TV Picks: Deadliest Catch: Mandy Hansen Joins The Northwestern
“Cornelia Marie Blue”
Opilio season kicks off with the return of the fabled Cornelia Marie. After a 3-year struggle, Josh Harris buys back the boat that helped make his old man a legend. Captain Sig’s daughter, 18-year-old Mandy, arrives to convince her father to take her fishing, and allow her to follow in her family’s legacy.
Mandy takes after her father Sig in more than just one way; she is charismatic, hardworking, and headstrong, which is why she very well could end up working on the Northwestern deck for at least a trip or two. After several summers working on the Northwestern for salmon tendering, Mandy is certain she wants to work on deck as soon as she graduates high school. Sig does not approve of “fisherwomen,” but if she is going out to sea he would rather her fish on his deck where he can keep an eye on her.
Just in time for Father’s Day, Sig’s 18 year old daughter Mandy joins the fleet, and enters one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, the kind of work that makes grown men cry!
