Saturday evening at 9pm eastern, the F/V Northwestern Forum web team held their first official livechat with none other then Captain Sig Hansen, himself! 

Due to the overloaded server and huge amount of traffic attempting to access the chat room, what was meant to be a simple question & answer livechat done somewhat a la Discovery- style in that questions were gathered prior to the actual chat, turned into an hour and a half long, free flowing off-the-cuff interview held by both the forum team AND fans! 

This livechat format was set up slightly different then the telephone interviews held by  Discovery throughout the airing of Deadliest Catch season 3.  For this livechat, one of the forum web team members actually met up with Sig Hansen at his home, sat side by side with him throughout the chat, and performed the duties of typist as the skipper responded to the multitudes of questions posed to him.  Approximately an hour into this process, accessing  questions that fans had posted in the days prior to the livechat became impossible, but fortunately the inquisitive Northwestern fans carried on and improvised by asking their favorite captain questions on the spur of the moment and in turn and without skipping a beat, Sig Hansen responded quick and naturally as if he were simply chatting with his crew.

According to the buzz, Northwestern fans had a great time picking Sig Hansen’s brain.  And from the forum team, Sig was so impressed with his fan base that he cannot believe how great his fans are and likewise,  that everything went so smoothly despite the excessive traffic.  Apparently he was as amused with fans as they were with him.

    Hey Sig.
    Well I’m a huge fan of the show.
    I was wondering do you guys fish anywhere else but the Bering Sea? Or really is there anywhere else to fish what your looking for?

  2. opilia says:

    Bryanna–I dont want you or anyone else to think I speak for the Hansens, but from what I’ve heard him say…they stick to the Bering sea for the commercial fishing, however I’ve read where they fish for fun in other areas.
