Reed Meredith 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 Wahoo.

It didn't take very long before Reed Meredith knew that he wanted to be a fisherman. Born and raised on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Reed dropped out of school to follow in his fathers footsteps and join his dad on the first fishing vessel Wahoo full time. 24 years later, Reed, now a father and family man himself,

is the captain of the third incarnation of the fishing vessel Wahoo. The responsibility is now on Reed's shoulders to pilot his boat through the most treacherous inlet on the Eastern seaboard in order to preserve his and his family's way of life.

Despite the fishing lifestyle keeping him away from his wife and two daughters more than he'd like, Reed has managed to keep at least some of his family close to him at all times. The first and only mate on the Wahoo is Reed's older brother Banks Meredith. After Banks attended college, Banks decided to join his younger brother in his fishing endeavors and become a partner in the family business.

Although sibling rivalry can occasionally rear its ugly head between the two, earning them their nickname "The Bickering Brothers," there is never a question of who drives the boat in the family. Reed is the captain, gives the orders, and is responsible for all who step foot on the Wahoo — and he makes sure this is understood by all, especially by his older brother.

Being responsible for putting the boat on the fish and the fish on the deck is a challenge that Reed relishes. When it comes to fishing, the Wahoo is one of the top boats of the fleet due to her hard-charging and extremely competitive captain. Reed prides himself in his willingness to attempt crossing the Oregon Inlet in weather that keeps lesser boats safe and sound, tied in their slip.
