Character Bio

Johnathan Hillstrand photo
With the self-confidence of a leader and the heart of a teddy bear, Johnathan Hillstrand runs a generally happy boat - and a very tight ship. With the dangers posed by the Bering Sea, the safety of his crew has to be his chief concern. There is no room for mistakes when Johnathan is in the wheelhouse.

But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t like a bit of fun. Notorious for his shenanigans, Captain Johnathan is always looking to spice things up with pranks and friendly competition.

Like his brothers, Johnathan was born and raised in Alaska. Life at sea began at an early age; their father, John Sr., took them out on the boat just after they'd learned to walk. The Hillstrand brothers began fishing at the age of seven.

Johnathan became a full-time fisherman after high school. He has not only been a crab fisherman, but for eight years, he professionally fished for lobster off the New England coast.

Johnathan is divorced with two kids and family is very important to him. He knows his time on the water is running out so he is trying to instill as much crabbing knowledge as he can into his son, deckhand Scotty Hillstrand.

When he's not crabbing in the winter, you'll find Johnathan fishing for salmon during the summer on board his 38-foot Fishing Fever.
