weight and color of the meat, a single fish can bring in a $10,000 haul or more. And these guys have to lay out each line individually, hoping for the biggest score possible.

The best time for these guys to head out for their catch of the week is usually between July and October. The United States allows this type of fishing, so you can rest easy that these guys are just trying to make a living like the rest of us. You can check the FAQ on the NatGeo site for more information.
