Even before the Crabbroker has the opportunity to return from his “Crab Connoisseur Tour” held in Dutch Harbor, Alaska this last weekend, it can surely be said that many people–fishermen, skippers, and food industry insiders partook of several great King crab feasts. The lucky individuals who traveled to Dutch not only went fishing to catch their own King crab, they enjoyed time on the F/V Cornelia Marie, the F/V Timebandit and just last evening, broke bread with none other then Captain Blake Painter and deckboss Scott Templin of the F/V Maverick among others!
It sounded like a great gathering where a very good time was being had by everyone and more details will be available as soon as sponsor–The Crabbroker–has a chance to catch his breath.
Captain Blake reports that the F/V Maverick has fished it’s quota for the King crab season and the crew is headed home today. Original Productions did indeed film aboard the F/V Maverick and all hope that there was plenty of footage to air so that they may entertain us fans. Thank you Blake and Scott! One last note…Captain Blake has been a hard worker for all of his 28 years. He’s been running both the F/V Maverick and his family’s boat the F/V Evening Star. As a matter of fact, he’s worked hard enough that he’s decided it’s now time to shop for his own fishing vessel! It’s true!
