The fleet dealt with a storm. The Time Bandit continued to fish for bairdi with poor results. The Farwest Leader loaded aboard 30 more pots at St. George, departed before the storm hit, and went fishing for bairdi crab. Aboard the Northwestern, the crew thought their luck had changed when they pulled up full pots, but a mechanical problem with the engine forced them to go to St. Paul for repairs. The Stellar Sea was repaired and the Cornelia Marie went out to fish. The Wizard headed to port for repairs after a wave sheared the gears in the transmission of the forward crane.
