This is a badass show. These dudes are hardcore. I am completely fascinated by the process, the elements and the catch. I don't care what those dudes are getting paid, there is no way I would go out on a January Opilio crab fishing season. I never knew that crab fishing was so interesting.

Who else watches this show?

I went out in the gulf on a shrimp boat for 3 weeks once.

Warm water and at best, 9ft swells and I can tell you this. It sucks. What thsoe guys do in the arctic circle is insane. I will never go back on a working boat in any ocean anywhere in the world. Ugh.

IMO, this show is like watching curling....you don't know why you're watching, but for some reason it's very fascinating.

I watched one last night, these guys dropped 100 pots in ten hours. TEN ****ING HOURS out in subzero temps, getting drenched in seawater, and laughing about it. The whole while the captain's up top going, "ya, they're in stage 1 hypothermia right now and don't even know it. You just hope they don't fall overboard right now, but if they do, they've got their jackets on. At least that way the families can have a body to bury..."




those guys are crazy.

anyone know how much a deck hand gets paid?

I watch the late night repeats it is fun to watch & remember I could be working 36 hours straight in fridgid conditions & possibly lose my life.

I like the dudes on the Northwestern partly because I am Norweigan & partly because they are smart & make the dough!

Most of you have probably heard this story, but it fits. We went to Mazatlan decades ago. Naturally, we scour for the cheapest boat run by the natives for the "experience". Well, they knew how to find fish by instinct or something. We got three hits at once. Problem was, I was 12 and so sea sick I lost mine immediately. I puked and puked and actually got a hemmorage in my eye you can still see kinda. My brother lost his after a few minutes, but Dad got his Marlin. It was like the U.S.S. Minnow. He was pretty proud but a storm was comming up, this was an old wooden boat that had to be from the, well, it had alot of miles. Imagine Bob's camaro. So the wind starts blowing in the wrong direction and we are chugging a literally enough to make a couple knots against the wind. It's 30 foot seas when the bilge pump belt breaks so the one assistant goes down to the engine room and emerges with the spare bilge pump belt...that resembled a rope.

By that time I had finally regained my sea legs(I spent tons of time on the lake so I wasn't a p***Y but this was a relatively small boat and very rough seas). So the "captain" has her full throttle and we start bailing. This is a true story. Hell, we were even low on fuel at that point. If the water gets too high, we will all die probably. Well we got in sweating bullets and Dad had his Marlin. Not a monster, but 10 feet probably.

Now to be in that situation in the Bering Sea instead of in the southern Pacific boggles my mind. The boat looked like the one on Gilligans Isle ony rougher.

Just think if you got slammed by a rouge wave like in a few episodes back where the one boat got the **** kicked out of it during the storm.

Yar! I saw a thing on the History channel that proved that Rouge Waves were not an excuse when a captain got one on film. 100 feet high out of nowhere. Sometimes they come in calm seas.

We just had a leaky boat. What do you want for 60 bucks for 3 people. Ironically, you fly how many fish you snag, and we had a flag. Some super cruiser next to us didn't have a flag at all. It's some tradition. Should of had three. Got one tho.

Oh, NYE. I was young but I think we gave the monster away for free. What were we going to do, carry it to the Las Breezas in ice then put him on top of the Electra? Took a picture and gave it to the captain and everyone cheered. It' was cool. They were all cheering. That's alot of fish man.

To this day I wasn't able to fight that monster. I think I had the biggest one. He just yanked me out of my chair, I wasn't strapped in for some reason. He pulled me right into the stern wall.

I love this show...watched last season's show and have been semi watching this season. Makes you appreciate that king crab you eat at red lobster more.

At least it will justify (in my mind) the cost of those succulent legs. Going out into the bering sea is just a bit beyond "adventure"!

Try falling thru the ice on a resivoir at 11,000 feet, twice. I can still swim a river no problem.

Great show.

These guys are men with wills of steel and unbelievable courage.

Did anyone else see the show where the greenhorn got so scared that he was ready to jump off of the boat in the middle of the ocean?

Yep, doubt the dude was ever out in the ocean before, probably heard the money was good for a week at sea & wanted a piece of the action. That was the same boat that got hit by the rogue wave on the way back out to fish again.

I couldn't work like that, I get wobbly on a cruise around Montrose Harbor in Chi-town.

Yea, I've watched the show a number of times and it's pretty good. Those guys do have some brass ones. I don't think I could deal with that job.

I'm a fanatic about watching the show and have been since the beginning - well before the series when it was nothing more then a 1 hour show on Discovery. I've not missed a show yet!!! But come on really - am I the only one watching to see which ship goes down or what guy falls overboard?

anyone know how much a deck hand gets paid?
about 25 thousand for a full deckhand share for a 3 week king crab season
something like that give or take.

Sig's the man. Great show. The best was that greenhorn who had never been on boat decided he didn't like the Bering sea in January and asked the Captain for a survival suit and radio the Coast Guard his position in the water. They had to take him in. If the Cameras weren't there they should have set up a temporary lock-up until they were done.

The last couple episodes have been hard to watch...heartbreaking stuff. Seeing Phil in the state he was in, and looked like part of his skull was removed...just sad to see. Certainly the most emotional season in the show's history.

Some big waves in the Bering Sea...these guys are nuts...



Next week is the 2 hour special on Phil Harris. RIP.
