Wicked Tuna Captain Works For B6

Mon Jan 21, 2013 2:37 am

Not sure if anyone watches the tv fishing show called Wicked Tuna but it seems that one of the fishing captains is also a pilot for Jetblue. Captain Dave CararronTuna.com, anyone know anything?

Just started watching that show, he seems like he could be an airline Captain, calm and cool mostly. I just looked him up on the FAA website and he is indeed an ATP with a type in the ERJ-190. There is also a newspaper article from a couple days ago that mentions he flies for them.

Very cool article. If you watch the show you know he is a very cocky guy so that does fit perfectly into his Captain persona. Guy does work hard though if he flies 10 days a month and then busts his ass on the water the other days.

Yeah, I could almost do the same thing with my flying schedule, I'd love to do fishing charters. I would imagine he is BOS based on the ERJ, pretty sweet gig that he can swing both.

Very interesting indeed. I've watched the first season and noticed he wasn't as stressed out as the other Captains about money, so it seemed to me he had some sort of 2nd gig to keep the funds flowing.
