Captain Phil Harris

1956 - 2010

God grant that I may live to fish,
until my dying day,
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray,
When in the Lord's safe landing net,
I'm peacefully asleep,
That in his mercy I be judged,
As big enough to keep.

  • "I feel like a one legged man in an "a** kicking contest."
  • "This is big-time weather and anything can happen."
  • "You're not a man 'til you've pulled a tooth out with a pair of pliers."
  • "I'd rather see you than Jesus today". (said to Norm the mechanic)
  • "This is why lions eat their young"

    • The coiling contest that he had with his sons.
    • When he pranked the Northwestern by putting a pipe between two shots of line. Very clever.


    Favorite body of water:

    When he's not fishing, Phil creates handmade bird feeders and enjoys riding his Harley with his friends. Phil, just like his boys also has a Passion for Cars. However Phil perfers those American Made.

    Phil is the father Josh and Jake Harris . His sons are deckhands on the Cornelia Marie this season. Phil's son Josh joined the Cornelia Marie's crew during the third season as a greenhorn.

    Other:Captain Phil learned to drive at age 10 thanks to his dad.

    A big cheer goes out to two of the top veterans on the Bering Sea. I read an update last night on a Cornelia Marie site that Captain Phil is doing a whole lot better and is taking the medications that the Dr's gave him. Goes to show that these 2 Captains are the best of the best!!!!!!
