If you’re a die-hard “Deadliest Catch” fan you’ve probably heard of chaser boats. If not, maybe this is new…When “Deadliest Catch” is filmed, certain fishing vessels are designated as chaster boats or boats that “chase” after featured boats and crew so that the film crews may get their long shots, etc… Sometimes the chaser boats are also featured fishing vessels who do double duty and sometimes it’s fishing vessels we don’t ever see. One of the major chaser boats for “Deadliest Catch” season 4 is the Sea Star. Owned by Captain Larry Hendricks, the F/V Sea Star was featured on “Deadliest Season” and again in season 1 of “Deadliest Catch”. This last year, the Sea Star spent her summer in Ketchikan, Alaska where tourists were able to come aboard, meet the crew, and learn all about crab fishing. According to a close source, all outside shots of the featured fishing vessels were filmed from the Seastar’s deck and come January 15th, the Seastar and her crew will once again head out into the Bering sea for Opilio season filming. Perhaps we’ll see her & crew in action in a future Behind the Scenes special….
