Johnathan Hillstrand Needs Your Help

A while back Johnathan Hillstrand had asked for help for a friend's family, which if you know Johnathan, you know he doesn't usually do this type of thing.

Evidently some sick and twisted fan committed to sending a large amount of money and it was all just a scam to try and meet Johnathan or get close to him. So now weeks have been wasted and this young man and his family still need help.

The scam. If you know this sick woman, please turn her into the police. She needs help.

You can donate to help Thomas Doty and his family by visiting HealThomas. Time is critical for this young man and his family. Please help spread the word.

Deadliest Catch After the Catch Episode 6 Recap

"Looking Ahead"

Mike and all the captains Bill, Sig, Keith, and Andy  are at the table. Mike says he wants to look at what lies ahead because there are going to be a lot of changes on a lot of boats. Captain Bill says he would fire them all every year. Mike, you are really a glass half full kind of guy aren't you. Mike, I don't think you will fire them all. I think you will keep some of them. You had a lot of close calls this year. They go to the clip of Warren Hicks getting hit.with the pot. Captain Bill said the guy wasn't paying attention. It was kind of his fault. Captain Sig asked about the guy on the hydros. Captain Bill said lousy weather. Captain Sig, then it was his fault. You gotta be watching. Captain Bill,

Deadliest Catch Season 8 Episode 16 Recap

"The Bitter, Bloody End"

Wow! You can say that again. I didn't notice the title until now. LOL Very appropriate. What a season finale. I would say they saved all the good stuff for the end but it was really a lot of bad stuff. This season needs to go down in the books as one of the worst ever if not the worst. I'm looking forward to a better season next year.

This episode has a content warning at the beginning that it contains graphic images which some viewers might find disturbing. You know that's not a good sign. I don't remember normally seeing that before anyway.

Deadliest Catch After the Catch Episode 5 Recap

"Fishermen's Code"

At the table Mike Rowe, Andy Hillstrand, Sig Hansen, Edgar Hansen and Keith Colburn. Mike Rowe turns to Sig and says he saw something in his face watching the last episode that makes him wonder if the pucker factor wasn't a little higher than usual. Sig, just a little bit higher. Mike, on a scale of 1-10? Sig, 10, without a question. Captain Keith does an example of a slack tank with a glass, showing how the water sloshes back and forth. Captain Sig explained the series of events that went wrong. The bad weather, the alarm not working. Had Edgar not actually looked in the tank they would have stacked gear over the tank and never knew. There was some kind of air lock problem. They talk about Sig's dad and a boat called the Pacesetter that went down in 1995 because of a slack tank.

Deadliest Catch Season 8 Episode 15 Recap

"Release the Beast"

The full fleet is back on the fishing grounds, in the ice. Elliott thinks the sea is looking like it's going to become unfishable again.

230 to the NW of Dutch Harbor on the Time Bandit. They are getting ready to pull pots set thirty six hours ago. Capt Andy Hillstrand is 40 miles south of St. Paul. He says the ice is way below where they said it would be. How much farther south do I need to go to get away from the ice? Captain Andy is trying to get up to the end of his 25 pot string but he can't because of the ice.

Deadliest Catch After The Catch Episode 4 Recap


Elliott Neese is at the table with Mike Rowe. Great! Rolling eyes and sarcasm. Enough with Elliott already. Mike Rowe tells Elliott he was trying to remember the other captains their first year on the show. Elliott says last year was hard because it was his first year as captain and with cameras in his face. Mike asks what changed? Last year he was telling the cameras a lot to get out of the wheelhouse. What changed? Are you finding your way? Elliott said he got to see the show last year and see what actually comes of all the filming. It's pretty cool to see yourself on TV. Mike says it seems like a new level of personal stuff with you. Why did you let us in? Elliott explains that that's what is going on in his life right now.

Deadliest Catch After The Catch Episode 3

"View From Shore"

At the table are Captains Andy, John, Keith, Sig and Elliott Neese. Johnathan is there with oxygen on. He apparently left the hospital to do the show. His idea. Then he went right back after the show was over. Mike Rowe teases him about the bull they call Snowflake. Johnathan says he had a crushed lung, 4 broken ribs one in three places and a hurt pride. Captain Keith says he shouldn't have hurt pride he got on a bull. Elliott, you cowboy'd up. Mike Rowe, you went almost point eight seconds. Everyone is laughing. Captain Sig  the table saying don't make him laugh. Captain Johnathan says you know what there was no lesson to be learned. Andy laughs. Johnathan says he just cowboy'd up. I find it interesting that we didn't see Captain Andy on a bull, with all the horse back riding he does. Was he smart enough not to do it or did they just not show us?
