Giving the Finger: Risking It All to Fish the Worlds Deadliest Sea by Scott Campbell Jr.Part documentary, part reality-television, the story of the Deadliest Catch’s Alaskan crab fishermen risking their lives in the Bering Sea to make a buck and feed their families has captivated the world. Giving the Finger follows the life of the spirited young captain who has emerged as one of the most talked-about figures on the show, Scott Campbell Jr., who leads the crew of the Seabrooke. As this book--a prequel to Junior’s ascent to fame--shows, the trials of crabbing are not limited to living at sea and working the most dangerous job on the planet, but carry over to family and friends, and are usually stormier than the Bering. Junior began his life as a fisherman in the shadow of his father, Scott Campbell Sr., and has struggled consistently to gain his own reputation as a captain. Arguably, one of the best fishermen working the waters today, Campbell Jr. has certainly done that, but not without sacrifice, of all sorts. Campbell has divorced and re-married the same woman three times, endured handicapping injuries and lost crew members to the icy waters of the north. Giving the Finger gives a first person account of these losses and the everyday fight for life and love, and shows that by hard work and perseverance, even a kid from Walla Walla, Washington, can become a star.

Deadliest Catch is a documentary television series produced by Original Productions for the Discovery Channel.

From 'Deadliest Catch' to coolers: Former crabber now an entrepreneur in Nampa
Read an excerpt, about his early years fishing for crab in Kodiak, Alaska, below. Nobody had a lot of money. Life was tough, especially in the winter, and we had some really lean times. We did what we had to do to survive. If Alaska in the s was another world, Kodiak Island was a whole other galaxy. Not only were we far away from the rest of the world, we were cut off from it, too.
The Deadliest Catch Season 15 will most likely start sometime in April on Discovery, although the crab fishing season has already begun. After fifteen seasons, the crab fishing reality show about the deadliest job in the world has seen a lot of captains and crew members coming in and out. Over the years, there have been some favorites that are not currently on the show. Where are the former Deadliest Catch stars now? Sadly, the Time Bandit had a devastating repair that meant it could not go out for King Crab this season. What about Andy Hillstrand? Johnathan has stated many times that Captain Andy is on land dealing with operations, although he will take out the Time Bandit for a few runs.
