This for Deadliest catch fans on the forum
The band’s back together on the F/V Northwestern on Discovery’s reality hit “Deadliest Catch,” currently airing its 11th season on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET. After an ultimately unsuccessful sojourn on the F/V Kiska Sea last year, deckhand Jake Anderson is back on the boat where he was a greenhorn, under his mentor, Capt. Sig Hansen.
Although the show is only a couple of weeks into the new season, the actual fishing season has been over for months, and now the Bering Sea crab fleet is deployed across the U.S., doing publicity for the show.

“I just watch what he does,” said Anderson, “and I just do that. Whatever that is, that’s that I do, that’s what I take from it. Don’t cheat on your wife, that’s number one.”
“That’s the big one,” said Hansen. “I’ve been pretty loyal, and we’ve had a lot of opportunities, you know what I mean? So, I feel pretty good about that. We did that tour for the fans, we’ll do meet-and-greets at casinos and stuff, and there’s always some tenacious person out there who’ll say something crazy, but … it’s
