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.

"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.
