Sig Hansen Down Under!

A little “Deadliest Catch” tidbit:  While the F/V Northwestern and its crew have been up in Alaska tendering salmon and now pot-cod fishing, Captain Sig Hansen has been promoting the show in different venues.  The latest–New Zealand! 

To celebrate the opening episode of “Deadliest Catch” season 3 in Australia, New Zealand radio station, 95bFM and it’s morning personality Mike Havoc, started off their day by interviewing none other then one of our own favorite fishermen and skippers, Sig Hansen of the F/V Northwestern.  It’s a well known fact that the F/V Northwestern has a huge international fanbase so how fitting that he should go global in promoting “Deadliest Catch”

The interview from “down under” is an interesting one where interviewer Mike, asks some unique questions such as:

Mike:  You probably starting fishing to make a wage, to earn money, to be active and not loafing around obviously, dreaming of one day to earn enough money to escape fishing.  But now you’re a world superstar tv fisherman/captain, crab fisherman and you’ve got fans now who say, “Get back on that boat Capt. Sig! Get back out in the treacherous seas!”  So hows that?  How’s that whole thing?

Sig:  That’s cool!  I don’t mind.  It’s fun.  We’ve got lots of fans all over the world and it’s amazing!
