I’m not sure people around here outside of the restaurateurs and shop owners realize the impact that these guys have had on local business.
These hard working fishermen and real life men of character have captured the hearts of America from their legions of fans who watch Wicked Tuna.
I can’t begin to tell you how many people I run into from all over the country that come in and ask where they can see The Hard Merchandise or Tuna.com. They love the show and they come to Gloucester to stay for vacation, eat at our restaurants and shop in our shops. But it doesn’t end there. They stay at our hotels, they book charters and when their charters are filled up they pass off those charters on to other local charter boat Captains.
I hear it over and over and over again and these people are coming from all over the country.
So when you see these guys around town, give ‘em a pat on the back and say thanks for representing our City and making us proud.
