    I know this is wrong, but the entire time Josh was yelling on ATC I just kept looking at his ears. They were mesmerizing.

    Agree 100% although I don't think they'd ever do it now. That ship has sailed ;)

    I'm not getting the feeling these two are going to be fishing for much longer... I think they'll stick around as long as Discovery Channel is willing to pay them and then I think they'll be gone. They just don't seem born to do it the way most of those guys do. Maybe they can get their own show? Oh yeah, that's right... They don't know how to do anything... :p

    Not only to learn from someone else, but to just get away from that boat. The Cornelia Marie would have to be a dreadful place for those boys without Cap'n Phil. They need to get their eyes looking at something different; not the wheelhouse where Phil used to be...

    Forgot to say, the Wizard picking up Freddie was a big score in my eyes. He is a hell of a crewmate from what I've seen. Him and Lenny are a winning pair. Good job Keith.

    I didn't catch ATC, but regarding the posts where it's been said that Phil didn't teach his boys - which is what I believe was at the heart of Derrick's attitude about the whole thing.

    I seem to remember Phil feeling that Jake was much more likely to carry on in the fishing business and he seemed to feel that Josh just didn't have it - mainly the desire, I think, more than the ability. I've always felt that Phil hadn't taught his kids much because they didn't step up and show an interest/desire to learn more.

    When Phil died, I didn't think either of them was much longer for the business. It seemed that Josh made moves to step up, but I think that was more in honor of Phil than a real desire.

    And good job Freddie. He's no fool. I think I'd have bailed on those two idiots too. He's gonna make a lot more money with Keith. ;)

    Freddie indicated he could have been making a lot more money for years but he went out with Phil because the boat was family to him. Now he's going for the money.

    Moving Away from the CM: Good Move.
    Moving to the Wizard: Not so Good Move.

    Depends on what you want. The Wizard has a rep for working tons of hours. Obviously some are good with that. And they make good money because they do work so hard. They were showing Freddie on the Wizard last night and Keith was talking about how much of a good influence he was on the rest of the crew and how he fit in perfectly. I think Freddie is a hard worker so it might suit him just fine.

    Shouldn't we move to a new OPIE 2011 season thread? :)

    Wizard: Freddie and the cod blood... Yes! That is the type of person I would love to work along and Keith even commented that he brings great energy to everyone.

    Northwestern: DOWN, GET THE F... DOWN. OMG, that was one hell of a wave. Sig didn't warn the crew in the back so I'm guessing they were in the boat and not out working. Even though they showed the crew back there, I'm thinking that was editing.

    Time Bandit: There is ONE captain and do it my way. You are correct Andy! ...and Yeow to pulling the teeth.

    Ramblin Rose: Slow down your speach Elliott. :)

    Yeah, we should probably have an Opie 2011 thread. In any case, Freddie is freakin' awesome. Like Keith said, he is a lightning bolt that just improves crew morale immensely. That is very valuable.

    And on the Northwestern, Nick(? Jake's uncle) getting hit in the face with that hook. Dang. As Sig said, it could have been much worse. It could have taken out an eye, or even killed him. Yeah, I assume the crew was inside when that wave hit, or Sig would have been screamin' on the microphone to them outside, not just yelling at the camera man in the bridge. Just editing.

    However, throughout the seasons, I'm not surprised more crewmen haven't been swept overboard by rogue waves. I remember one man overboard in the past, and it was in bad weather, but it wasn't because of a wave. IIRC, he was trying to restrain an out-of-control pot. I know he survived, which also surprised me.

    Last week or week before his face got slammed into the sorting table by a wave. He had a big cut in his eyebrow, so I'm guessing they had to shave it to put in stitches.

    The anchor had a buoy attached to it via a line (much like the pots), and they just hooked the buoy and hauled it back on board. A 1500 lb anchor isn't much heavier than a full crab pot, although a 1500 lb anchor probably has nearly that much weight in attached chain, too. Last we saw of it, it was on deck, so I don't know if they are in a situation where they could actually redeploy it.

    Ok I guess when they showed the re-enactment I assumed the line broke lower than the bouy.

    No, the buoy line was attached directly to the anchor. So when they hauled the anchor up, the anchor was the first thing out of the water, followed by the anchor chain. I'm guessing the anchor cable broke where it was attached to the anchor chain, but I couldn't say for certain.

    That wave, and the look on Sig's face almost made me "shart"!
