He placed first from 1993-95, won for tagging the most sharks six times and has received more than $500,000 in prize money, in addition to more tag and release awards.

· Captain Paul Hiller of the Crack Oar - Paul has been fishing offshore for more than 30 years. On land, Paul owns the Hiller Sports hunting and fishing retail store and gun range.

· Captain and Owner Anthony "Chaos" Giorgio of the Omertá - Anthony has fished the Star Island Yacht Club Shark Tournament six consecutive years, and calls the Star Island Marina home base when heading off shore.

· Captain David O'Halloran of La Bella Donna - David's La Bella Donna is a multi-million dollar, high-tech fishing boat. On land, David runs Pinegrove Ranch and Family Resort in Kerhonkson, N.Y.

In episodes three and four, the captains look to win the 43rd Annual Montauk Marine Basin Shark Tournament, Montauk, N.Y., (June 28-29). In episodes five and six, Captain Anthony "Chaos" Giorgio of the Omertá faces a mechanical breakdown as he looks to get to Oak Bluffs in time for the 27th Annual Monster Shark Tournament, Martha's Vineyard, Mass.
