The Deadliest Job in America is, claimed to be crab fishing on the Bering Sea. A good season can make one man a year’s salary in just a few days! With forty-foot waves, 700 pound crab pots, freezing temperatures and your mortality staring you in the face…this job ranks as one of the deadliest.
Eddie joined the Time Bandit as a greenhorn for the 2011 Opilio season after spending two summers salmon tendering on the boat with his father, Eddie Sr.
As a young greenhorn, Eddie was the inevitable target of numerous pranks on the boat, but impressed the crew by working through a serious illness.
Eddie is looking to spend a few years fishing for crab, but isn't sure if he wants to make his career on the harsh waters of the Bering Sea.
Eddie Jr. also has a young son, Edward Uwekoolani IV.
