New Berlin, Wis. --(Ammoland.com)- Ten teams of four battle 15-foot swells, dangerous weather, broken equipment, lost lines and more as they head out in the night to hunt the top of the ocean food chain: the mako shark.

Shark Commander is a behind-the-scenes look at the characters and the ups and downs of what these shark hunters endure, the series begins airing nightly for two weeks on Sportsman Channel on Monday, January 13 at 7 p.m. ET.

Gurney Productions, who also produce “Duck Dynasty,” have brought together the “best of the best” of mako shark hunters. With the west coast hunters issuing a challenge readily accepted by the east coasters, $1 million prize money on the line, plus a custom 23-foot Pro-Line Super Sport boat, it’s a battle of teamwork…or failure.

The 10 teams, five from each coast, are ultimately vying for the all-tackle world record, not to mention bragging rights. Teammates that work together and function as a team – especially in the heat of battle – are by far the single most important element to successful mako shark fishing. Each team consists of a rod man, the one who reels the shark in; a gaff man, the one who ultimately “sticks” the shark to help bring it in the boat; a leader man and the boat driver.

During the 10-episode series, viewers will watch all teams during qualifying tournaments on each coast, which will determine what five teams make it to the final rounds in Marina del Ray, Calif. and New Bedford, Mass.

Which coast has the best shark hunters? Tune in to Sportsman Channel to find out.

      The best of the best shark hunters? What a joke.
      They should have had the real shark hunters in so cal who spend 200 days per year hunting Makos. What a bunch of tools.
