Tyler McLaughlin is one of the captains from “Wicked Tuna” reality TV series going on Discovery Channel.
He was born in Rye Harbor in England and at the age of two he was going on fishing trips with his father because it was the only thing to keep him quiet, as his mother says.
Tyler caught his first bluefin when he was only seven years old and after that he got hooked and always went fishing whenever his dad went. Afterwards he began going alone. He used to practice and invent new tehniques. He later managed to find a crew for fishing, and that’s who he fishes with today.
After he finished high school he wanted to become a commercial fisherman. His family didn’t approve because they wanted him to finish college. He made a deal with them- he will finish college and his father will help him to buy a boat. Tyler decided he was going to prove them he can do it, so he finished collage and his father actually did buy him a boat.
Tyler McLaughlin is the youngest captain in the fleet. He is the captain of Pinwheel and he has two of his school mates as his crew: Adam Moser and Alex Whitney. He used to have a bigger crew but he narrowed it down to his favorite people, people he liked to spend quality time with.
He has an online merchandise shop called Pin Wheel Geat with clothes and accessories, so it is not surprising everyone say that he is one of the most competent and intelligent fishermen out there. Making money in the fish industry not only by fishing, but also by selling, was the best thing he decided to do.
Tyler currently spends a lot of his time on the boat but it is not really known that he is already married. His wife doesn’t like having a public life so she can not be often seen with him. Sometimes she follows him to boat shows or they go solo on a fishing trip.
