Dave Carraro is an American star of National Geographic Channel’s documentary series called ‘Wicked Tuna’ and one of the best tuna catchers in the world.
His estimated net worth is astonishing $6 million.
As a child he was fishing with his father and family a lot, so he caught his first fish when he was only a seven year old boy.
Having parents who shared an interest in this area motivated Dave to start wondering is fishing his call.
He caught his first tuna in his teens, when he was about 13 years old, back in New Jersey.
When he was only twenty years old he got his license for tuna fishing, so he obviously has some talent.
His first job was on party boats and after realizing that it’s not making him halppy he devoted himself to fishing. He turned it into a business after he started providing fish for a local restaurant, which helped him financially.
Today he upgraded his business into a charter business.
His first TV appearance was in 1998 in ‘Fox and friends’ but his real success came in 2012 when he and his crew sent their home video to NatGeo Channel and applying for roles in ‘Wicked Tuna’.
Today, Dave is an owner of his own website F/V-tuna.com which is also financed by the National Geographic.
He has his own business company for catching and selling fish.
The series is about searching and catching bluefin tunas all across American East Coast, Mexico and Bahamas.
Not to be mistaking, Dave and his crew are fishing for tunas only with a rod and a reel so it is quite an acomplishment. Catching tuna with a harpoon is very demanding.
In 2011 he had his best year: he and his crew caught 52 bluefin tunas. It was a very difficult job since they did it only with a rod and reel and every tuna weighs from 800 to 1000 pounds! Dave claims his best years are yet to come, although these are hard to beat.
Although he fishes tuna, he is very dedicated to preserving bluefin tunas since their number has fallen down four times since 1950.
Dave was single for a very long time, mostly because his girlfriends coludn’t handle him going to sea for weeks while they stayed at home.
Today he is in a happy relationship with Jess Boardway and they are soon to be married.
They live together in Tinton Falls in New Jersey.
