Capt. Keith Colburn says Intense Weather and Extreme Drama coming up in season 4!

In an interview from his home, Capt. Keith Colburn of the F/V Wizard stated that we can count on seeing alot more of the F/V Wizard in action in season 4 of “Deadliest Catch”.  And while he wasn’t able to tell us all the details of what’s in store for “Deadliest Catch” fans because of contractual obligations, he did say there would be plenty of turbulent seas, arctic temperatures, mad winds,  sleep deprived deckhands, the always volatile personality clashes…you know, all the elements us fans live for!   Good interview….

Keith Colburn and the crew of his crabbing boat, the Wizard, will play a prominent role this year on the Discovery Channel series “Deadliest Catch,” when the reality TV show’s fourth season starts on Tuesday, April 15, the veteran captain told the Valley Record in an interview at his Ames Lake home.
“There’ll be a lot more Wizard on the show this year, from the beginning all the way through the season,” said Colburn, who coaches Fall City Little League when he’s not battling the elements in the Bering Sea or signing autographs at promotional and charity events for the TV show.
While contract obligations with Discovery forced Colburn to be a bit tight-lipped about what viewers might see in the Wizard’s second season on the show, he did say that extreme weather made for intense drama.
“This year was probably one of the worst I’ve seen for weather in the last 15 years,” he said. “We had severe ice conditions.”

The crewmen did their best to quickly haul heavy crab pots while dealing with subzero arctic temperatures, 60-mph winds, turbulent seas with waves the size of four-story buildings, sleep deprivation, and the personality clashes that are inevitable when people live and work together.
Cameras captured the good, the bad and the ugly.

A humbling experience
“You’re operating on three hours’ sleep for a week straight; you don’t look good. It’s a humbling experience seeing yourself on TV. I like to watch my guys, but I’m not too interested in watching myself because I look like heck all the time,” Colburn said.
The captain was the picture of politeness in his interview with the Valley Record, but that’s not the case when he’s at sea.
“I’m like Jekyll and Hyde. Once I’m on the boat, I’m a pretty intense person,” he said. “My vocabulary slips down to about nine words, and four of them aren’t very nice. They’ll be working overtime with editing this year.”
Having a production crew on board was both rewarding and frustrating for Colburn.

    Captain Keith,
    I watch your show every week and I love it but I must send you a comment about the way you treat your brother Monte. I have never heard you say one good thing to him and when you yelled “I hate you” it made me sick. He is a valued member of your crew and you should respect him and treat him with dignity. What would you do without him? Please think about it and try and do better. You are acting like a spoiled child throwing a temper tantrum when things get tough. Your behavior will cause you to lose respect from your men and the rest of us.
    Praying for you all,
