    I've been watching Deadliest Catch since the beginning. Being a marine biologist, I was naturally drawn to the program. One thing the has interested me is the attitude of the captains and how they've evolved over the years. Jonathan and Andy are truly a class act. They have big hearts as shown by their caring ( J with bird and visiting the hospital with Phil and Andy's demeanor. Your children should be proud Andy. Keep it up.

    I have been watching the show since it started not realizing that you were from Indiana. I am from a small town called Tennyson Indiana. When they local news stations had a news clip on you I was so excited. You would never think you were from a town so close. I thought there is no way. Best of luck to you and the crew!
