It appears that most of the captains and crew have wrapped up their opilio seasons. Some of the bigger stars from the show will be appearing at South By SouthWest Festival In Austin this weekend. The Opilio crab season is usually completed by the end of Feburary. Last season, the bering sea broke all previous records for sea ice coverage and many boast fished well into April.

“It will be awesome, but when we first get back from fishing it takes a few days so it will be a little disconcerting,” Captain Keith Colburn told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column.
Alongside Colburn will be Captains Sig Hansen and Johnathan Hillstrand to discuss the role social media has played in the groundbreaking series, which returns for its ninth season in April. And aside from having shared their death-defying occupation with the world for several years now, it seems the show has taught the crabbers a thing or two.
