Captain Keith Colburn and Captain Blake Painter were the only two “Deadliest Catch” skippers able to attend the Seattle Pacific Marine Expo from the middle of November as reported earlier. While there, the two shared more information on their lives as Bering sea fishermen by answering questions from expo attenders. (Photos are all courtesy of Keith Colburn).
