Looks like this will be the toughest season yet. It’s sad to see jake and josh not on the cornelia marie. I hope we see jake and josh captains of their dads boat really soon. Everyone’s out for the elusive blue crab this season.

From the upcoming season highlights it looks like there will be a lot of injuries and scary moments. I can’t believe that guy tried to get away with being drunk on the deck. Finally, I have something to look forward to on Tuesdays.

Indeed yes, i love this show. It looked like there will be a "man over board" moment. Dangerous !!

Also the elusive blue crap. Tempting but so difficult to catch. As you said, it looks like it will create a lot of frustration to get to them.

The elusive blue crap I don't know why but that made me laugh

When I saw season 1. I used to actually think I could be a deckhand and would love to try it. I can't believe I actually believed that.

didnt even notice it was back on. i quit following it after the second season. its the same old garbage over and over again. everyone get on the boat, throw pots over, pull pots up, some are full, some arent, sort the crab, throw them in the tank, take them in for processing. the end. all it really is is watching other people work.

oh the reason you dont see the cornelia marie is because its in dry dock getting fixed, that and the fact that the king crab quotas are cut in half for everyone because they have been overfished, and the tanner (bairdi) crab season is completely shut down due to small numbers.

and money, you could do that if you wanted to, i had a buddy that went up and did it awhile back, he did a 3 month contract and made just under 10k. considering the amount of hours he put in, it came out to about a $10hr job

The story line changes because of the characters on the boat. The reason the show is a success is because fans like me enjoy watching the danger and beauty of the ocean.

Plus we become fans of the captains and crew. Wild bill, freddy, keith, monte, elliott, scott, the harris brothers, the hillstrand’s, and jake and the hansen’s and phil (rip)  make the show awesome.

Fishing is the most dangerous job in the world. Check the world rankings. 15-21 hour days in below freezing temperatures soaking wet and ive seen fisherman work 40 hours straight.

Most greenhorns describe it as having the flu body flu with seasickness that is constant and can last hours or days with a sledgehammer and knife in hand on a boat that's listing from side to side, is slippery with ice, in 60-mph winds with no sleep.

Most greenhorns break after the first 450 consecutive pots and that’s just the beginning of the trip. If they make it past the 450 consecutive pots then they have to endure 3-4 hours of sleep and wake up and do it all over again.

Only 10 percent of greenhorns actually make it. I consider myself a bad behind but I don’t know if my brain and body could handle that.

Sig kinda looks like nowitzki’s dad I guess.

I like the Time Bandit. They seem to go by the play hard, work hard attitude.
