Best known as a fisherman, Captain Dave Marciano was born on 5 December 1965 in Ipswich. However, he grew up in Beverly MA.
From a young age, Dave had an interest in fishing and was the first person to show the interest among his family members. But his first fishing experience did not go well as he got hooked with the fish through his ankle and got rushed to the hospital.
Despite the bitter memory, Dave regularly went fishing after he moved to Beverly with his parents. While attending Gloucester High School, Dave made his first boat and named it Yankee Fleet.
Later, he also worked at the fleet and gained new experiences. Dave’s hard work finally reached its destination as he received the captain license and bought a boat for himself.
Wicked Tuna, Salary
After working for years as a professional captain and a fisherman like Keith Colburn, Dave initiated his television career as a reality star for the show Wicked Tuna in 2012.
Along with him, Mike Rowe, Dave Carraro, and Sandro Maniaci star in the show. As of now, Dave owns the FV Hard Merchandise, which is timely featured in his show Wicked Tuna.
Dave’s performance in the show helped him to get massive recognition in the media. Not only fame, but the 53-year old has also amassed a hefty sum of net worth. Though Dave’s net worth is yet to be revealed, as per his bio, he makes an average salary of $60K.
However, his journey in the show has not always been jolly as police arrested him in 2015. He had pulled a woman’s hair and tried to get playful with her.
