“…He’s fantastic! Engaging, entertaining and genuine. He’s got great stories and conveys them in a captivating manner without sounding boastful or arrogant. He’s an authentically nice guy and his photography is second to none!” – Rick Lull, Emerald Princess
“That video says it all! Captain Jack is the real deal. If he can learn to work through his fears and learn how to thrive in such a crazy dangerous place, so can the rest of us. I loved his talk that I saw in Oregon. Truly inspiring. And his book made me feel like I was on the boat with him!” – Trish Wilkenson
“Thank you Jack, for all the stories and pictures. As a retired Alaska fisherman, often missing it, this is the best way to revisit my 25 years of commercial fishing. Beating ice off the boat, is not what I miss, but the amazing friendships, earned in tight quarters 24/7.” – Poul Toftemark

“You Can’t Make This Stuff Up”

A WICKED WINTER NIGHT

By Capt. Jack Molan

The Bering Harvester pounds through challenging waves. The gale blows sea spray across our decks that flash freezes, adding weight to the boat. Having delivered our last load of fish, we’re enduring the 200-mile return to our fishing area.

Boats can roll in icing conditions, but if I continue at reduced speed in the inky black night, the spray should be manageable. Squinting at the chart, my eyes burn from being awake for 24 hours. I plot a course skirting the peninsula separating the North Pacific and Bering Sea, keeping the trawler five miles from land.

The first watch arrives in the wheelhouse to relieve me: Johnny, our youngest crewman at 24. His dark eyes look brighter after a few hours’ sleep. “If the wind picks up or the temp drops, wake me,” I say and go below deck to catch a nap. I fall asleep instantly and am startled awake when I hear, “Cap, you better take a look.” Fully dressed, I roll up and over the high-sided bunk to rush after Donny, the deck boss, up the short staircase, into the wheelhouse. The hair rises on the back of my neck. We have no visibility on the starboard side. High on the mast, our crab lights accentuate the ice crystals that obscure the windows. Stepping to the port side, I see less ice and purse my lips, forcing air out slowly.
We’re in trouble…
