Sig and Edgar Hansen are at Odds on Season 6, Episode 13 of Deadliest Catch
On the Northwestern, Captain Sig Hansen skippers a boat where one crew member Jake Anderson is still in limbo over his father missing five weeks. Nonetheless, Anderson gets a little dessert for staying sober six months. 72 hours of crab harvesting has bled the Opilio fields dry, and it’s time to take the boat to shore. The skipper thinks that his brother Edgar should train someone to do the engineer’s job, especially since Edgar has talked of quitting over his bad back and being tired of the job. This situation is creating tension between the brothers on Season 6, Episode 13 of Deadliest Catch.
On the Wizard, Captain Keith Colburn heads to where his pots are straight into an ice flow, which takes 15 hours to get out of. The skipper wishes he can kick his tobacco habit through gum chewing, but when he cheats, he has to answer to his daughter, who he calls “bug.” The crew gets to chow down on some hefty vittles in the meantime, then take out a lot of Opilio crab. This makes the skipper decide on Deadliest Catch, Season 6, Episode 13 to re-drop the pots in the same spot again near the ice.
On the Kodiak, Captain “Wild Bill” Wichrowski sees his crab pots full for a change, 500-plus counts to begin with. But then the pots start coming up petty lame, due to improperly rigged crab pots, where the Opilios have fed from them and then escaped. “Wild Bill” has had enough, and someone is getting a pink slip after the boat gets to shore.

The Time Bandit crew has to focus on lifting crab pots initially in -15 degree weather that drops to -30. Since the boat isn’t filling up with Opilio crab, the fishing must continue in terrible conditions, where throwing the buoys is even harder. Mike Fourtner struggles on deck, and is losing respect amongst the other crew members.
Captain Phil Harris is in ICU in Anchorage. His brian has swelled up after a bad stroke and a 12 hour brain surgery. Jake, Josh and Captain Johnathan Hillstrand get an explanation of the skipper’s prognosis. 28 hours after the surgery, the skipper is showing signs of improving and the hopes are raised among his loved ones on Season 6, Episode 13 of Deadliest Catch.

As time passes, things get more stressful on the brothers, thinking their father will be in the hospital for 8 months. Josh blasts Jake for being irresponsible and an addict via a serious argument. When Hillstrand hears it, it sickens him.
