The PointClickFish.com Team welcomesSandro Maniaci, from F/V Tuna.com on National Geographic Channel’s hit series Wicked Tuna. He will be LIVE on the PointClickFish.com Saltwater Radio Show Thursday April 18th @ 8 PM.

Sandro Maniaci grew up in Gloucester and has a father and an uncle who both worked in the fishing industry, so it’s not a surprise that he started fishing pretty much as soon as he could walk.  By grade school, he was catching sunfish in a local pond, and by adolescence, his mother was taking him to the docks and watching dutifully as he cast lines for striped bass.  About six years ago, he got an opportunity to fulfill his dream as a crew member on a tuna boat.

Maniaci says that those who haven’t fished for bluefin probably don’t appreciate the daunting difficulty of catching them.  “These are tough fish,” he says.  “The big ones that we want somehow have managed to avoid being caught all these years, so they obviously aren’t easy to haul in.  You can have days when you’ve got 25 or 30 of them under the boat, and none of them will bite.”  While an ordinary sport fisherman may have the good fortune to get a big bluefin, Maniaci says that what separates the civilians from the professionals is consistency.  “The average guy might be able to go out and get lucky, like hitting a scratch ticket,” he says.  “But to catch them consistently, that takes a special set of skills.”

Wicked Tuna airs Sundays at 9 PM ET on the National Geographic Channel.
