How is the situation in the south and what happens after new fishermen go there?
Some of the fishermen like Captain Dave Marciano and Captain TJ Ott had a disappointing experience in the north of Atlanta fishing bluefin. As a result, they decided to move south to see if they can make up for their losses. They are so desparate and even take more individuals to help them with their new venture. But they are not welcome there. As these ships and boats arrive there, they are met by gunshots from the southerners saying that you do not belong here.
