As the holiday season draws closer, our favorite “Deadliest Catch” fishermen are working hard to wrap things up…most of them. Some current info gleaned from the respective fishing vessel sites concerning fishing status is:
F/V Northwestern–Trying to wrap things up by November 25th (King crab fishing, that is).
F/V Cornelia Marie–They hope to be done with King crab season in approximately a month.
F/V Wizard–The crew is headed home real soon. They’re expected home this week as Captain Keith will be attending the Seattle Pacific Marine expo.
F/V Maverick–The crew finished up early and left Dutch Harbor almost two weeks ago.
F/V TimeBandit–They’re hitting it hard. According to their Bering Sea Report dated November 8th, they had returned from King crab fishing, switched out their gear, and set out for Bairdi crab fishing.
*Although most crews are still out, we’ll have to wait and see which or how many skippers will make it to Seattle, WA for the Pacific Marine Expo taking place November 15th-17th as they’re all invited.
