* DopeSlap (because there isn't an applicable page for Bitch Slap): Wild Bill gives a ''hard'' one to a greenhorn who was literally asleep at the wheel when he was supposed to be watching out for hazards.



* GroinAttack: Though not the usual kind: one member of Jake Harris' crew had an enlarged testicle that turned out to be a hernia ([[NauseaFuel his intestines were escaping into his sack]]). So of course--
-->'''Capt. Casey''': Hey you guys, come take a look at this!\\
'''''Cornelia Marie'' crew''': ''[[ShareTheMalePain AARGH!]]''



** Two in a row for the captains of the ''Cornelia Marie'': Casey helped a deckhand drain an infected cyst and got some blood and puss in his eye; the next episode they bore witness to another crewman's swollen testicle (a helpful graphic explained it was actually a hernia).



* TheNicknamer / EmbarrassingNickname(?): Wild Bill dubs his two greenhorns "The Swedish Twins" for no apparent reason (at least to the narrator) as they are neither Swedish nor twins.



** A ship came within touching distance of a man whose ship had sunk; unfortunately it was a giant car-carrier (the closest opening or rung was 20' above the water's surface, and on top of that there was a storm) and the people on board couldn't do anything but watch as the man drifted past.

It's an entirely different boat with an entirely different way of doing things, and as might be expected, he struggled to keep up. Captain Mike Wilson gave him some slack, but the rest of the crew rode his ass 24/7. Jake admitted in the Season 10 premiere that any pride he had in himself was beaten out of him by his experiences on the ''Kiska Sea.'' And then, when Edgar started talking to the camera about Jake's return to the ''Northwestern,'' it was clear that a lot of Edgar's respect for Jake was gone due to the way his last stint aboard the ''Northwestern'' ended.

** Subverted in Season 6 King Crab with Wild Bill's son, Zack Larson.
*** ItGotBetter as Zack Larson was on the ''Kodiak'' for Season 7 and is still under him on the ''Cape Caution'' in season 11 as the ship's engineer. Season 8 revealed that Bill didn't think he was pulling his weight, though Zack's tweets seemed to indicate he didn't see anything unusual about it (or at least didn't consider it to be "yelling")
*** Wild Bill: "Zack's a great kid, he just has no balls". Considering Wild Bill's dad was a ''[[DrillSergeantNasty Marine drill sergeant]]'' who was so scary that young Bill would leave as soon as he got home, Bill's concern for his son -- who he didn't even want to become a crabber -- is positively cuddly. The other captains chime in that their dads were the same (with the addition that their dads would tell everyone ''but'' their kids how proud they were of them), although BadAssGrandpa[=s=] tended to be pretty cool.

** Josh Harris is increasingly being marginalized by the other captains, as they believe he lacks the work ethic to take command of the ''Cornelia Marie'' on his own. Adding to the scorn is the fact that many people hold Phil Harris is high regard and feel that Josh isn't doing enough to honor his father's legacy. Not helping matters is the fact that people tend to consider Casey to be truly in charge of the ''Cornelia'' and turn to him first rather than Josh.

* FollowTheLeader: ''Swords'', ''Lobstermen'', ''Series/WhaleWars''...
** Even the BBC got in on the act, with the rather more prosaically-titled ''Trawlermen''.
** Plus every adventurous reality show set in UsefulNotes/{{Alaska}}.



* RuleOfDrama: Season 12 opened chock-full of drama: [[spoiler: Captain Keith was still reeling from his divorce (and then engine trouble), Captain Johnathan almost got fined, new ship the ''Brenna A'' was called up early to fulfill her late captain's dream of becoming a crab boat, Zach Larson dealing with someone he hired wasn't exactly as stellar as his resume said he was, and Captain Sig screwing with Jake Anderson ''just because'']] but at least the fishing was ''great'', which was also dramatic given it was during El Nino and the crab would be harder to find due to warmer water combined with higher quotas.
