Growing up, Dave started fishing with his family, joining his father on fishing trips and catching his first fish when he was seven years old. His parents supported his interest in fishing, and at 13 years old he would catch his first tuna. He attended Middletown North High School, and after matriculating, would then attend Sheilds Aviation Academy to try his hand at becoming a pilot. After completing his studies, he started working on party boats, but he did not enjoy that kind of work. He obtained his license for tuna fishing, and would then pursue a career involving it. He would improve his fishing business to supplying fish to local restaurants, which started to increase his net worth. With the money he earned, he upgraded to a charter business, and would even be featured in a 1998 episode of “Fox and Friends”, mainly using the ship FV-tuna.com for tuna fishing.
Eventually, Carraro would be invited by the producers of “Wicked Tuna” to join their show. The series follows various commercial tuna fishermen who look for the high-valued Atlantic Bluefin tuna, which is often found in the North Atlantic Ocean – they battle it out each season to see who catches the most fish. The show has become one of National Geographic’s most popular shows, and has increased Dave’s net worth significantly. The show also sheds some light on US regulations on tuna fishing, as the Bluefin tuna numbers have declined significantly over the years. The show also shows information on the history of tuna fishing which is one of America’s oldest industries. Carraro has been a part of the show since its first season, and is its most consistent top performer, having won four seasons as the top earner despite fierce competition. Interestingly, he and his crew only focus on fishing for tunas using a harpoon. According to interview, one of his best years was when he caught 52 Bluefin tunas each weighing 800 to 1000 pounds. Despite fishing them, he is also an advocate for preserving the bluefin tuna population.
For his personal life, it is known that Dave is in a relationship with Jess Boardway, who has also been featured in his show. Interestingly, he doesn’t enjoy eating fish and sea food in general. When he is not fishing, he flies ‘planes, and even does commercial pilot work. He is also involved in charity work, mainly focusing on kids in need, and sick children.
