Deadliest Catch Captain Profiles | John Hillstrand

John Hillstrand Bio: Capt. John Hillstrand (age 45) has a love for life on the edge that doesn't end when he gets off the boat. He rides a Harley Davidson that is rigged with a nitrous boost that will add 300hp of acceleration at the touch of a button. He’s a leather-jacket-cowboy boot guy, but his friends say he is really a teddy bear. He is not afraid to speak his mind and he runs a tight ship. John has 2 children, recently became a grandfather (twice) and spends his time between Seattle, Wash., and Homer, Alaska. He has a great sense of humor and is very generous. When John was asked if the guys talked much on the boat he said: “Not while we are fishing, but off the deck we are a bunch of hens.”

    if you want to meet Johnathan then make it happen.. i just love the juxtaposition of John the hardened serious salty grizzled Sea mariner and John softy teddy bear who rescues people and birds .. as for derrick the captain of Cornelia Marie ,Josh approached him after Phil';s death to help them but Derrick let power take him over and altho i understand he is responsible for Josh Jake and the crew he went over board with the boys

    I would love to meet Johnathan, and see the boats up close and personal. Have not missed an episode and crazy about this show. I live in Berryville, Va, Like Mayberry RFD. 2 lights in the town. HA. Who would think a crazy nurse in the country would fall for this. I am a bad girl but good at it. This show rocks. How can you meet Johnathan??? or any of the captains. Maybe they can film on the Shenandoah river. I am so sad about Phil, and disappointed with the new captain. I do not like the way he treats the boys. He needs to be out. How many people agree with me? Why didn't Murray take over. Who found that captain. Poor Jake and Josh. I love you guys and keep up the show. Jrexx

    But this Deadliest Catch has to be my very favorite . I love the ships, I love fishing , I love crabs , the guys are awesome , considering how the camera's get in the face , during some of life's most difficult moments , which would hard for anyone let alone out at or on sea ! I love the fact that for the most part these are family owned and family works together and suffer together and take those hard times and or moments , and do the best they can . The scenery shots , the ocean , are spectacular !!!!
