I saw the Deadliest Catch one, awhile ago, with crab fishing, and halfway through the trip, it ended! That was the show! I was pissed. Maybe this is the new part

I try to avoid letting my family (aka my mom) see these shows...lessens my chances of fishing...

Also when ever there is something on the news about how someone drowned somewhere, whether it be ocean, lake or through the ice...I fear my freedom to fish jeapordized...

I myself love this kinda stuff...... :D

Crab fishing is dangerous because:

They have only a week or less, a year, to fish.
They fish off of the Alaskan Coast
Fridgid water
Dangerous Seas
Major hurry.
Lots of money to be made, or lost.
Its all Hit or Miss
Most People are inexperienced and looking for some quick money.
Only 1 coast guard chopper, and 1 boat in the area, chopper is something like 150 miles away from main fishing areas

There's more, it truly is the most dangerous job out there, on average a crew loses atleast 1 person.

Imagine the insurance rates on that boat!!!

Thats an awesome site...

Play the game...

If you look in the trailer...theres one little clip that shows the deck and a guy jumping in the air as the boat rolls over a wave. He almost floats in mid-air for a second...

Default Good show

Yeah that show was pretty good, kinda like a reality tv type show.
Pretty cool and I now have a greater appreciation for the crabs I love so much.

I actually get them frozen at Sams Club all the time, my daughters and I will sit down dig in.... ahhh it's so good

They sure are, but did you hear that?

14 million pounds of crab is fleet limit=
5 dollars per pound=
70 million dollars.

Is resold for 30 dollars a pound. Yikes.
Its gonna be hell for that Lady Luck boat, seeing as they lost the side balance thing. Yikes!

Good show though, def gonna watch da series.
