Advice for Greenhorns from ‘Deadliest Catch’ Skippers

This is a good one!  For all of you ‘Deadliest Catch’ fans who’ve thought about perhaps becoming a crab fisherman youselves…Here’s a little advise and a few tips from the featured skippers of ‘Deadliest Catch’.  And the ironic part is that it’s so obvious and logical that this is what a greenhorn should do yet time and time again we’ve seen different on the show.  And that’s what makes ‘Deadliest Catch’ so great, it’s a part of real life, and we get to see it all unfold!  The information comes from Discovery’s Deadliest Catch Wiki, check it out some time.  There’s alot of interesting info over there!
