This past summer in Seattle at Pacific Fishermen Shipyard in Ballard, F/V Summer Bay took a good grip of time getting shipyard work ready to get the snot beat out of her in the unforgiving Bering Sea. In late September Summer Bay zipped from Pacific Fishermen Shipyard to Fishermen’s Terminal to load pots and gear before making the uphill jog to Alaska.
Wild Bill’s son Zack Larson, and now the oldest crew member, expectations as a fisherman are very high; Zack will be on the Summer Bay this next crab season. At 25 years old, Zack reunited with Captain Wild Bill on the Bering Sea in Alaska. Back in 2010, Zack returned to fishing on the F/V Kodiak, one of the boats featured on past seasons of Deadliest Catch. He spent two and a half years aboard the Kodiak. The F/V Kodiak is now owned by a former Kodiak Engineer, she’s spotted often in Seattle’s Ship Canal in the Lower 48, in her off fishing and tender seasons. When Captain “Wild” Bill took the helm of the F/V Cape Caution in 2012, Zack joined his Dad at sea.
Zack Larson and deckhand Nick McGlashan are close friends and both will be on F/V Summer Bay on Deadliest Catch Season 13. Both lead the crabber in seniority on deck. It’s per scuttle but that – ‘Zack has a “teach them and they will learn” approach, and Nick has a ‘they will figure it out approach.’ Not all Bering Sea Crabbers are the best teachers; old school vs. new school is the big what works questions. For most of us who have spent time in Alaskan waters there is great teaching in the ‘school or hard knocks’ that help ya watch your fingers and keeps you on your toes, yep – pain is in your head. No pain no gain at sea!
Captain Josh Harris officially announced that his boat the F/V Cornelia Marie will not be filming for Deadliest Catch Season 13 after appearing in all 12 previous seasons. Harris, emphasizes that the decision to not include the F/V Cornelia Marie next season was entirely that of Discovery and the production company in charge of Deadliest Catch and that it had nothing to do with money. Josh Harris explained family matter to attend to, younger brother Jake Harris was brutally beat up and left for dead on the side of the road and has such be undergoing months of intense recover. Harris explains he had to leave the boat to come home and take care of things.
Captain Josh Harris was quoted in Mid. Oct. 2016 as stating, “To set things straight in regards to the filming of Season 13 of Deadliest Catch. The F/V Cornelia Marie and her crew are making their way out to the fishing grounds today. (Mid. Oct. 2016) We do not have a camera crew aboard this king crab season. This was not our decision, and it was not made by the owners nor the captains of the Cornelia Marie. This was not a dispute over money, this was simply a decision made by production Discovery. They have creative control over pretty much everything that airs on Deadliest Catch, and we respect that”, Harris describes.
Josh Harris also states, “We are fishermen and we will be doing what we love to do this king crab season, but we will be doing it alone. The film crew has been like a family to us, and their absence will weigh heavy in our hearts. It has been a pleasure to take you on my journey as I’ve grown, as a son, a grandson, a brother, a father, and a fisherman and a captain.” God Bless Our Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers and their Families!
