When you get a chance to watch “Deadliest Catch,” then you’ll see these crab fishermen take risks all in the hunt for their hauls.
You will hear one captain say something very cogent about ice. At least, it’s about the ice they face while going about their business.
“Ice is like the big bully,” he said. “We all gotta work together. Kick that bully right in the mouth.”
Meanwhile, you also will see what happens when “Wild” Bill Wichrowski and the crew of the “Summer Bay” get tossed around by the sea.
It all makes for one whale of a “Deadliest Catch” season finale. That two-hour show aired on Tuesday night.
Take a look at this preview of what you will be able to see when it airs again.
Previous episodes of “Deadliest Catch” can be seen on The Discovery Channel’s website.
Make sure you set time aside when the season finale is available. These captains are out there risking it all as time ticks away to make their crab hauls.
‘Deadliest Catch’ Star Mandy Hansen Has To Deal With Having Father Sig Out There
Mandy Hansen has been learning a lot from her father, Sig Hansen, while being out on the sea, too.
“Deadliest Catch” fans have been observing how she does when working with crews. She’s also under those carefully observant eyes from dear old Dad.
But she spent time discussing the situation in a 2014 interview with Hollywood Soapbox.
“I wasn’t too worried about anyone else,” Mandy Hansen said. “I was just worried about my family and my crew, and proving myself to them … and being able to keep up on the pods. I didn’t want to be in their way either.”
She knows that she is out there working with people who make crab fishing part of their livelihood. Keep your eyes on a “Deadliest Catch” episode. Watch what tests those fishermen as well as captains on the high seas. We’re talking about both waves and water, Outsiders.
Mandy Hansen talked a little bit about that very mixture.
“A big wave comes up, and you realize where you are,” she said. “That’s the only scary part. You don’t realize it’s that dangerous until you get one of those waves pop up.”
One of the other challenges facing crew members is just living together for a long, long time.
What could happen? How about some flying fists.
Back in 2013 on the Wizard, a greenhorn named Dane Tebo was fed up with veteran deckhand Freddy Maugatai. Apparently, Tebo decided to sucker-punch Maugatai and, then, a fight in the hallway ensued.
Captain Keith Colburn heard the ruckus and went out there. He quickly quieted things down.
