On Monday, August 14, Jake and the F/V Saga and Deadliest Catch family got the news that Saga crew member Hannes M. Huswick had unexpectedly passed away. Here is Jake's statement:
When Captain Jake took over the Saga in August of 2015, he knew there was work to be done. Ever since, Captain Jake and the crew have been working hard to do everything to make her fit for duty, just like her cousin, the Northwestern. Read about the upgrades being made to the Saga over on "The Boat."
We're proud to announce the launch of our new website, FV-SAGA.COM. Here you'll be able to get to know the boat, her crew, and Captain Jake. You can also follow along with news updates, and pick up some F/V Saga gear, like Captain Jake's book, Relapse.
Special thanks to Devon Leger and Carl-Eric Tangen at Hearth PR for making fv-saga.com a reality!
The new season of Deadliest Catch is here! That makes Season 12 of the television show and this will be the biggest season yet for Jake. He's taken over the helm of the F/V Saga and is the sole captain of the boat, shepherding his crew through the Bering fishing grounds. It won't be easy to catch the boat's large quota, and there will be conflicts with old friends hired on as new crew and clashes with his once-mentor Sig Hansen, who now sees Jake as a legitimate threat. Tune in every Tuesday at 9pm on Discovery for Deadliest Catch and get to know the captain and crew of the Saga.
