SYNOPSIS: With the deaths of the Big Valley crew, this opilio crab season has been a rough one. On every boat, crew members are reaching their limit, but are spurred on by the pressure to catch a year's wages in the next 24 hours.

As the last hours of the season tick down, a new race begins: the race back to port. Since off-loading is done on a first-come-first-serve basis, captains must decide when and where to unload their catch, competing for the best spot in line at the processor. Crab can't last forever in a boat, so a few days waiting could mean tens of thousands of dollars.

Boat Profile Page - Deadliest Catch WikiDEADLIEST CATCH FAN FEEDBACK
  • It's the end of an era. For the Alaskan Crab Fishermen this was the last chance to chase the rainbow and hope for the pot of gold. -- Mike Rowe

  • I'm so happy now I'd even give my enemies a present. -- Deckhand Hiram Johnson - Maverick

  • Deckload of Opilio crab on the Northwestern.
  • Edgar Hansen of the Northwestern sets his coat and the hook on fire for the last hook of the season.
  • Lady Alaska's Captain Pete Liske believed that God had made their crab multiply while they waited on anchor to offload as the catch was $36,000 above what he had estimated. The captain then said, " God doesn't give you what you want but he gives you what you need."
  • Sig Hansen closes the final episode and gives an emotional farewell to the close of era--Derby style fishing.
  • Jeff Weeks checks the tanks bare footed.
  • On the Northwestern Matt's crab tally is off by 20,000 pounds
    • The Closing of the show

    • The Maverick has to sit at anchor for 7 days before they can offload their catch. There is a lot of dead loss at first but it clears up and is not as catastrophic as they had first imagined.
    • On the Retriever the ship goes dark a second time. There is a clog in the engine that caused the outage this time. They are back up and running after 2 hours of repairs.


    • The story of the F/V Saint Patrick, November 29, 1981. The St. Patrick was towed to Woman's bay were she then sank.
