Fishing can be tricky and fishing for the elusive Atlantic bluefin tuna is definitely not child's play. The latest episode of 'Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks', saw the weather getting rather unfavorable for fishing. Despite the rough tides and choppy waters, the seasoned fishermen weren't willing to call it a day. They continued their attempts to get hold of at least one fish.

The teams were aware of how much money they were wasting by continuing to fish in the adverse conditions. All of them could be seen venting in their green room interviews about how much money they were spending on gas, bait, crew, etc. Despite all these factors, they carried on with their attempts at catching at least one elusive tuna. 

When it came to catching the tuna, Little Shell's fishermen had the most luck. They caught four tunas in the adverse conditions. Little Tuna managed to bag a whopping $21, 716 for their valiant efforts. Despite catching four tunas, Little Shell couldn't overtake Rasta Rocket. The Rasta Rocket crew had a sort of slow start this season, but they seemed to be quickly making up for the lost time.

The Rasta crew worked tirelessly in their attempts to catch tunas. After several attempts, the crew managed to bag three giant tunas. Luckily for them, every fish they caught was of exceptionally good quality. The fish had perfect amount of fat to it and the coloring on the fish left the buyers impressed. Although they caught one fish less than Little Shell, Rasta Rocket still managed to rake in $22,140. 

The crew comprising of: Zack Shackleton, Daniel Blanks, Shane Britt, Stanton McDuffie, and Derek Savage, were giddy with joy over their earnings. They were glad that at least their boat's expenses would be covered with the earnings and they wouldn't be running in loss. The Rasta crew made it very clear that despite having a small boat, they were definitely a strong competition for many of the other fishermen on the show. 'Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks' follows seasoned fishermen and their crew as they attempt to catch the prized bluefin tuna on the Atlantic coast.
