SYNOPSIS: The Time Bandit finally finds the ice pack and discovers that it's much closer to their gear than expected. The Rollo fishes through gnarly weather close to the ice pack, and the entire crew of the Maverick has to work through a ship-wide flu epidemic as they pull a long string of 100 pots. The crew of the Cornelia Marie is having a tough time finding opilio crab, and they continue catching tons of tanner. That doesn't keep greenhorn Jake Harris from being in high spirits when he throws the hook for the first time. Sig and the Northwestern crew finish up their cod season, and deck boss Edgar Hansen becomes a new father.
