The Cornelia Marie sees better fishing after a good-luck ritual by Samoan deckhand Freddy. The greenhorn on the Wizard, Joel Zeilie, is having physical difficulties going through the long grind of crab fishing. The Time Bandit heads to their Slime Banks fishing ground for the third time in as many seasons, and hit paydirt again in the face of superstition. Bad fishing and near-fatal rookie mistakes among the inexperienced crew of the Kodiak strain Captain Bill’s nerves, eventually leading him to blow up at deck boss Adam. Captain Sig and his brother, deck boss Edgar, get into a conflict over how to run the deck.
