TJ grew up in a family of fishers and hunters. At a young age, he would spend his time on Cape Ann with his father, learning how to fish. He would develop his skills and rise through the ranks, eventually becoming the captain of the family boat called Hot Tuna. He specialized in giant Bluefin tuna though he also goes to Key West, Florida to catch other varieties of fish.
Eventually, he was approached by the producers of “Wicked Tuna”, asking him to be a part of the show. Prior to joining the show, his net worth was already increasing thanks to his success in fishing.
“Wicked Tuna” focuses on teams of fishermen based in Gloucester, Massachusetts who battle over who can catch the most Atlantic Bluefin tuna located in the North Atlantic Ocean. While it has been lucrative, the high amount of fishing has led to the US sanctioning regulations for fishing the specie, as it is endangering them. The show also sheds some light on these issues as tuna fishing is one of America’s oldest industries. Despite this, the show has become very successful and has been running for National Geographic for three seasons to the present. Ott joined the show during its third season with The Hot Tuna, it becoming the largest fishing vessel on the show. He also participated in the replay specials “Wicked Tuna: Hooked Up” which featured more on the fishermen, including their personalities, thoughts, and insights. Though he has yet to become a top earner on the show, the opportunity has proven to help his net worth increase further.
The success of “Wicked Tuna” led the producers to create a spin-off entitled “Wicked Tuna: North vs South” which focuses this time on the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Several teams of the original show would participate in the spin-off including TJ. Eventually, the show was renamed “Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks” and has been running for at least three seasons.
For his personal life, nothing is confirmed about any romantic relationships, but it is believed that TJ is single. TJ loves dogs and owns a pair of Rottweiler dogs. He’s also very active on social media having more than 12,000 followers on Twitter, and over 23,000 followers on Instagram. His Rottweiler dogs are often the subject of his posts on Instagram.
