I got hooked a week ago.  I just started getting caught up on all the episodes and am ready for the new ones to start.  It is a cool show.  I would die out there, that's some tuff work!!!

I LOVE that show. I was excited for tonight's episode after watching 2 weeks of re-runs. Those dudes have balls!

thats an understatement. Negative degree weather, huge waves crashing down on you, large metal objects swinging around your head and very strong winds not to mention the long hours and physical exhaustion. You wouldn't catch me out there.

The job has one of the highest Workers' Compensation loss ratios of any of the professions covered.

Usually the Work Comp is placed in the Assigned Risk as the standard carriers will not entertain this type of risk.

But it pays really good money, if you can live through it.

I got hooked on it when it first started.  If I was a young man I don't think I could handle that.  And the Wizard, getting it's hull split on the way to port before the season even starts and a patch job on the hull?   :o

I don't think I'd be getting on that boat, sorry.

I liked the new episodes. Unfortunately I did not get to see the whole second episode that was on last night.

What happened, anything worth staying up for?

That's what I told my wife. No freakin' way. The Captain was like "Eh, that will do until we can get real steelwork done." I was sitting there thinking "Dude, you just got a hole tore in your boat and you weren't even on the Bering Sea yet. Now you are going out there crab fishing through Arctic storm fronts with a patched boat?!?!" No thanks.

Maybe the captain of the wizard had experience with this problem before on another boat and lived! So maybe hes confident!!

It be interesting to watch hopefully the boat wont sink.

I'm picturing a blow torch and some of those BPS aluminum patching sticks.   ;D

Did you happen to hear how much the crew of the early dawn pay was for catching brown crab was.  I think that was the name of the boat I don't remember them last year,  Anyway they caught 1.9 million dollars worth of brown crab maybe it was red don't remember and each member of the crew get 90,000 dollars.   And now there off to join the rest of the fleet for the red crab season.   I'm curious to see if the make there quota how much they will get from that as well.   Thats alot of money but it's all hard earned

Imagine working a couple months out of the year and making 90k. That would be the perfect job for a young guy with no family, and no worries.

That 90K is for a couple of days I believe..

The best part was the crew of the Time Bandit took out a Ford F250 body and tied it to the Cornelia Marie crab basket..

Do you guys know if you can go online and watch the episodes like some other shows.  I missed it last night, it sounded like a good one.

I remember an episode where a greenhorn worked for 3 days and make $4,100 and 1% of profits. It's crazy. Also, I would be beaten black and blue if I had used my dad's credit card without his permission like that boy did last night. I'd say that dudes just brave for attempting something like that!

Great show. I DVR'd every episode last season and am waiting for new ones. What a job. The pay off is incredible but you're literally taking your life in your own hands and putting it in the hands of others. It would be the experience of a lifetime though.
