Greg Chorebanian from "Wicked Tuna" is featured in the National Geographic Channel reality docu-series. He is a deckhand on the Bounty Hunter fishing vessel.

At first glance, Greg Chorebanian may not seem like a typical member of the Gloucester fleet — he doesn't drink, smoke or curse, but without a doubt he is one of the area's premier fishermen. He has more than 30 years experience and is licensed to run 100-ton vessels from the Canadian border all the way down to Florida.

Greg caught his first bluefin tuna in 1979. He says, "It was the biggest fish I've ever caught, a 1,060-pound monstah." He goes on to explain how fishing was much different back then: "Instead of using a rod and reel to land the fish, we used up to 600 feet of line and our bare hands. It was much more dangerous, much easier to lose a finger, or worse — get caught up in the line and be pulled under."

Greg got his start in contract manufacturing, where the company he owned made specialty parts used in the construction of the Louvre, aerospace engineering and hip replacement pieces. But his heart wasn't in it. "My whole career, all I wanted to do was be a commercial fisherman, and I was fortunate enough to sell my business and have the finances to make my dream come true." Now retired, he spends about 200 days a year on the water. In the summers, he's in New England fishing for bluefin; and in the winters, he heads to the Florida Keys for swordfish, sailfish and blackfin tuna.

Greg has been married for more than forty years and spends his free time teaching his four grandchildren to fish.
