She already knows how to handle a boat and together with her brother, were able to catch a Bluefin tuna that weighed over 800 pounds. She earned her captain’s license that allows her to be Tyler’s right-hand woman on the decks of the ‘Pinwheel’.

In 2018, Tyler faced a difficult challenge that really pushed him to the edge. He lost his good friend Nicholas ‘Duffy’ Fudge who was suffering from ‘the bends’ that mainly affects deep-sea and scuba divers.

The condition is also commonly referred to as decompression sickness. According to the University of Michigan Health, decompression sickness is a result of increasing pressure when a diver comes to the surface of the water too quickly.

Since the passing of Fudge, he still continues to make big catches which he dedicates to Fudge and uses it to honour his legacy. Fudge appeared frequently on Wicked Tuna and the show’s spin-off show, Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks.
