The premiere episode of season 8 marks the 100th episode of Deadliest Catch. The show is also special in that it marks the first episode in 7 seasons that the FV Cornelia Marie is not involved.
Why isn’t the Cornelia Marie on season 8 of the Deadliest Catch? The simple, obvious reason is that the CM didn’t go fishing during these crab seasons. The reason for that is more complicated but was mainly due to the boat needing repairs.
Jake, Josh and Freddie are still on the show. Josh Harris fished as a deckhand on the FV Time Bandit. Jake Harris fished as a deckhand on the FV Northwestern. Freddie fished his second season as a deckhand on the FV Wizard. For current updates, visit our facebook page.
