Fishermen’s Memorial, Seattle, Washington

After blogging about ‘Deadliest Catch’ for the last few year, ‘Deadliest Reports finally went on the road and headed west to where so many of the fishermen we’ve come to know, seem to hail from–Seattle, Washington.

July & August aren’t only the ‘dog days’ of summer in the U.S., they also happen to be the months that Sea Fair takes place, in Seattle that is…And there was plenty of ‘Deadliest’ action that took place there in the last couple of weeks!  But more on that later…

Are you familiar with the Fishermen’s Memorial that’s located at Fishermen’s Terminal?  As you can imagine, the memorial holds a special meaning to fishermen and their families as it’s a tribute to those who’ve been lost.  The Fishermen’s Memorial website explains it very well.  And even though so many of us ‘Deadliest Catch’ fans aren’t fishermen who risk their lives on a daily basis, we can none the less appreciate something that is very near and dear to the fishermen we so admire…
