Scott Ferriero from "Wicked Tuna" is featured in the National Geographic Channel reality docu-series. He is the first mate of the Bounty Hunter fishing vessel.

"I've fished for my whole life, practically, on and off," says Scott Ferriero. After surviving the wreck of another fishing boat in the mid-1980s, he was invited by Bill Monte and Donna Monte to go fishing. It was on that trip that Scott saw and helped catch his first bluefin.

to describe it," he recalls. "The whole experience was pure chaos and adrenaline, like I'd never felt before." Since then, he's become a veteran bluefin fisherman.

The hardest part of the job, Scott says, is the waiting. "Once you catch a bluefin, you're like a junkie craving the next fix," he explains. "But you've got to wait for the fish to bite, and wait for the fight." Scott also enjoys the hard but satisfying work of getting ready to fish, and the experience of getting an up-close, extended immersion into the ocean environment that few people get the chance to really see. "You'll be out on the water, and all of a sudden, you'll be surrounded by 50 whales," he says. "And you're the only ones out there to see it. It's totally amazing."
