Her Captain is none other than San Carlos’ own Wild Bill Wichrowski.

Many remember Bill from the big blue converted crab boat, the Arctic Eagle which was anchored in our harbor a few years ago. San Carlos was featured in one of the episodes last year when Bill brought his buddies, the Hillstrands of the Time Bandit boat, for a San Carlos fishing tournaments.

Wild Bill Update: July 2010

San Carlos’ own Captain Wild Bill has headed back north to Alaska. Bill is tendering salmon on the Kodiak and delivering them to Peter Pan Seafoods in Valdez, Alaska. The king crab season starts in October and we will all look forward to Bill’s second season on the Deadliest Catch next year.

Bill has just released his official website. Check it out at www.captwildbill.com. There is good information and a store to purchase “Wild Bill” gear.

One unique twist that Bill is doing is looking for a greenhorn deckhand through the website and Facebook. While filming the “After the Catch” episodes in New Orleans, Bill saw the devastation caused by the BP oil spill firsthand. Before returning to San Carlos, Bill made a swing through Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Bill knows the effects all too well, after his personal experience up north with the Exxon Valdez spill. Bill is looking for a capable deckhand who has been affected by the BP oil spill. Details and a short video about the search are in the “Contact Bill” section of his website.

This Deadliest Catch video features Wild Bill Wichrowski and the Kodiak crew joining the show.
