Deadliest Catch
« on: July 03, 2010, 12:30:32 PM »
Deadliest Catch is addictive, filming fishing for crab in the Bering Sea. The Discovery Channel will have a marathon of past shows on Saturday and Sunday, July 3 and 4th, 2010. If you have never seen this series, now is the time to catch up.

Each show highlights what is happening on one of five vessels. The Cornelia Marie, Kodiak, Time Bandit, Northwestern and The Wizard, the captains and crews.

You cannot watch without being drawn into their lives and the hardships of providing fresh crab that we eat without realizing how hard and dangerous it is to catch them and get them to shore. Chopping ice off the ships lines and railings so the boat won't capsize, pulling pots in freezing cold. Working day and night and not finding crab in the pots.

Here's a taste:

The next few episodes will continue to cover the agonizing condition of Captain Phil Harris who suffered a massive stroke hours after the Cornelius Marie docked to offload their crabs. He was found on the floor of his cabin completely paralyzed on the left side. Then flown to Anchorage where he underwent surgery to have part of his skull removed to relieve the pressure.

I wonder too, this was a huge season. So many unpredictable things happened. Will Edgar come back to help Sid? Who will take over if the brothers actually turn over the ship? Josh, on the Cornelia Marie, can he manage it? (I don't think so personally, his brother might be a help with the crew but he is so young and has a drug problem that needs to be addressed and taken care of.)

I'm sure Captain Bill will be back but he's not a favorite of mine.

Justin Tennison of 'Deadliest Catch' Dead at 33

'Deadliest Catch' star Justin Tennison was found dead in a Homer, Alaska hotel room on Tuesday, TMZ reports. The fisherman on the Time Bandit boat was 33 years old.

"Discovery Channel is saddened by the passing of Time Bandit crew member Justin Tennison," the 'Deadliest Catch' network wrote in a statement. "We send our sympathies to his entire family and fellow crew members during this most difficult time."

TMZ says a search of the hotel room, registered to Tennison, turned up "a small amount of marijuana, as well as several bottles of alcohol in the refrigerator. Cops tell us they believe there had been a party in the room the night before."

Justin Tennison's death comes just a year after 'Deadliest Catch' star Capt. Phil Harris's passing in February 2010 after a stroke.

Lt. Randy Rosencrans tells USA Today that Tennison died of unknown causes and the state medical examiner's office was set to conduct an autopsy Wednesday afternoon.

Time Bandit Capt. Andy Hillstrand wrote on Facebook:

Justin fished commercially for many years, living in Alaska for 28 years. He worked on the Time Bandit, alongside his second cousin, Eddie Uwekoolani, Jr., serving as Engineer during the tendering seasons, and joined the Time Bandit crew as a deckhand fishing the Red King 2010 and Opilio 2011 seasons.

Justin was tough as a bull and was an all-around good hand. The Captains and Crew appreciated his hard work and many contributions this past year. We will miss him terribly and wish his family all the best during this most difficult time.


EW notes that Tennison's boat has started a memorial on the Time Bandit's official website. There, friends, family and friends have begun sharing memories and condolences.

Sailor?? :lol3:

The season premire was good.. not great.. I was hoping for more Cornillia interaction and some behind the scenes stuff while they had  down time prepping for the season.


It's always hard with a new new cast of characters to enjoy any show and this proves to be so with me on this season. 1 whole new boat, several new faces on other boats.. and for the only the 2nd  time in 10 years they were alllowed to fish BLUE CRABS.

Seems like northwestern deckhand jake hasgrown weathered.. and has hopes of beign a captian. maybe that will be the  underlying story of the season.

Mike from the Time Bandit DID have his own boat but seeing him last nite i guess that wasnt too sucessful. :duno:

I hope there's alot of great storylines and fishing to be had this season.

it was nice to see the Coast Gaurd do  thier thing last nite! :tup:


Strap yourself in on the pulpit we are going for a Bering Sea Trip! :keeta:

Eating the head of a herring, one boat's tradition for the greenhorn before they set the first cage. I'd try for another boat personally.  :lol:

Next week: Jake takes the wheel. This is a kid who has grown into a man over the past few seasons.

The boats:

Cornelia Marie
 
TYPE: 128-foot house aft

Number of POTS: 180

* KING CRAB CAPACITY: 312,000 lbs

* BUILT: 1989 Alabama

* CATCH SEASONS: 1 to 6

Captain:  Captain Derrick Ray

Engineer: Steve Ward

Deckhand: Josh Harris

Deckhand: Jake Harris

Deckhand:  Freddy Maugatai

Greenhorn: Ryan Simpson

The original Cornelia Marie had a extensive rebuild in 1995 that added 21 feet to her overall length and increased her catch holding capacity to one of the highest for a crabber. She is named after Cornelia Marie Devlin, a co-owner of the boat who handles much of the daily business of the boat's operation. The Cornelia Marie's twin Mitsubishi engines generate 630 horsepower for a top speed of around 10 knots but they've often been an engineer's and captain's nightmare.

Northwestern

TYPE: 127-foot Marco house forward vessel

POTS: 250

KING CRAB CAPACITY: 251,000 lbs

BUILT: 1977 Seattle, WA

HOME PORT: Seattle, WA

Captain: Sig Hansen

Deckboss/Engineer:Edgar Hansen

Deckhand/Backup Engineer: Norman Hansen

Deckhand: Nick Mavar, Jr.

Deckhand:Matt Bradley

DeckhandMark Peterson

Deckhand :Jake Anderson,  Jr.

The Northwestern was built by Sverre Hansen, a pioneer in the Alaskan king crab fishery and the father of Sig, Edgar and Norman. The original boat was 108 feet long and specifically designed to harvest king and tanner crabs in the Bering Sea. A few years later, when the king crab catches collapsed, the Northwestern became one of the first boats to fish for opilio crabs. Throughout the 1980's the Hansens and their boat kept busy fishing during most of the year by following the various crab populations' seasonal patterns. Twice since then the Northwestern has been lengthened to pack more crab and carry more pots.

Time Bandit

TYPE: 113-foot house aft

POTS: 137

KING CRAB CAPACITY: 120,000 lbs

HOME PORT: Homer, AK

BUILT: 1991 Coos Bay, OR

CATCH SEASONS: 1 to 6

Captain: Johnathan Hillstrand

Captain: Andy Hillstrand

Engineer/Cook Neal Hillstrand

Deckhand:  Scott Hillstrand

Deckhand: Eddie Uwekoolani

Deckhand: Mike Fourtner

Deckhand: Justin Tennison


Adorned with the Jolly Roger on the bow, the Time Bandit is the closest thing to a Pirate boat currently plying the Bering Sea. A family-run boat, the Time Bandit is skippered by brothers Johnathan Hillstrand during King Season and Andy Hillstrand during Opies with younger brother Neal acting as boat engineer/cook and Johnathan's son, Scott, working the deck. The two older brothers are well known for their antics: practical jokes, fireworks on deck and creative greenhorn hazing. But that doesn't mean they take fishing lightly

Seabrooke

TYPE: 109-foot house aft

POTS: 135

KING CRAB CAPACITY: 120,000 lbs

HOME PORT: Kodiak, AK

BUILT: 1979 Wilmington

Captain: Scott Campbell

Relief Captain/Engineer: Bob Perkey

Relief Captain/Engineer: Mike Bouray

Deckhand: Mac White

Deckhand: Derrick Haist

Deckhand/Greenhorn: Chris "Whipper" Welch

The Seabrooke is a leader among the "new pioneers" of crab fishing in the Bering Sea. Intent on taking on the old guard and making their mark, the aggressive crew is led by a young captain who will pull no punches to be the best in the fleet. The Seabrooke is also the "Corvette" of the Bering: it's fast, it's red and it packs heavy horsepower. The skipper plans to sail it into the weather to hunt on grounds away from the pack in order to bring home the crab. This is a boat made for serious fishing.

Ramblin' Rose

Captain: Elliott Neese

Deckhand boss: Kevin Davis

Deckhand:  Faresa Iaulualo

Deckhand: Tim Lovins

Deckhand: James Creel

Small and "economical" in the words of the skipper, the Ramblin' Rose is run by a young crew with a young skipper and a lighthearted attitude. In an odd dynamic, the greenhorn deckhand is the oldest man on the boat. The Rose isn't the prettiest boat in the fleet, but an agile vessel with men working hard for their money. On this boat, the pots are hand pushed because the crew is young and strong and they find it faster. Two of the crew are new to the boat, but they have fished before, and were recommended to the skipper by trusted friends. Most are single only the skipper among the full share crewmen has families or kids. Their youth and relative inexperience will be on display as they contend with the old warhorses the Rose has nowhere to go but up.

Wizard

TYPE: 155-foot house aft vessel

POTS: 250

KING CRAB CAPACITY: 400,000 lbs

BUILT: 1945 Brooklyn, NY

HOME PORT: Seattle, WA

CATCH SEASONS: 3 to 6

Captain: Keith Colburn

Relief Captain: Monte Colburn

First Mate: Gary Soper

Engineer: Lenny Lekanoff

Deckhand: Crosby LeVeen

Deckhand: Lynn Guitard

Greenhorn: Paul Edgren
   
The Wizard started out as a U.S. Navy yard oiler, built at the end of World War II, but never put into naval service. The boat sat mothballed in Boston Harbor until 1978 when she was purchased by fisherman John Jorgenson who oversaw her conversion into a crab boat that went to work in the Bering Sea fisheries the following year. Both Keith and Monte Colburn learned many of their crab captain skills while working for John on the Wizard. In 2005, Keith and his wife Florence purchased the vessel with the confidence that they could maintain the boat's consistently high production levels. These high yields are possible, in part, because of the large tanks inherited from her original construction.

Kodiak

Captain: Wild Bill Wichrowski

Engineer: Adam McCalden

Deckhand:  Tony Castillo

Deckhand: Jake Jolibois

Deckhand: Eric Anderson

Greenhorn: Zack Larson

Last year's new boat in the Deadliest Catch fleet, Kodiak was more like an old school gunslinger returning to town to lay down a claim. It's captain, Wild Bill Wichrowski, had spent most of his life resisting pressure from fish and game officials, regulators, and political types who never seem to give up trying to "civilize" Dutch harbor, its crab fleet and Bering Sea fishing Coming back to cold waters from the warm seas of Mexico, the old pot slinger reappeared to the crab game to find he had grown rusty, but no less ornery. He even stayed frosty toward his newest greenhorn, Zach, his own son.
