MONTE “MOUSE” COLBURN OF DEADLIEST CATCH
Join the Squaw Valley Institute for an exciting presentation from Monte Colburn from the Discovery Channel series Deadliest Catch.
Monte Colburn has spent much of his life dodging heavy runaway crab pots and balancing on the icy deck of a 155-foot fishing boat in the churning Bering Sea.Now he does it on national television. But despite the adventure, the adrenaline — and now the unexpected fame of the “Deadliest Catch,” a reality TV show — Colburn’s heart is always in the quiet Kings Beach home he shares with his family.
Every October for the past 22 years, the deep sea fisherman leaves North Tahoe and sets out for Alaska to perform what is deemed one of the deadliest lines of work — catching Alaskan crab. Millions of Americans tune in weekly to watch Colburn and his crew battle the elements of the northernmost region of the Pacific Ocean.“I never imagined being on television, not in a million years. It’s still a bit baffling,” Colburn said recently while lounging on his lake-view deck. Colburn serves as co-captain of the Wizard, his brother Keith’s Alaskan crab fishing vessel, which is featured on the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch series. via Sierra Sun.
