Donna Monte from "Wicked Tuna" is featured in the National Geographic Channel reality docu-series. She is a deckhand on the Bounty Hunter fishing vessel.

Donna Monte, who worked for nearly four decades in customer service for an adhesive manufacturer, was introduced to fishing by her then future husband, Captain Bill Monte. "About six months into our relationship, he showed up at my parents' house, with a boat on a trailer on the back of his truck," she recalls. "I said, 'What's that?' He said, 'It's a boat. We're going to go fishing!'" Pretty soon, she and Bill were venturing farther offshore, in search of giant fish.

The first time they encountered one in the wild, it was even more revelatory. Donnay says, "You can have someone explain to you what catching a bluefin is like, but until you actually experience it, it's just beyond what you can humanly imagine." What appeals to Donna is "the challenge of being able to actually get one on a line and then battle from there. It's like nothing I've ever done. I've been to Hawaii and caught Pacific blue marlin; I've caught thousands of different species. Nothing compares to the power; it's absolutely frightening. And they fight really hard. They don't just jump onto the deck. You can have one under your boat for an hour, trying to beat you."
