SYNOPSIS: Eighty-four hours into the opilio season, the hunt for crab intensifies as rumors of a possible closure prompt the men to push even harder. Some boats are so successful their captains begin wondering where to put excess crab, while others, finally hitting the "honey hole," try to make up for their slow start.

But throughout the fleet crews begin to fatigue as the pending season closure drives them forward. This is the last time they will fish in a derby-style competition, and everyone wants to make their final run a memorable one.

  • Another one bites the dust. The last one bites the dust. -- Captain Jeff Weeks - Billikin
  • "One in the block, one on the bow, one on the stern, and a table full of crab. See that makes a skipper smile. Crew not happy when skipper does that. --Captain Sig Hansen- Northwestern

  • "Yahoo Buckaroo, this is what it is all about" --Hirim Johnson - Maverick

  • "Sig loves fishing, he loves sleeping on his feet, but thats his problem." Edgar Hansen - Northwestern
