Being the youngest to something is not necessarily a good thing. But in the case of Tyler Mclaughlin, it is because of the nature of his work. He is the youngest captain on the National Geographic show Wicked Tuna. The show is amongst the channels biggest shows and it would not be possible without people like Tyler.
The 31-year-old may be the youngest of the bunch but he certainly is no slouch. As he is known for being a wonderful fisherman. He happens to be the owner of one of the show’s most iconic ships, the “Pin Wheel”. It is a 35 feet single engine fishing vessel. Tyler has been in charge of the ship since the year 2011.
His fishing days started way earlier than his days on the Pin Wheel as he has been fishing ever since his childhood. He started fishing since he was 11 and has not stopped ever since. His passion for fishing is what drives him to the seas looking for his next pray.
He is certainly a force to be reckoned with on the show as he might be the youngest but even experienced veterans will have a hard time fishing against him. His father used to take him on fishing trips ever since the age of two. I think we now know where his passion for fishing comes from. By the time he was three, he was catching tuna all by himself.
In the very first season of the show “Wicked Tuna”, he caught $100,861 worth of tuna. He also happens to be the person who has caught the biggest tuna on the show. He has a picture of him with the fish which weighed a whopping 1,211 pounds. Very impressive for a 12-year-old.
