‘Deadliest Catch’ Star Sig Hansen Brings Daughter Onboard
The latest episode of “Deadliest Catch” has another star on board: Captain Sign Hansen’s daughter, Mandy Pederson. However, this isn’t the first time Mandy’s joined her father during a fishing trip. In fact, last season, Mandy took on a bigger role on her father’s team. During an interview in 2020, Hansen talked about whether or not he wants Mandy to forge a fishing career for herself.
“I would hope so. But I think it’s because she feels indebted to a family business,” said Hansen. “That being said, she’s always wanted to be on the boat. She’s been on there since he was 13-14 every summer doing our salmon tendering. I don’t want her to feel like she has to because fishing is so volatile. There’s no guarantee you’ll even have a season the next year or the next year. You have prices fluctuate so much. It’s really a pretty stressful lifestyle. I don’t wish it on anybody, honestly.”
Hansen added that he’s had many close calls in his life. And he doesn’t want his daughter to have to experience the same type of danger.
“I had a leg up looking back. I was fortunate with timing and some decisions I made in life. And just being alive. I’ve dodged so many bullets in my life. With so many friends gone, why would I wish that on my own kid? I’m not going to reinforce her like that. I can’t do that. Because if something happened, I would never live it down. I’ve dodged death many, many times at sea. I just don’t know how she would react if she was in the same position on her own, and that’s something I just wouldn’t wish for anybody.
We’ll just have to keep watching “Deadliest Catch” to find out how Mandy’s career path unfolds.
