    I actually thought they said Dutch Harbor Dog Farts. Guess I should listen more closely. Good thing I did not strut into an Alaska bar and order one! :D

    I caught a glimpse of one of the chase boats last night. I wonder what kind of boat they "chase" the crab boats in. If it is much smaller than the big boat I imagine that it is a heck of a ride in those big seas.

    I had always suspected they filmed the "star" boats and threw camera crews on a number of others, then just went with which boat(s) had the most drama for the extra footage.

    I wondered when the kid would have the time to watch DVD's, let alone play video games. Pulling 18 hour shifts of that job, all I'd be able to do in my off time is sleep.

    Can you imagine watching Cloverfield or Blair Witch on that boat? Talk about seasick!!! :D

    I think in Derby fishing, there is a fleet quota instead of a boat quota. Whenever the entire combined fleet catch reaches the limit, the season is over, regardless of how much any individual boat caught. No one really knew when the season would end, which is why they had to work as hard as they did.

    Wholeheartedly agree, that was all staged and although they may be great crab fisherman, they suck at acting.

    I sure hope Deadliest Catch does not go the way of "Little People, Big World". That show got popular on it's day-to-day normal life drama, and now it is all about staged events and product placement. yuck.

    Very true and why I haven't bothered moving the season pass over.

    I was actually surprised that they were allowed to dump a car into the ocean. I guess that it really is no different than a reef, but I can see where some people could get upset about it. Plus...from pics I've seen of the ocean floor from the Bering Sea, it looks sandy with no coral/reefs.

    When you are in the middle of the Bering Sea how much "allowing" is needed really?

    Doing it doesn't surprise me. Letting someone film it seems silly and could come back to bite you.

    I don't see how it's much different than leaving pots in "wet storage" or what about pots that get lost if a line breaks?

    It was good to see that the engine had been removed though.

    btw....I can't wait to see footage from the sub that they showed in the "behind the scenes" special. I've always wanted to see the crabs actually enter the traps.

    I was surprised at that, too. It did look like it was just the shell of the truck. I didn't see an engine. That's what they do when they create those artificial reefs using old ships. They remove the oil and fuel and stuff that could contaminate the ocean.

    They did peek my interest in this "new" Brown King Crab season I never knew existed. Seems like lots of money to be made there. They said each crew member got $90k EACH on that boat. It was interesting that they used the same technique as the "Lobster Wars" show where all the traps are tied together in one long continous chain.

    I just like how on the brown crab season show, they talked about how anxious they were to get started on Red Crab season because it was so "lucrative", then it said they earned 1.9 million on the brown crab, sounds much more lucrative to me!

    I can only guess that brown crab season is MUCH longer and they had to capture a lot more brown crab, but who knows?

    It appeared that there was no engine, tailpipe, electronics, etc type of h/w that would be a real pollution issue. Not to say they weren't doing some illegal dumping, but I'd guess that this was planned and they did some work ahead of time to mitigate the pollution issues.
