    The fleet suffered the loss of a and one of its men. You'll have a mother that's lost a son to the ocean. But now it's on the Bering Sea, and the men have set out once again, this time to fish for Opilio crab. While King crab season was a dangerous for glory. Opilio season is a marathon of pain. Longer, colder and . With the risks come big rewards. The chance of $30000 in only two weeks. Money, money. That's good. But the Bering Sea won't give up her riches without a fight.

Our partner boat, is getting great crab up the hill. We are gonna head up that way.

That was the last pot. Mission accomplished. The is in the water. We're gonna be rich in three weeks. Hopefully. Ole's plan was to let them for over 12 hours, a lifetime in crab fishing. I don't think we're that energetic anymore to pull on a short soak. Let it soak. If you've it up good, the crab will come to you. No one knows where the large schools of Opilio crab will be this year. And Ole only has seven days to figure it out.
