SYNOPSIS: After a long, sleepless night of baiting and setting crab pots, the fishermen anxiously await the captain's call to begin hauling them in. What's in the first pot of the season as it's pulled onto the deck sets the mood for the crew, and the questions on everyone's mind are who's got crab and where are they fishing?

Some boats are "on the crab," while others are "pulling blanks." The early losers agonize over strategy, hoping to make up for lost catch, while the winners try to figure out how to keep the crab coming. Others just want to start fishing ... One boat has broken the bin boards in its storage tank, which must be fixed before they can pull in their first pot. Every minute spent repairing broken equipment costs the crew serious money, and the greenhorns learn quickly that there's no sympathy for fatigue.

  • It might just go to show that with this geriatric crew that old age and treachery may out fox youth and skill if there are prizes here. -- Captain Larry Hendricks, F/V Sea Star

  • Captain Gary Edwards of the ill-fated Big Valley gives a lesson on survival suits.

  • The Saga crew play "pin the tail on the greenhorn" and teach him how to "catch air".

  • On the Western Viking they remove 14 pots from their hold to find that the binboards are broken so they must repair them before they can bring any crab aboard. The fix doesn't end up holding so they must remove the boards which will leave the crab less protected in the tank during rough weather.

  • The replay of greenhorn Kevin's overboard incident when he nearly lost his life.
