Dave Marciano is best known as a cast member with the hit reality TV Show Wicked Tuna on the National Geographic Channel. For much longer than that, he was known as Captain of the fishing vessel Hard Merchandise.

Despite his celebrity status, Dave is still very much a working man who makes his living off of the ocean. He is also a father who invests into the upbringing of his children.

Dave came onto American Made Boating to discuss his life, his time on the show, and fishing. This was an excellent episode, and you’ll be sure to see a side of Dave you haven’t seen before.
