BLUE LOU LOGAN: THE ROGUE'S CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT
Friday, April 15, 2011
North of Dutch Harbor...
--Captain Johnathan Hillstrand of the F/V Time Bandit.
This pretty much sets the tone for the new season of "Deadlest Catch." After only a quick nod to Captain Phil Harris, we're right into the king crab season...and it's war. Bad weather, bad fishing, bad relations between crew and Captain (aboard the Cornelia Marie, natch), and bad luck: Viewers get another gripping Coast Guard helicopter rescue after a crewman on the cargo ship Ever Unique breaks his neck.
There are also two new boats, the Seabrooke and the Ramblin' Rose. The Seabrooke interests me the most, with its young skipper--Capt. Scott Campbell is only 36 but has already run the boat for 10 years!--and new-breed attitude. I was also surprised to find that Native American deckhand Mac White is not Aleut but Dineh!
So, luckily, Fred Meyer has Rogue's Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale on sale again. Pour one, sit back, and watch the most insane mariners ever do battle...at sea and with the sea.
