SYNOPSIS: The grinding 2006 red king crab fishing marathon comes to a close as holds fill with king gold. The boisterous Time Bandit captain can't believe his eyes as record pots come over the rail, putting him in position to place in the race to catch 100,000 pounds in the fewest pots. Sig Hansen and the Northwestern crew finish a 30-hour grind and steam for port while Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie (aka "the Comeback Kid) returns to Dutch injury free. Greenhorn Captain Blake from the Maverick steams to Kodiak and discovers he's short -- payday might not be what was expected for the crew. Matt Bradley on the Northwestern readies himself for another chilly sentence, i.e., prison. With money in their pockets, the fishermen return home for a short rest before returning to the 2007 opilio crab season.

MAJOR SETBACKS
VICTORIES
  • When the Maverick offloadds their crab they find that they are 38oo pounds short which is just about how much they rail dumped at the end of the season thinking they had caught their quota. This cost the boat $20,000 and eack deckhand got a $1500 cut in pay.






  • Captain Johnathan of the Time Bandit wins the Captain's Wager and donates all of that money as well as a check to the Seafarer's Memorial Fund.

  • Captain Johnathan sets an 80 pot string in the shape of an upside down horseshoe and every pot in the string has over 100 keepers.

  • The Northwestern completes their season in time for Deckhand Matt Bradley to make his court date in Seattle and avoid 8 months in jail.

  • Captain Blake Painter of the Maverick has a successful first season as the captain of the Maverick.
MOST HAIR-RAISING MOMENTS
  • On the Cornelia Marie a pot flies off the launcher and nearly takes out Deckhand Jake Harris. Luckily, Jake was quick enough to move out of the way but he was rattled.
