At a young age, Tyler already wanted to become a commercial fisherman. He joined his father on the ship called The Pacifier on fishing trips. After matriculating from Gloucester High School, he intended to pursue a career in fishing but his family insisted that he study college first. After completing his studies, his father would co-sign a lease for a boat. He would develop his skills in fishing quickly and become one of the youngest captains to fish Bluefin tuna. He would become the captain of the vessel named Pin Wheel and is joined by his crew who are former school mates. His success would eventually gain him the attention of the producers of “Wicked Tuna”, who would invite him to become a part of their show. Prior to joining the show, his net worth was already increasing thanks to his success in fishing.

“Wicked Tuna” started airing in 2012, and is one of National Geographic Channel’s most successful shows, airing for six seasons to date. The show looks into one of America’s oldest industries, tuna fishing. In the show, groups of tuna fishermen based in Gloucester, Massachusetts battle each other to see who can catch the most fish. They fish the high valued Atlantic Bluefin tuna which are often found in the North Atlantic Ocean. The show sheds some light on several issues in the industry such as the danger on tuna and how the US has regulated fishing of the Bluefin to prevent its population from going down to dangerous numbers. McLaughlin would join the show during its second season and would become that season’s winner, gaining $100,861 worth of haul.

Since then they would continue to become a part of the show, and his net worth has also increased significantly.

“Wicked Tuna” has also created a spin-off show entitled “Wicked Tuna: North vs. South” which features some of the crew of the original show fishing in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. The show was eventually renamed to “Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks” and has been running for three seasons to the present. In 2015, Tyler was awarded the American Red Cross First Responder Award for a rescue he did the previous year.

For his personal life, it is known that McLaughlin is in a relationship with Savannah Tapley. He’s very active on social media, particularly on Twitter and Facebook. During his free time, he enjoys playing tennis.
