Jake Harris gets to run the rail on his 24th birthday during another storm on the Northwestern. The next day he draws galley duty, having to deal with Edgar’s hazing while trying to prepare breakfast. Jake Anderson gets to hook pots on the Cornelia Marie, but loses a bet with Freddy that he can pull 20 pots without missing one. He does well, though, earning the crew’s respect. The Kodiak finds better fishing thanks to a tip from the Hillstrands, but runs out of bait, jeopardizing their season. The Wizard also runs out of bait, but not before the deck crew tries to extend it by recycling, drawing Captain Keith’s ire.
