Greg Mayer from "Wicked Tuna: North vs. South" is one of the fishing captains featured in the National Geographic Channel reality docu-series. He is the captain of the Fishin' Frenzy.

It's been nearly 25 years since Captain Greg Mayer migrated south to North Carolina from New Jersey, and he's still trying to shake off the Yankee stigma that's followed him ever since.

Born and bred in the Garden State, Greg began working professionally on fishing vessels at the young age of 14. Infatuated with the study of marine life, Greg graduated with a degree in Biology from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, and quickly returned to fishing, working for several boats before eventually earning his captains license at the age of 31.

Since then, he has skippered vessels from Maine to the Bahamas, fishing for everything from marlin to fluke to tuna. In 1991, Greg set up permanent residence in the Outer Banks.

In 2002, Greg bought the Fishin' Frenzy vessel a striking 53-foot red boat and quickly earned a reputation as one of the top bluefin captains in the region. Over the past few years, Frenzy has repeatedly hauled in more bluefin than any other boat in the fleet making his the boat to beat.

Greg's biggest rival is Reed Meredith, captain of fellow local boat Wahoo. Greg only just narrowly outfished Reed last season and Reed is determined to be the top-earning tuna captain this season.
