When did Freddy become the perfect example of a fisherman?   Seriously he is a drunk egotistic pyscho.    The less time spent on him the better.

Sooo Harley can make a deal with Sig to find good fishing and that's just fishin'.   Jake does it and he is too stupid to find crab on his own and shouldn't be a captain.   Harley was an idiot to set out on the ice.   If that was such a brilliant idea to find crab everyone would do it.   So now he is stuck and has to beg for help.   Harley adds nothing to this show.    They could have brought the Time Bandit back if they felt they needed another ship.

Sig and Harley actually make good partners.  Both are equal in the arrangement, both are a bit suspicious.  It's a marriage made in heaven.  😉

Freddy has been quiet lately, other than working and getting injured.  Maybe getting drunk and losing his place on the Wizard was a wake up call to him?

I agree with you 100%. The only person who loves seeing himself on camera more than Freddy is Josh Harris.

Though to be honest, seeing Freddy jump on the floating and decomposing carcass of a massive walrus was more entertaining than anything Josh has ever done.

It's kind of hard to top last season's instigating Monte leaving and then taking an ax to the table on the Cornelia Marie.

Oh yeah, forgot about that.  For some reason I'd assigned the axing to Keith in my mind.

Freddy has a serious screw loose.  He seems to be a good worker when he's not inciting a riot or bullying someone.   That's a fairly low bar, however.

Well it was Keith's idea, he marched in there and ordered Freddie to do it like he was some sort of mob boss ordering a hit.  All Keith had to do was call Casey and say hey, you broke my table it's $400 to get a new one and I'm pretty sure that he would have paid for it.  He knew he broke it, I can't see him saying fuck you, it's your problem.  But nope, Keith had to march in and chop shit up to defend his territory.

Another old-school, basic ep.  Good stuff.

We got a fantastic look behind the Disco Wizard's curtain in this one.  As the deal was being considered, we got narratives from both Harley and Sig about why a lot of unearned trust was required.   Sooooo much reluctance.  All of it was legit/earned, too.  

Then, the narrative took a 180.  It was alllll about old salt dogs coming together for mutual benefit.  You'd have thought they were longtime buddies.  Polar opposite edit on the SAME ep!  

Didja see the harvest tote board?  Keith had twice to three times the haul of any other.  He also had the quota to allow this, of course.  But, it is still quite something.  Yes, I realize that count could easily be Disco shenanigans with a false timeline.  But, the point remains that Keith ultimately did bring in sooooo much more when all was said and done.
