Watched Deadliest Catch tonight. What a difference a few great decisions make. I said in an earlier Deadliest Catch post Scott Campbell Jr. only cared about catching crab, versus the welfare of his crew. Then again, he got his boat in trouble by ignoring the obvious and staying out too long.
Turns out Scott Campbell Jr is a smart one. He makes his crew grind, but he knows the business, the ins and outs of crabbing and he ultimately does care about his guys.
Watching him pick out the right spots for crab, staying out while the ice pack forced most of the fleet to Dutch Harbor and showing the crew how to run the deck more efficiently…the guy knows what he’s doing.
Elliott Neese, however…he’s got some serious issues to deal with.
