Does anyone here watch this program? It's on Tuesday nights at 9:00ET on the Discovery Channel.

If you like crab legs, it makes you appreciate why they're expensive. These guys really go through some sh*t on the Bering Sea. Season finale is tonight. I have to get this searies on DVD. These guys could easily fall overboard and die in the frigid waters. :D Great show but not for the faint of heart.

Somehow I got hooked on it. Just finished watching the season finale. They definitely earn their money. Especially after seeing that one episode where one of the boats gets hit by a sixty foot rogue wave and is knocked on its side. :D

I watch it every now and then. Sunday night I had some king crab, and I thought about the show. I am watching the NBA finals tonight, but I think they replay the show later in the evenings, and on Thursdays, so hopefully I can catch the finale later.

I got an old friend from high school that works on those boats(none of the boats in the show). He tells me what he makes per each season and I was thinking he was full of it. After watching the show I guess he does make that much. He started out as a cook and is deckhand now going through all the licensing to be a Captain. He said I think it is a 3 or 5 year process. The boats that he fishes on are old navy boats, can't remember what kind he said. They would buy them at auctions than convert them. After seeing the hell they go through they can keep it IMO.

I didn't miss an episode this season. I had a hunch that the Hanson boys had nice looking families. Living in Seattle and making that kind of change twice a year (remember they own the boat, so I am sure they get more money). My question is, what do these guys do the other 8 months out of the year? The Northwestern fished cod and opies for about 2 months. They drive the boat from Seattle to Alaska which takes time, and they fish King Crab for one month. Whats up with the rest of the year?

Thats a good question. Maybe another seasonal job like landscaping?

they chill. Sig Hanson is a celebrity here now in Seattle. they make so freak'in much money that i'm sure there isn't much they need to do in the off season.

 

a friend of mine rented a house from an engineer on one of the boats a while back.... long before the show started. the guy would come home with his pockets stuffed with cash & spend the summers buying rental properties & fixing them up. At last count he owned something like 20 rentals in a pretty nice area north of seattle. I also umpire baseball with a fella that does it in the offseason....... the guy makes freak'in bank. :D why he umpires... i have no clue. He however only fishes for cod when he's up there... no crab.

 

As for the show..... it's one of my favs... hand down.

Watching it last night and the worst boat had the deck hands only making like $10,000 but the best boat had each one with a share worth like $56,000! Not bad bread for a gig that lasts for what - a month or two?

I used to work with a guy who took a leave of absence and went to work on one of those boats. He only did it once. Made $43 K for a two month gig but he also said 23 hour days were the norm and that he spent most of his time beating on the gear to break up the ice. Not a healthy lifestyle to say the least.
