** Sig's daughter Mandy overslept. Uncle Edgar and "big brother" Jake awakened her by lighting her cabin up with a flamethrower (lighter + aerosol can). Sig looked incredibly torn about the whole thing (on the one hand the greenhorn deserves punishment, on the other hand said 'horn is his ''youngestdaughter ''...).

** In the very first season of the show, which detailed the sinking of the ''Big Valley'' and the ensuing rescue efforts. There was desperate hope that her six crew could be saved - in the end, tragically, there was only one survivor, as he was the only one who made it into the life raft. Two men were found floating in the water, and all attempts to resuscitate them failed. The bodies of the remaining three crew, including the captain, were never found, as they fell into the sea without survival suits.


Added DiffLines:

** On top of all that, ''everyone'' seems to have a stew of ongoing personal problems -[[DisappearedDad absentee fathers]], strings of failed marriages, baby momma conflicts, child custody battles, alcoholism, drug addictions, trouble with the law - all of which often serves as drama fodder.

** Justin Tennison, an engineer on the Time Bandit, also received one. He died in his sleep at the tender age of 34, due to complications of sleep apnea, just over a week after the end of the 2011 Opie season. Later, once they hit a fishing hotspot, they had a small funeral for him aboard the Time Bandit, and scattered his ashes in the sea.

* ManipulativeEditing: In season 11, Jake fired a deckhand, apparently because he was late returning to the boat while it was docked (as well as constantly being drunk on the job). The ''real'' reason was revealed in an ''After the Catch'' special - the deckhand had smashed in the door to Jake's room and trashed it in a drunken rage. For whatever reason, the incident was not shown or even mentioned in the actual episode.

** In the 2016 season, bairdi fishing was shut down entirely, and the species became illegal to catch, totally devastating the crabbing industry. Again, it was a necessity, as was discovered by environmental authorities that the bairdi population had hit a staggering, all time low.

* RealityTV / DocuSoap: TheOtherWiki has this classified as a "Fishing Show". Sig doesn't seem to like the term "reality TV show", probably due to the fact that most "reality" shows aren't very "real" (say what you will about editing, you can't fake the weather).

** TheOtherWiki notes that people had a problem with Sig making a deal to endorse crab sold by Wal-Mart, which was acquired from the Barents Sea fishery. Sig severed the relationship when it was discovered the manufacturer was selling crab caught by poachers.

* HollywoodVoodoo: While they're in UsefulNotes/NewOrleans, the formerly battling captains of the ''Wizard'' and the ''Time Bandit'' are sent to find a voodoo shop to spiritually patch things up. Keith was very uncertain of this since he's only heard of the evil Hollywood version, but after seeing a picture of Jesus in the shop he figured they can't be ''too'' bad ("I only need to listen to [[{{God}} The Big Guy]] -- and [[{{Jesus}} His Kid]]").

:: The story was later retold in season six, when Josh admitted his intention to find work on another boat due to him not being able to deal with working alongside his brother any more. This time, Phil added that after getting his butt kicked by his older brother in a fair fight, that it simply convinced Jake to become incredibily passive-aggressive with his brother, just made the sibling rivalry worse.
