    After a long sleepless night of baiting and setting crab pots, the fisherman anxiously await the captain's call to begin fishing. Each captain has a different theory on what is the optimal soak time for maximum crab. The first pot pulled of the season sets the mood. Some boats are on the crab, while others are pulling blanks. The early losers, like the Fierce Allegiance, agonize over strategy hoping to make up for a lost catch. Who's got crab and where are they is the question? Winners, like the Northwestern, try to figure out how to keep the crab coming. But for the Western Viking. Its still not time to fish. The Viking has broken bin boards in the storage tank and this present a dangerous environment for the crabs. It has to be fixed, before they can pull in their first pot. Time spent fixing costs this crew serious money. The greenhorns learn quickly, that there's no sympathy.
