The Opie season is winding down for the fleet, but the ice is ramping up on the vessels. Fishing on the Bering Sea is hard enough isn’t it?
The Wizard –
After a bad string, Captain Keith has pulled up stakes and started fishing elsewhere. And it has paid off greatly with some good numbers. Greenhorn Cooper is toiling away trying to impress his crewmates and tells us that this job is not for the weak hearted. Later they have to start breaking away the heavy ice pack. Monte admits that this is the worst part of their job. Cooper doesn’t seem to mind, though. He tells us that he thinks it’s fun. Deckhand Lynn thinks he might be crazy. The tanks are filling quickly and they’re getting close to filling their quota. Greenhorn Lynn is starting to pick on Cooper. This may be because Cooper is doing so well and he’s concerned about how he looks to the crew now. Keith acknowledges that the two men are battling, but tells us that if fists start flying then bags will start packing. He has no tolerance for fighting on the Wizard.
