Dean Jagger plays a tuna fishing boat captain who hasn't been having much success – until now. The big tuna are running and he's catching them, although the ones we see in the episode seem a bit small- about the size of bowling pins. Kimble has become his assistant- his only one. He has two main problems: his son is organizing a strike which will prevent him from unloading his catch- his best in a long time. And he has a heart condition. There is a brawl and they and many of the strikers get arrested- and finger-printed. Kimble has to leave but Jagger wants to go back out- so much he'll do it alone.

I have to think a tuna boat would have a crew of more than two. And I don't think a tuna boat would out-run a coast guard cutter or that the police would give up because the tuna boat disappeared in the smoke from an exploding shell from the cutter. But the sea looks beautiful in color, a rare instance in which color enhances an aspect of this show.
