Deadliest Catch: Bloodline S1E1 Script

The Harris Legacy (2020)

THIS IS AN OLD CHART.

THAT'S 1983. THAT WAS THE YEAR I WAS BORN.

AND THERE'S A LOT OF NOTES.

AND I DEFINITELY KNOW IT'S MY DAD'S.

I'M NOT QUITE SURE WHAT THE OLD MAN WAS UP TO, BUT HE DEFINITELY HAD SOMETHING IN THE WORKS WITH THIS ONE.

WE'RE GOING TO BE HERE. WE GOT A JOB TO DO.

LET'S GO DO IT.

Josh: MY DAD WAS CAPTAIN PHIL HARRIS...

I LOVE YOU TOO. GET THE HELL OUT OF MY WHEELHOUSE.

...A.K.A. THE BADASS.

I'M A SWEETHEART.

AND HE LEFT ME WITH A NAME.

WHOO! YEAH, BABY!

YEAH! YEAH!

BOOM!

FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS, I'VE TRIED TO LIVE UP TO IT.

I KEEP LOOKING AT THAT PICTURE, AND HE'D PROBABLY BE LIKE, "WAY TO GO, KID."

NOW I'VE GOT THE CHANCE TO FORGE MY OWN WAY, UNRAVELING A MYSTERY THAT MY DAD LEFT BEHIND ON THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII.

HERE WE GO. YEAH. BUDDY.

WHOO! YEAH!

IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR DAD EXPERIMENTED WITH THE MOST PRODUCTIVE FISHING DEPTHS AROUND THE ENTIRE ISLAND.

WHOA!

JUST WENT SHOOTING BY THE BOAT, HAULING ASS, BIG ONE.

Josh: I FOUND THESE CHARTS COVERED IN NOTES HE MADE YEARS AGO.

WHOA! AND THEY MIGHT BE A KEY.

ONE FISH -- 2 GRAND.

YEAH!

WAS HE TRYING TO BREAK INTO THIS MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR FISHERY?

AHI, MOONFISH, BARRACUDA, SWORDFISH.

OH!

OH,.

Josh: IF I FIGURE THIS OUT... WHOO!

...IT MIGHT LEAD INTO A WHOLE NEW BUSINESS...

OH, YEAH. THAT'S GOOD, MAN. GORGEOUS STUFF.

...AND A CHANCE TO TURN HIS DREAMS INTO MY LEGACY.

YEAH!

WHOO! YEAH!

THERE YOU GO, DAD. THERE YOU GO.

CAPTIONS PAID FOR BY DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS WELL...

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FISHERMAN'S STORY AND A FAIRY TALE IS, A FAIRY TALE STARTS OUT

"ONCE UPON A TIME."

A FISHERMAN'S STORY STARTS OUT, "THIS ISN'T NO BULL ."

Josh: THIS IS NO BULL.

IT ALL BEGAN LAST SUMMER WITH A DISCOVERY.

OVERHEAD!

SAFETY GLASSES.

MY BUSINESS PARTNER, CASEY McMANUS, AND I, WE'RE REMODELING THE CORNELIA MARIE.

WHEN WE WERE DIGGING APART THE OLD MAN'S ROOM, WE FOUND A COMPARTMENT FULL OF CHARTS, ALL SORTS OF CHARTS.

I WOULD THINK THESE CHARTS WOULD ONLY BE FOR THE BERING SEA, BUT WRONG. THEY'RE FROM HAWAII.

THEY FISHED FIRST IN HERE.

HANG ON. HERE'S A KEY RIGHT HERE.

CAUGHT FISH IS A STAR. PLUS IS PRODUCTIVE SPOT.

YOU KNOW, THE KONA COAST IS SUPPOSED TO BE ONE OF THE PREMIER FISHING AREAS IN THE WORLD.

THIS IS THE SPOT.

Josh: WHEN YOU LOOK AT ALL THESE NOTES THAT HE MADE, THAT'S DEFINITELY MORE THAN A WEEKEND TRIP TO HAWAII.

THERE WAS A LOT OF INFORMATION THERE.

"HEAR THIS SIDE OF THE ISLAND IS VERY PRODUCTIVE."

Casey: PHIL ALWAYS HAD AN ALTERNATIVE ANGLE.

HE WAS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A DIFFERENT WAY TO MAKE A BUCK.

I THINK THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE THERE THAT NOBODY ELSE KNOWS ABOUT.

"LOTS OF BARS." "LOTS OF GOOD BARS."

YEAH, "LOTS OF GOOD BARS."

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR DAD WAS DOING OVER THERE, BUT HE WAS ON THE RIGHT TRACK, FOR SURE.

Josh: WE'VE GOT A LOT OF PICTURES THAT BELONG TO THE OLD MAN THAT MEAN A LOT TO ME.

THESE CHARTS, THEY'RE DIFFERENT.

I FEEL LIKE I'VE DISCOVERED A WHOLE 'NOTHER CHAPTER OF HIS LIFE.

I REALLY WANT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE OLD MAN HAD PLANNED HERE, MAN.

DUDE, I DO TOO. I DO TOO.

I THINK WE SHOULD GO CHECK THIS OUT.

YOU KNOW, MY DAD HAD A JUST VERY TIGHT-KNIT GROUP OF FRIENDS.

I GOT TO TALK TO THESE GUYS ABOUT THESE CHARTS AND SEE WHAT MY DAD MAY HAVE BEEN UP TO.

I SAW THE VETTE IN THE DRIVEWAY.

IS THAT THING UP AND RUNNING OR WHAT?

OH, YEAH, JUST GOT OUT OF THE SHOP THIS MORNING.

YOU WANT TO GO FOR A SPIN?

YOU KNOW, KIND OF A LITTLE NERVOUS ABOUT THIS.

IT'LL BE FINE.

I NEVER LET ANYONE DRIVE THIS CAR.

IT'LL BE FINE.

WELL, IF WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A JOURNEY INTO THE OLD MAN'S PAST, WE MIGHT AS WELL TAKE HIS RIDE.

HOW DO YOU OPEN THIS THING? SQUEEZE IT.

SQUEEZE.

NO, SQUEEZE. SQUEEZE. OH.

IT'S A 2008 1/2 MARIO ANDRETTI SERIES CORVETTE.

I MEAN, HE LOVED THAT RIDE.

THIS THING -- THIS THING IS A NICE CAR.

IT'S PROBABLY THE NICEST CAR I'VE EVER OWNED, AND I'VE HAD SEVEN CORVETTES.

I JUST FIGURED IF I WAS GOING TO KICK THE BUCKET, I MIGHT AS WELL HAVE A CAR THAT I LIKE, YOU KNOW, AND THEY CAN'T BURY ME IN IT, ALTHOUGH IT WOULDN'T BE A BAD DEAL.

LIKE, JUST, YOU KNOW, BE GENTLE WITH IT.

DON'T GO TOO CRAZY.

WATCH THE CAR BEHIND US.

ALL RIGHT! HEY, HEY, HEY!

OKAY! ALL RIGHT!

OH, OH, OH!

OH, YEAH! ALL RIGHT --

YOUR OLD MAN WAS CRAZY!

THIS THING'S AWESOME!

OH, GOD. WHOO-HOO-HOO-HOO!

UGH.

Josh: I REALLY HAVE TO KNOW WHAT MY DAD WAS UP TO.

I'VE GOT TO FIND OUT MORE. IT'S JUST TICKING IN MY HEAD.

THERE'S ONLY A COUPLE PEOPLE THAT WOULD HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THIS, AND SIG HANSEN, I THINK, IS GOING TO BE NUMBER ONE.

Sig: AND THIS WAS UNDER HIS BUNK?

YEAH. WE TOOK THE MATTRESS FULLY OFF.

YEAH?

THIS IS THE BIG ISLAND RIGHT HERE, AND THIS ONE HAD THE MOST WRITING ON IT.

OH, YEAH! BAM, BABY!

Josh: SIG AND MY DAD, THEY FISHED TOGETHER FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.

THEY ALWAYS WOULD TALK, YOU KNOW, AND EXCHANGE INFORMATION.

WELL, THIS THING IS LIKE A TREASURE MAP.

I MEAN, IT'S PRETTY INTERESTING.

CODFISH -- STAR.

SO HE'S GOT A LOT OF STARS INSIDE THE 3-MILE --

THIS IS A 3-MILE ZONE HERE.YEAH.

Casey: 'SUP, DAD?

HEY. HOW YOU DOING? I'M GOOD.

Josh: CASEY'S DAD, JIMMY McMANUS, HE'S A TITAN OF THE BERING SEA, ONE OF THE PIONEERS OF HELPING SHAPE THE ALASKAN FISHING INDUSTRY.

I FEEL LIKE IF ANYONE IS GOING TO TELL ME A NO-BULL-

ANSWER, IT'S PROBABLY GOING TO BE THAT GUY.

THESE CHARTS, I MEAN, HE'S GOT MARKINGS ALL OVER THEM.

SOUNDS LIKE AN ADVENTURE.

MR. HARRIS.

MR. HILLSTRAND. GOOD TO SEE YOU, BROTHER.

JOHN HILLSTRAND AND PHIL HARRIS...

GOOD TO SEE YOU, MAN. YOU LOOK GOOD.

YOU LOOK GOOD, BROTHER.CUT FROM THE SAME CLOTH.

OWNED AND OPERATED THE TIME BANDIT.

-OH, YEAH! YEAH!

Casey: WHOA!

Josh: HARD-CORE BADASS FISHERMAN.

OKAY. I THINK I WON.

OKAY. NEXT.

I GOT A LOT OF RESPECT FOR HIM.

DO YOU KNOW IF MY DAD HAD ANY PLANS ABOUT GOING TO HAWAII AND FISHING?

I WAS THINKING ABOUT THAT.

EVERYONE THINKS ABOUT STUFF LIKE THAT.

YOU CATCH A $30,000 TUNA OVER THERE, GOOD MONEY.

RIGHT.

WHAT GUY WOULDN'T WANT TO DO THAT?

YOU KNOW, I GOT TO TELL YOU, BACK IN THE '80s AND '90s, ESPECIALLY AFTER 1980 WHEN WE HAD THE COLLAPSE OF KING CRAB, A LOT OF THE PIONEERS THAT DEVELOPED THE ALASKA CRAB FISHERY, HAWAII WAS ON THEIR RADAR JUST TO HAVE THAT ACE IN THE HOLE, YOU KNOW, THAT ACE UP YOUR SLEEVE.

SOMETIMES, THIS FISHERY'S GOOD, THAT ONE'S BAD, AND THAT'S PROBABLY WHY YOUR DAD WAS OVER THERE, AND, YOU KNOW, I WAS LOOKING IN THE FISHERMAN'S JOURNAL.

I FLEW TO BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, BECAUSE WE DIDN'T FISH KING CRAB.

THINK MAYBE HE WENT WEST, AND YOU WENT EAST?

1983, THERE WAS A BIG KING CRAB CRASH, DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT.

LOT OF GUYS WERE OUTREACHING, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE NEXT MILLION-DOLLAR MOVE, AND DURING THE DATES WE LOOKED ON THE CHARTS, MY DAD WAS OUTREACHING TO HAWAII, AND A COUPLE OTHER GUYS WERE DOING THE SAME THING.

WELL, I THINK THE MARKET IS HUNGRY RIGHT NOW FOR FRESH AHI.

THERE COULD BE A LOT OF MONEY BEING MADE UP THERE.

WE'RE THINKING ABOUT RUNNING OVER THERE.

YOU'RE THINKING ON DOING IT? YEAH.

WELL, WE, WE, THE ROYAL WE.OH?

TWO OF US. THERE'S TWO --OH, WAIT A MINUTE.

TWO NUTS IN EVERY PEANUT.

WHAT'S YOUR POINT IN ALL THIS?

WELL, YOU KNOW, I WANT TO GO OVER THERE AND SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE POSSIBLY JUST TO SEE WHAT THE WHOLE INDUSTRY IS ABOUT TO BEGIN WITH AND SEE IF THERE IS A POSSIBILITY YOU COULD DO IT COMMERCIAL.

THIS IS 2,500 MILES FROM HERE, TOTALLY DIFFERENT SITUATION.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO FISH?

WELL, WE'RE JUST GOING TO GO BY THE MARKS.

HOW DID WE KNOW WHERE WE'RE GOING TO FISH WHEN WE STARTED WITH THE CORNELIA MARIE?

WE KIND OF KNEW. WE KIND OF WENT OUT THAT WAY.

WELL --

WE KNOW THEY'RE NOT ON THE BEACH, AND WE KNOW THEY DON'T JUMP ON THE BOAT.

IT'S ALSO HAWAII.

I MEAN, HOW BAD COULD THE WEATHER BE, RIGHT?

WHAT'S THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN?

SHARKS. IF YOU FALL IN THERE, MAN, SHARKS.

SHARKS ARE GOING TO GET YOU?

OH, YEAH. OH, YEAH, DUDE.

YOU'VE ALREADY ESTABLISHED YOURSELF ON THE CORNELIA.

YOU FOLLOWED YOUR FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS.

YOU'VE DONE A GREAT JOB, BY THE WAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.I'M PROUD OF YOU.

ALL I'M SAYING IS IF YOU'RE GOING TO INVEST MONEY IN THIS, YOU'D BETTER KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU'RE DOING.

THIS IS NOT JUST SNAP YOUR FINGER AND GO OUT THERE AND CATCH A BUNCH OF FISH.

WELL, YOU KNOW, YOUR DAD USED TO HAVE THAT SAYING, "THERE'S THREE TYPES OF PEOPLE --

PEOPLE THAT WATCH WHAT'S HAPPENING, PEOPLE THAT MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, AND PEOPLE THAT WONDER WHAT THE JUST HAPPENED.

AND DON'T BE THE THIRD PERSON."

GOD BLESS YOU, MAN. I'M ALL BEHIND YOU.

Jim: TEN AND A HALF YEARS AGO, ME AND YOUR DAD HAD A CONVERSATION ACROSS THE CANAL HERE.

HE ASKED ME TO WATCH OUT FOR YOU.

YOUR TIME HERE, WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO INVEST AND WHAT YOU AND CASEY ARE GOING TO DO IN HAWAII IS WHAT I FEEL WHAT HE WAS ASKING FOR.

I HAVE A LOT OF SUPPORT FOR YOU GUYS.

YOU'VE PROVEN IT IN YOUR OTHER VENTURES TOGETHER.

MAKE IT WORK.

IF IT'S YOUR DAD'S DREAM, HE HAD AN IDEA.

HE HAD AN OBJECTIVE.

YOU GUYS SET THAT GOAL AND REACH IT.

GO GET THEM, KID.

OKAY. THANKS, SIG.

I LOVE THIS. IT'S AWESOME.

Josh: MY DAD HAD A LIFE CUT SHORT WHEN IT CAME TO THIS OPPORTUNITY.

I'M HERE NOW.

I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO MAKE MY DAD PROUD, MAN, AND I ALWAYS WANT TO DO RIGHT BY OUR FAMILY NAME.

YOU KNOW, IT'S TOUGH.

WHAT'S GOING ON THERE, OLD MAN?

SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU EXACTLY HAD GOING ON, BUT I'M MAKING AN ATTEMPT TO GO AND START OR FINISH WHAT YOU HAD INTENDED.

HOPEFULLY, YOU'LL WATCH OVER US THERE TOO.

Phil: YOU'RE PLENTY CAPABLE.

IT'S SOMETHING YOU GOT TO WANT.

DO WHAT IT TAKES.

Casey: COME ON, GUYS.

GET IN THE RIG. WE'RE LEAVING.

OUR BIG ADVENTURE, HERE WE GO.

PRAY FOR US.

Casey: ALL RIGHT. LET'S GET OUT OF HERE.

SQUIRT YOUR STEAM, BUDDY. HEY. BE GOOD.

BYE. WHAT?

HE DON'T EVEN CARE I'M LEAVING.

I'M GOING FOR A MONTH, MAN, MAYBE TWO.

WE'RE GOING TO HAWAII.

I AM SCARED TO THE DICKENS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT GAMBLING ON THIS.

GOING TO A NEW BUSINESS AND NOT REALLY KNOWING WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND HOPING IT ALL WORKS OUT IS SCARY.

STILL GOT TO FIGURE OUT A BOAT.

GOT TO GET FISHING POLES, REELS.

AND...

INSURANCE. IS THAT A BIG DEAL?

YEAH, LET'S GET INSURANCE.

BYE, DAD.

BYE, GUYS.ALL RIGHT, BUDDY.

REMEMBER, IF YOU DON'T DO GOOD IN SCHOOL, I'M GOING TO COME VISIT YOU.

YOU DON'T WANT ME TO VISIT YOU IN CLASS.

BYE. BE GOOD.

Casey: I GOT MY HAWAIIAN CRAB SHIRT ON FOR GOOD LUCK.

Josh: MY NERVES ARE RIDING TOO DEEP.

I CAN'T EVEN TALK RIGHT NOW.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT I KNOW WHEN WE GET THERE, WE'LL FIGURE IT OUT, JUST LIKE ON THE BOAT IN ALASKA.

I'M STOKED FOR YOU. I'M FIRED UP FOR YOU.

THANKS, MAN. I JUST WANT TO MAKE MY DAD PROUD.

Man: WE'LL BE COMING THROUGH, PICKING UP ALL REMAINING SERVICE ITEMS.

MAKE SURE YOUR SEAT BELTS ARE FASTENED.

Josh: MY DAD, HE WASN'T SCARED TO TAKE CHANCES AT ALL.

Phil: WE'RE FISHING IN THE DANGER ZONE, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?

IF YOU WANT GOOD NUMBERS, SOMETIMES THAT'S WHAT YOU GOT TO DO.

COME UP! YEAH!

Josh: AS FAR AS HE WAS CONCERNED, THE BIGGER THE RISK, THE BIGGER THE REWARD.

YEAH!

AND THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSONS I'VE GOT FROM HIM.

GO OUT THERE, TAKE BIG SWINGS, AND DON'T BE AFRAID.


I'M ALREADY SWEATING ALL THE WAY DOWN TO MY ANKLES.

THEY SAY FISHING IN WARM WEATHER IS SUPPOSED TO BE COOL.

DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE STICKING TO YOUR LEG?

OH. BAD IDEA.

I ALMOST GOT HIT BY A MINI TRUCK.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Casey: WE'RE FINALLY HERE. WE'RE FINALLY DOING THIS.

JOSH AND I ARE HERE IN HAWAII TO DIG A LITTLE DEEPER INTO THESE CHARTS THAT WE FOUND.

NOBODY KNOWS WHAT PHIL'S PLAN REALLY WAS, BUT I THINK THERE'S POTENTIAL HERE IN THIS MARKET.

WHAT IS A LIST OF STUFF WE NEED?

GOT OUR LICENSES HANDLED ALREADY.

WE'RE GOING TO NEED SOME BAIT, AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO NEED SOME SPECIAL SABIKI RIGS TO TRY TO CATCH LIVE BAIT.

SAB-WHO? SABIKI.

SABIKI? WHAT IS A SABIKI? THE LITTLE...

I AM THE SAME AGE RIGHT NOW AS THE OLD MAN WAS WHEN HE WAS PROBABLY MAKING THESE CHARTS.

TO ME, IT'S NOT ONLY A BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY, BUT A CHANCE TO FOLLOW THE OLD MAN'S FOOTSTEPS.

WHERE IS THIS PLACE?

RIGHT HERE. THIS IS THE STREET.

IT'S IN THIS PLACE HERE.OH, OKAY.

Casey: YOU KNOW, I DIDN'T WANT TO WASTE A BUNCH OF TIME GETTING OVER HERE.

I WANT TO GET THINGS DONE AHEAD OF TIME, SO I MADE A LITTLE INVESTMENT.

SEE THAT NICE BIG WHITE ONE UP THERE?

IS IT LIKE THAT? IS IT THAT BIG?

I MEAN, THAT'D BE COOL.

NO, NO, I THINK IT'S THE ONE THAT'S, LIKE, THREE PAST THAT BACK IN THE CORNER.

SEE A FOR-SALE SIGN? OH, COME ON.

THIS IS WHAT 20 GRAND GETS YOU OUT HERE?

IN SEATTLE, THIS WOULD BE, LIKE, 3 GRAND.

THE THING'S THE SIZE OF A DINGHY FOR OUR BOAT.

SEE ALL THESE NICE, BEAUTIFUL BOATS.

THEN I SEE ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE SHOULD'VE BEEN SANK.

THAT'S OUR BOAT.

IT'S GOT A PLANT GROWING OUT OF THE BOW, MAN.

WE CAN MAKE THIS WORK, DUDE. WE WORKED WITH WORSE.

REMEMBER HOW THE CORNELIA WAS WHEN WE GOT AHOLD OF IT?

IT'S NOT EXACTLY LIKE THAT WAS THE PRIDE OF THE FAMILY EITHER.

THAT THING WAS BEAT TO HELL.

WE CAME OVER HERE TO HAWAII TO LEARN.

WE DIDN'T COME OVER TO BUY A LAMBORGHINI TO GO FISHING WITH.

WE BOUGHT A BOAT FOR 20 GRAND, $4,000 WORTH OF FISHING GEAR, FUEL, TRAVEL, PLACE TO STAY, FOOD.

$40,000 INTO THIS, AND WE STILL HAVEN'T CAUGHT A FISH.

THE REASON WHY JOSH AND I HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL TOGETHER IN THE PAST IS BECAUSE HE'S THE DREAMER.

YOU KNOW, HE'S ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT DIFFERENT THINGS, AND HE'S GOING AFTER SOME OF HIS DAD'S DREAMS, WHEREAS I STAY GROUNDED, AND I TRY TO THINK ABOUT THINGS A LITTLE BIT MORE LOGICALLY.

I TRY TO PUT THE BUSINESS SIDE OF IT TOGETHER.

OKAY.ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT.

WE'LL FIGURE IT OUT, DUDE.

WELL, IT CAN'T BE THAT HARD.

YOU WOULD THINK SO.

DUDE, THERE'S FISH OUT HERE I CAN'T PRONOUNCE, SO, I MEAN, COME ON.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE HAWAIIAN STATE FISH IS?

NO.

HUMUHUMUNUKUNUKUAPUA'A.

OKAY. I CAN BARELY PRONOUNCE --

I READ ABOUT THAT ON THE AIRPLANE.

I CAN BARELY PRONOUNCE --

LIKE, I MEAN, SALMON IS A BIG WORD FOR ME.

I'M AN ALASKAN FISHERMAN.

IT'S SALMON. WHATEVER.

THE L IS SILENT.YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

YEAH, OKAY.

Casey: IT'S A LITTLE UNNERVING TO COME TO HAWAII AND TRY TO DO THIS WITHOUT HAVING ANY HISTORY HERE.

WHEN YOU COME FROM SOMETHING THAT YOU KNOW SO WELL TO GO TO SOMETHING THAT YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT, YOUR CHANCES OF FAILURE ARE BIG.

I THINK THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET THINGS ACCOMPLISHED AND FIGURE OUT THE FISHERY OVER HERE --

GET LOCAL KNOWLEDGE.

Man: BEAUTIFUL JOB.

LET'S GO CHECK THIS OUT, MAN.

THAT'S IT. THE AUCTION'S STARTED.

WOW.

WE'RE AT THE FISH AUCTION RIGHT NOW, AND WE'RE SEEING WHAT MY DAD PROBABLY SAW BEFORE MY TIME.

THEY HAVE ALL THESE TUNA, AHI, SWORDFISH.

ONO. ONO.

SAILFISH. SAILFISH.

I MEAN, LOOK AT ALL OF THESE FISH.

THAT'S YELLOWFIN DOWN THERE.

LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THIS GUY.

I NEVER SEEN NO LIKE THIS.

A HUNDRED-POUND FISH.

RIGHT, 104-POUNDER.

Casey: AFTER TALKING WITH SOME OF THE LOCAL FISHERMEN, WE'VE KIND OF FIGURED OUT THEY SELL TO GROCERY STORES.

THEY SELL DIRECTLY TO RESTAURANTS.

RED.

HAWAII IS THE ONLY STATE WHERE YOU CAN SELL AS A FISHERMAN STRAIGHT TO A RESTAURANT.

WHAT'S THE MOST EXPENSIVE FISH IN THIS HOUSE? AHI?

THE FISH I REALLY WANT TO CATCH THE MOST IS AN AHI TUNA.

THEY'RE WORTH THE MOST OUT OF THE WHOLE SHEBANG OF FISH OUT THERE IN THIS REGION.

THIS IS A 138-POUND FISH, DAMN NEAR 2 GRAND.

GUTTED, GILLED, TAIL OFF, 2 GRAND?

YEP.

THIS ONE'S EVEN MORE.

Casey: SOME OF THESE SMALLER BOATS, IF A GUY REALLY KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING, SOME OF THESE LOCAL GUYS CAN TURN UPWARDS AT $10,000, $12,000 DAYS.

THIS IS WHAT WE CAN GO CATCH?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? AH!

BOOM!

THE OLD MAN WAS ON TO SOMETHING.

Casey: I'M VERY SURE THAT WE WILL GET THERE, BUT WE HAVE A LOT TO FIGURE OUT --

FIRST OFF BEING FIGURING OUT HOW TO CATCH A FISH.

YOU GET OUT HERE, MAYBE LOOK AT ONE OR TWO MARKS.

WE'RE GOING TO FISH, GOING TO FISH HARD.

IF HE WAS OUT HERE EXPLORING MY OCEANS, I'D WANT TO KNOW WHAT HE WAS UP TO.

YEAH! GOT SOME!

FISH ON, MAN.

WE'RE ONLY GOING TO GET ONE SHOT.

HOLY. WHOA!

A SARDINE.

WELL, HELLO.

Josh: THOSE ARE HERRING.

NO, THEY'RE, LIKE, A HAWAIIAN HERRING, DUDE.

THEY'RE TROPICAL.REALLY?

YEAH.

Josh: CASEY AND I ARE ABOUT TO HIT THE WATER HERE IN THE GREAT STATE OF HAWAII.

KEEP COMING.

WE'RE HOPING TO HEDGE OUR BETS WITH A LITTLE LOCAL INTEL.

I'M EXCITED THAT WE HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO GO OUT AND LEARN A LITTLE BIT.

JEFF'S GOT A REPUTATION OF BEING ONE OF THE BEST COMMERCIAL FISHERMEN AROUND HERE.

Josh: WE REACHED OUT TO EVERY CONTACT WE HAVE IN THE INDUSTRY THAT KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT KONA, AND THEY ALL SAID THERE'S ONE GUY WE SHOULD CALL.

Jeff: I'M GOING TO LINK UP WITH THESE GUYS TODAY, SEE WHAT THEY'RE ABOUT.

I'LL BE ABLE TO TELL WITHIN A FEW MINUTES OF THEM BEING ON MY BOAT IF THESE GUYS ARE REAL.

SO IF THEY'RE NOT, THEY'RE GOING FOR A SWIM.

MY NAME IS JEFF SILVA.

I'M 37 YEARS OLD FROM THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII.

I'M A COMMERCIAL FISHERMAN.

HAWAII IS THE CENTER STAGE, THE BIG STAGE.

EVERYBODY COMES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

THIS IS THE MECCA. THIS IS IT.

COMMERCIAL FISHING, CHARTER-BOAT FISHING, TOURNAMENT FISHING --

EVERY TYPE OF FISHING YOU CAN IMAGINE HAPPENS OVER HERE.

THESE GUYS ARE COMING INTO HAWAII.

THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY'RE GETTING THEMSELVES INTO, NO CLUE.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE IN FOR A BRUTAL, BRUTAL, RUDE AWAKENING.

Casey: WHAT'S HAPPENING, JEFF?

WHAT'S UP, BOYS?

HERE, TAKE THIS.

WHAT'S THE PLAN?

IS THAT IT? CATCH FISH?

TEACH US HOW TO CATCH FISH.

TEACH YOU HOW TO CATCH FISH? YEAH.

SO WHAT'S THIS? WHAT DO WE GOT?

Josh: WELL, IT'S THE CHART WE'VE BEEN WORKING OFF OF.

WE STARTED FOLLOWING THESE MARKS.

30-YEAR-OLD CHART, YEAH, THAT'S NOT A NORMAL THING THAT WE BRING ON A BOAT.

WE ARE COMING OVER HERE TO GO SEE SOME OF THE SPOTS WHERE HIS DAD FISHED, PUT A HOOK IN THE WATER IN THE SAME SPOT.

FROM YOUR DAD? YEAH.

KIND OF RUNNING OFF OF MY OLD MAN'S MAP.

MM-HMM.

Jeff: YOU COULD SAY I'M CAUTIOUS ABOUT OUTSIDERS COMING ONTO OUR TURF, BUT I'M NOT GOING TO LIE.

OBVIOUSLY, I'VE HEARD OF PHIL HARRIS.

I MEAN, WHAT FISHERMAN HASN'T? I MEAN, HE'S A LEGEND.

IF HE WAS OUT HERE EXPLORING MY OCEANS, I'D WANT TO KNOW WHAT HE WAS UP TO.

WHERE'D BE A GOOD PLACE TO START IN THAT'S SOMEWHERE CLOSE TO SOME OF THESE MARKINGS?

JUST BY LOOKING AT WHERE THE NOTES AND STUFF ARE, YOU KNOW, IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR DAD EXPERIMENTED A LITTLE BIT WITH THE THOUSAND, THE MOST PRODUCTIVE FISHING DEPTHS AROUND THE ENTIRE ISLAND.

IT BASICALLY GOES 2,000, 3,000 FATHOMS OUT THERE, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, IT JUST SHOOTS UP ONTO THIS GIANT SHELF THAT LOCKS ITSELF IN PLACE LIKE A BOOKSHELF.

ALL THE WAY AROUND THE ISLAND, YOU HAVE THESE SHELVES LIKE THAT.

WE HAVE A LOT OF CURRENTS, A LOT OF WINDS THAT BRING A LOT OF STUFF OUR WAY --

FISH, BIRDS, A LOT OF ANIMAL LIFE OUT THERE.

SOMETHING, "THIS FATHOM LINE, THE POINT GETS ROUGH."

THAT'S THE THOUSAND FATHOM LINE.

"AHI FISH GOOD," IT SAYS.

Josh: THIS CHART'S A COMPLETE MYSTERY TO ME, BUT I KNOW THE YEARS MY DAD PUT INTO IT, IT MEANS SOMETHING.

JUST HAVING JEFF EXPLAIN ALL THESE MARKINGS, ESPECIALLY AROUND THE THOUSAND FATHOM LINE, IS DEFINITELY SAYING, "HEY, THERE'S SOMETHING GOING ON HERE."

WHEN YOU GET OUT HERE, RATHER THAN LOOKING AT THE WHOLE CHART, MAYBE LOOK AT ONE OR TWO MARKS.OKAY.

IF WE GET ON SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO FISH, GOING TO FISH HARD.

Jeff: HERE WE GO! GOT TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.

SO WHY SHOULD I HELP THESE GUYS?

I KNOW THEY'RE NO JOKE.

TO BE FISHERMEN IN ALASKA, THAT'S BRUTAL.

Josh: OH, BOY. NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.

WHOA!

Jeff: AS A SMALL-BUSINESS OWNER, I RESPECT THOSE GUYS.

THEY RUN A BIG BUSINESS.

THEY HAVE A MASSIVE OVERHEAD.

THEY HAVE MASSIVE QUOTA, MASSIVE EXPENSE.

ALL SIX TANKS PUNCHED, WE DID IT.

THESE GUYS KNOW HOW TO MOVE PRODUCT ON A MEGATON SCALE.

MAYBE I CAN TEACH THESE GUYS SOMETHING, AND MAYBE THEY CAN TEACH ME SOMETHING.

BUT I AIN'T CATCHING ALL THE FISH, AND THEY AIN'T TAKING ALL THE MONEY.

THAT AIN'T WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE.

Josh: WE'RE FINALLY ON THE TRAIL TO SOLVE THIS MYSTERY.

FIRST SPOT IS NEAR THE THOUSAND FATHOM LINE MARKED, "GOT AHI."

I'M HOPING WITH JEFF'S KNOWLEDGE THAT WE CAN START FOLLOWING THESE BREAD CRUMBS MY DAD LEFT BEHIND, JUST LIKE WE DID IN ALASKA.

GOING TO COME DOWN HERE AND SEE ALL THESE LITTLE STRINGS.

WE PUT IN MILLIONS OF POUNDS OF CRAB RIGHT HERE.

UP THERE, MY DAD WAS MOST KNOWN FOR FISHING A LITTLE SPOT CALLED THE ROCK PILE.

THE ROCKS START FROM RIGHT HERE THIS WAY.

IT'S A TRICKY AREA, BUT HE HAD HIS SECRETS.

THEN WE'RE GOING TO HIT LITTLE HARD SPOTS, AND WE'RE GOING TO WEAVE AROUND, AND THE TRICK IS TO GET THE POT RIGHT NEXT TO THE ROCK AND NOT ON THE ROCK.

YEARS LATER, WE APPLIED HIS LESSONS.

WOW! HOLY --

YEAH!

Josh: AND WE HIT BIG.

GOOD CAPTAIN MOVE, JOSH. I'LL GIVE YOU THAT ONE.

THANK YOU, OLD MAN.

MY DAD CAME TO ALASKA AND DOMINATED THE FISHING INDUSTRY.

WAS HE TRYING TO DO THE SAME IN HAWAII?

WITH JEFF'S HELP, MAYBE WE CAN FIGURE THIS OUT.

THIS IS A KO'A OUT HERE.

THIS IS A LEDGE, AND THERE'S PROBABLY GOING TO BE SOME BAITFISH SHOWING UP.

WHAT DO YOU CALL IT, KO'A?

KO'A. WHAT'S KO'A?

KO'A IS BASICALLY IN HAWAIIAN WHAT WE JUST BASICALLY CALL, LIKE, A GOOD FISHING GROUND.

IT'S A SPOT WHERE THERE MIGHT BE A BIG LEDGE THAT COMES UP, COULD BE A POINT, BUT ON THE RIGHT CURRENT AND THE RIGHT DEPTH, THE RIGHT TIDE, YOU KNOW, FISH COME IN ON THE BAIT LEDGES, AND THEY FEED.

Jeff: MAIN THINGS THAT I'M LOOKING FOR WHEN I'M OUT THERE IS ANY TYPE OF LIFE THAT'S EXISTING ON THE WATER.

IF THERE'S BIG BAIT SCHOOLS, AND THE BIRDS ARE HOVERING UP, CHANCES ARE THERE'S SOME TYPE OF BIG GAME FISH THAT'S UNDERNEATH THEM, AND IF THE BAITFISH ARE JUMPING, IT USUALLY MEANS THAT THEY'RE MOVING, AND IF THEY'RE MOVING, THEY'RE BEING HUNTED.

SOME BIG WHITE BIRD JUST WENT UP AND DOWN.

OH, RIGHT THERE. OOH, OOH, OOH, OOH, OOH, OOH.

LOOK AT ALL THE SPLASHING RIGHT THERE.

YEAH, SO WE GOT SOME BAIT COMING UP HERE.

OH,. THAT'S A BIG BAIT BALL.

WHEW!

SO, JOSH, YOU SEE ALL THIS RED ON THE SCREEN?

YEAH. THAT'S BAIT.

YOU SEE THESE OTHER STAGGERED MARKS KIND OF CONGREGATE UNDERNEATH THEM?

THOSE ARE BIGGER FISH THAT ARE LOOKING UP.

THOSE ARE PREDATORS.

IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S A COUPLE OF THEM DOWN THERE.

YEAH, SO WE'RE ACTUALLY MARKING AHI RIGHT NOW.

AHI.

SO WE'RE GOING TO GO UP-CURRENT A LITTLE BIT.

WE'LL THROW A LIVE BAIT OUT.

WE BASICALLY WANT TO BE PUTTING A BAIT AWAY FROM A PILE OF BAIT, SO A FISH CAN SINGLE THAT BAIT OUT AND GO AND EAT IT.

Jeff: SO YOU'RE GOING TO JUST BASICALLY JUST HOOK IT THROUGH THE NOSE, HOOK IT THROUGH THE EYE, ANY WAY YOU WANT.

YEAH, PERFECT.

UGH, DUDE, DID YOU SEE THAT SQUIRT?

DUDE, WHAT IS THAT? EYEBALL GOO?

Jeff: SO HE'S UNDERNEATH US. THAT'S GOOD.

SO WE'LL JUST KIND OF SIT TIGHT HERE.

KIND OF LET HIM SWIM.

Josh: WE ARE NOW CURRENTLY IN THE HUNT FOR SOME TUNA.

KIND OF INTIMIDATING.

IT'S NOT LIKE A CRAB BOAT WHERE I KNOW WHAT TO DO.

OH, YEAH, RIGHT BEHIND US.

BIG ONE. THERE WE GO.

RIGHT HERE.

HOOKED UP. HOLD ON. HOLD ON. HOLD ON.

HOLD ON. HOLD ON. HOLD ON. HOLD ON. HOLD ON.

ARE YOU ON? ARE YOU ON? WE'RE ON IT.

WE'RE ON? YEAH, WE'RE ON.

HEY, JOSH, GOING TO BRING THIS ONE IN.

JUST GO NICE AND SLOW, OKAY? OKAY.

HERE WE GO.

HE'S COMING IN ON IT HARD.

OH,.

Jeff: NOW THE REAL GAME BEGINS.

OH, YEAH, RIGHT BEHIND US, BIG ONE.

HERE WE GO. RIGHT HERE.

HEY, JOSH, GOING TO BRING THIS ONE IN.

JUST GO NICE AND SLOW, OKAY?

HERE WE GO.

HE'S COMING IN ON IT HARD.

OH,.

Josh: OH, WOW.

COME OVER HERE, JOSH.

OKAY.YEAH.

OKAY. JUST KEEP THE LINE TIGHT. YOU'RE GOOD.

I DON'T WANT TO LOSE THAT FISH.

Josh: WE ARE IN HAWAII USING MY DAD'S CHART, TRYING TO REEL IN A FISH. IT IS INSANE.

YOU TAKE A LINE AT, LIKE, YOUR ROPE TREE SWING OUT IN FRONT OF YOUR HOUSE AND TIE THAT TO THE BACK OF YOUR PARENTS' CAR AND PUT IT IN DRIVE AND TRY TO STOP IT.

THAT'S HOW IT FEELS TO BRING IN ONE OF THESE FISH.

OH. GOT YOU.

SORRY. NO, KEEP GOING.

FOCUS ON THE FISH. WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN HIM YET.

IT'S A NICE MAHI-MAHI.

CASEY, AT SOME POINT, YOU GOT TO TRY TO GRAB THAT LINE.

KEEP ON WINDING HIM IN. KEEP WINDING HIM IN.

KEEP WINDING HIM IN.

RIGHT THERE, GRAB THE LEADER. GAFF THE FISH.

OKAY. DON'T GAFF MY BOAT, PLEASE.

GOT IT.

DAMN IT. HE RAN!

KEEP ON BRINGING HIM.

OKAY, HOLD HIM UP RIGHT THERE.YOU'RE STILL HOOKED UP.

WIND HIM IN. WIND HIM IN.

GRAB THE LEADER. GRAB THE LINE.

THERE YOU GO. RIGHT THERE.

Josh: COME ON NOW.

Casey: I'M TWISTED UP ON THE LEADER.

Josh: GET IT, BUDDY. GETTING A GAFF?

IN THE BOAT.ALL RIGHT!

POP THE DRAG DOWN.

WHEW!

Josh: FIRST BLOOD.

SO DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT GAFF?

YEAH, THAT WAS EMBARRASSING AS.

SOMEHOW, I WRAPPED THE GAFF WITH THE LINE.

LET'S NOT TALK ABOUT IT TOO MUCH.

UGH, ME TRYING TO GAFF THE MAHI-MAHI.

Josh: OH, COME ON NOW.

GET IT, BUDDY.

I'M TWISTED UP ON THE LEADER.

WHEN I -- YOU GOT TO UNDERSTAND, IT'S...

IT'S DIFFICULT.

THAT GAFF IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE ENTIRE BATTLE OF FIGHTING A FISH BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T HOOK A FISH RIGHT, THERE'S NO SHOT THAT YOU'RE GOING TO LAND IT.

I WAS TRYING TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT.

MAIN THING IS, WE GOT THE FISH.

THAT'S THE MAIN THING. WE GOT THE FISH.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Jeff: WE JUST LANDED A MAHI-MAHI.

IT'S A GOOD STARTER FISH FOR CASEY AND JOSH.

BUT WE NEED TO BOX 10 MORE TO EQUAL WHAT AN AHI IS WORTH.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE GOING AFTER THE AHI.

WE'RE REALLY GOING AFTER THE AHI RIGHT NOW.

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA. YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

THERE'S A LIVEWELL RIGHT THERE.

WATCH OUT. FOUND THE LIVEWELL.

DID YOU GET THAT? SHUT UP.

SHUT UP. I JUST FELL IN THE LIVEWELL.

OKAY? IT HAPPENED.

IT'S A TINY BOAT.

IT'S A TINY, TINY BOAT, YOU KNOW?

HOLY!

IT HAPPENS ON CRAB BOATS A LOT.

YOU JUST FELL IN THE TANK. THAT'S A CASE OF BEER.

THAT'S A CASE OF BEER, BY THE WAY TOO.

YEAH! I KNOW!

I KNOW! THAT'S A CASE OF BEER.

DOES THAT MEAN I OWE YOU GUYS A CASE OF BEER?

BECAUSE THAT'S HOW WE PLAY IN THE BERING SEA.

I TOLD YOU THERE'S A LIVEWELL THERE.

LOOKS LIKE WE'RE DRINKING TONIGHT.

YEAH.

ANYWAY, WE'RE GOING TO KIND OF WORK THIS AREA.

WE'LL SEE IF MAYBE WE CAN GET A COUPLE MORE OF THOSE GUYS, AND WE DID MARK A COUPLE NICE MARKS, SO I THINK THERE'S ACTUALLY A COUPLE AHIS ACTUALLY OVER HERE RIGHT NOW.

WHAT WOULD THAT BE DOWN THERE?

OKAY, SO THAT'S A BIG FISH RIGHT HERE.

WE GOT BAIT UP HERE ON THE TOP RIGHT THERE.

AND YOU CAN SEE THAT BIG RED INCHWORM RIGHT THERE.

THAT'S A BIG AHI, SO HE'S UNDERNEATH US.

THAT'S GOOD.

THAT MEANS HE'S LOOKING AT OUR BAIT.

Josh: WE'VE CAUGHT A MAHI, BUT THE BIG BOY IS THE AHI.

THESE THINGS CAN BE 150, 200-PLUS POUNDS.

HE'S DOWN THERE SNIFFING OUR BAIT.

COME ON, BUDDY. IT'S LUNCHTIME.

HOW FAR DOWN?

40 FATHOMS, SO HE'S A COUPLE HUNDRED FEET DOWN.

YEAH!

SO IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S AN AHI.

HOOKED UP, THERE YOU GO.

EVERYBODY OVER HERE, RIGHT HERE, OKAY?

ALL RIGHT.

THIS IS WHY YOU GUYS CAME HERE.

YEAH, YEAH.THIS IS IT RIGHT HERE.

ULA'ULA. OH, BABY.

FISH ON, MAN, AND THIS ISN'T A SMALL FISH EITHER.

Jeff: FEELS LIKE A GOOD-SIZE FISH.

Josh: GETTING ONE OF THESE MONSTERS TO BITE IS ONLY HALF THE BATTLE.

YOU GOT TO WRESTLE THESE THINGS ON THE BOAT, AND THIS ONE LOOKS PISSED.

WHAT IT'S ABOUT.

WE'RE TRYING TO TIME HIS CIRCLES RIGHT NOW SO THAT YOU WANT TO GET HIM CIRCLING IN A PINWHEEL, SO THAT BASICALLY WE WANT HIM UP ON HIS SIDE.

WE DON'T WANT HIM WITH HIS HEAD DOWN.

WE WANT TO TRY TO GET HIS HEAD UP, AND THE BETTER JOB WE CAN DO DOING THAT, THE BETTER CHANCE WE'RE GOING TO HAVE OF ACTUALLY GETTING THIS FISH.

THIS ROD HAS A LOT OF FLEX TO IT, BUT I DON'T WANT HIM TO SNAP IT.

THIS FISH COULD BE WORTH ALMOST $2,000.

WE DO NOT WANT TO THIS UP.

ONE FISH -- 2 GRAND.

Jeff: OKAY, SWITCH. YEAH.

Jeff: NICE AND EASY. KEEP IT ON.

YEAH. KEEP GOING.

THIS IS SUPER CRITICAL RIGHT HERE.

WE CAN'T THIS UP, OKAY? DUDE...

OOH.IT'S OKAY. IT'S OKAY. IT'S OKAY.

Jeff: WE'RE TIMING HIS CIRCLES, SO WHEN HE GOES DOWN LIKE THIS, WE'RE GOING TO PUSH THE ROD OUT LIKE THIS.

YEAH.

HOLY!

WHOA!

LOOK AT THE MULLET THEN.

THAT'S BILLY RAY CYRUS STYLE.

NOW IT'S FEATHERED.YOU'RE A FREAK.

MY DAD WAS A LEGENDARY CRAB CAPTAIN, AND HE HAD A LEGENDARY HEAD OF HAIR.

HE WAS KNOWN FOR HAVING A MULLET.

YOU COULDN'T START A SEASON WITHOUT THIS AWESOME, AWESOME LITTLE GEL THING OF SPARKLY MULLET RUB.

I HOPE THAT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ME.

BUT HE WASN'T ALONE.

APPARENTLY, MY DAD ONLY HAD FRIENDS THAT HAD MULLETS.

OH, MAN!

JOHNATHAN HILLSTRAND, SIG HANSEN, MY DAD --

THEY ALL HAD SOMETHING IN COMMON.

THEY SHARED THE BOND OF THE MULLET.

DAH! DAH!

Jeff: THIS FISH COULD BE WORTH ALMOST $2,000.

WE DO NOT WANT TO THIS UP.

ONE FISH -- 2 GRAND.

YEAH. OKAY, SWITCH.

Jeff: NICE AND EASY. KEEP IT GOING.

YEAH. KEEP IT GOING.

Jeff: THIS IS SUPER CRITICAL RIGHT HERE.

WE CAN'T THIS UP, OKAY? DUDE...

YEP.

HOLY!

THIS GUY IS NOT HAPPY, MAN.

NO, HE'S NOT.

WE GOT A FISH ON. THE THING IS NOT VERY HAPPY.

JEFF'S NOT SURE IF IT'S HOOKED REAL GOOD, BUT IT'S GOING TO BE A BIG ONE.

Jeff: THAT'S A BIG AHI.

Jeff: WE GOT THE FISH ABOUT MAYBE 30 FEET BELOW THE BOAT.

YOU CAN SEE HIM. HE'S LOOKS TO BE ABOUT 140 POUNDS.

RIGHT, JOSH, I GOT ANOTHER GAFF RIGHT THERE.

IF YOU WANT TO GRAB THE BACKUP, YOU CAN BE THE BACKUP GAFF.

WE'RE ONLY GOING TO GET ONE SHOT.

WE WANT TO GAFF HIM IN THE HEAD.OKAY.

WE DON'T WANT TO GAFF HIM IN THE BODY.

IT'S GOING TO TOTALLY UP OUR MEAT.

Josh: WOW.

HOLY SCHNIKES.Jeff: HOLD ON. NOT YET.

NOT YET. NOT YET. I'M GONNA GET ONE MORE CIRCLE ON HIM.

KEEP THAT GAFF UP. DON'T LET HIM SEE THAT.

HERE'S YOUR MOMENT RIGHT HERE. GO. GET HIM.

THAT'S IT. JOSH, BACKUP GAFF RIGHT NOW.

NO, NO, NO. DON'T PULL HIM IN THE BOAT.

DON'T PULL HIM IN THE BOAT YET. GOT THE GAFF?

YEAH, WE GOT HIM. ONE, TWO...

ON THREE? ...THREE.

YEAH!

DUDE!

OH, MY GOD.

ULAULA. WOW!

YOU GOT AN AHI. WOW.

HE'S BIGGER THAN THE DOLPHINS.

THIS FISH PROBABLY WEIGHS ABOUT 130, 140 MAYBE.

OHH. HOLY. WHEW!

WELL, WE CAUGHT OUR FIRST AHI.

ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL.

AND IT WAS MY DAD'S SPOT OFF THAT CHART.

JUST LIKE WHEN I WAS FISHING IN ALASKA AND I SET ON HIS SPOT WHERE HIS HOT SPOT WAS.

WELL...

YEAH, I GOT YOU, BUDDY.

WE'RE BLEEDING THE FISH RIGHT NOW.

SOLID MUSCLE, DUDE. YOU TAKE A LIFE.

YOU LEAVE THE LIFE OUT HERE IN THE OCEAN.

THIS IS YOUR FIRST YELLOWFIN, DUDE.

THIS IS HIS HEART.

YOU GOT TO TAKE A BITE, DAWG. IT'S STILL BEATING.

IT'S STILL BEATING!

CHEERS.

GOOD BITE, YOU GOT TO SWALLOW, TOO.

AW, MAN.

IT'S -- IT'S GOING TO BE FINE.

JUST SWALLOW IT. IT'S NOT THAT BAD.

NO. IT TASTES LIKE SUSHI.

ALL RIGHT, DUDE. IT.

UGH! HA!

NAH, DUDE. THAT WAS HALF-ASSED.

OH, YEAH?.

YOU EVER EAT THE HEART FOR FUN NOW?

I'VE NEVER EATEN IT, DUDE.

WHY ME?

ONE MORE! YEAH!

Jeff: TO CATCH A AHI AND A MAHI, IT'S A GOOD DAY, BUT TO REALLY THRIVE OUT HERE, YOU GOT TO STEP IT UP.

THE TRAINING WHEELS ARE STILL ON CASEY AND JOSH.

IT'S ONLY THE BEGINNING.

I'M INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT PHIL'S CHARTS AND EVEN WORKING WITH THESE GUYS BUT NOT UNTIL THEY SHOW ME THAT THEY CAN CATCH THEIR OWN DAMN FISH.

Casey: WITH JEFF'S KNOWLEDGE, OUR BUSINESS SENSE, AND THE CHARTS THAT PHIL LEFT BEHIND, I THINK THERE'S A FORMULA FOR SUCCESS IN THERE SOMEWHERE.

Josh: WE DISCOVERED THIS OPPORTUNITY.

WHAT WE MAKE OUT OF THIS IS UP TO US.

WHETHER IT'S ALASKA OR HAWAII, THERE'S ONLY ONE THING TO DO WHEN FACED WITH A CHALLENGE.

YOU CAN WATCH THINGS HAPPEN...

YOU CAN MAKETHINGS HAPPEN...

OR YOU CAN WONDER WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED.

Josh: WE'VE ONLY SCRATCHED THE SURFACE OF WHAT THESE CHARTS HOLD.

SOLVING THIS MYSTERY WILL NOT BE EASY.

IF I CAN CARRY ON THE OLD MAN'S TORCH, IT'LL BE WORTH IT.

I DIDN'T BACK DOWN FROM THE CORNELIA MARIE, AND I'M DEFINITELY NOT GOING TO BACK DOWN FROM THIS.

BUT, MAN, THIS IS HARD-CORE FISHING DOWN IN THERE.

I MEAN, IT'S -- IT'S ROUGH.

OH,.

Josh: FISHING OUT HERE IS NOT EASY, AND IT'S VERY FRUSTRATING FOR ME.

OHH! OH, THAT'S A SHARK.

OOH. AAH!

WHERE'D HE STAY WHEN HE WAS IN TOWN? WHO'D HE TALK TO?

YOU MET MY DAD, DIDN'T YOU? YES.

YOU'RE PHIL HARRIS' SON, YEAH? YES, SIR.

WELL, YOU KNOW, THERE IS STILL TWO ANCIENT HAWAIIAN FISHING VILLAGES.

ATTABOY! GET HER ON BOARD! YEAH!

-WHAT ARE YOU DOING, BROTHER?

HOW YOU DOING, MY MAN? HOW ARE YOU?

HERE'S TO THE OLD MAN. HE'S LISTENIN'.
