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.
Neal is the youngest of the five Hillstrand brothers. Like his siblings, he has been around the ocean from a very young age, and has spent much of his time on the decks of the Time Bandit with Captains. Johnathan and Andy.
Neal truly knows every aspect of keeping the family crabbing boat ready for sea. Whether he is serving as engineer, deckhand, cook or skipper, Neal delivers a total effort for crew and vessel.
Last year, Neal’s son Axel Hillstrand joined the Time Bandit as a greenhorn and is looking to follow in his father’s footsteps this year.
