Brandon Ahrndt

Currently residing in Homer, AK, Brandon Ahrndt came a long way from Minnetonka, MN in search of the fisherman lifestyle. He started crabbing at age 20, but has been visiting his uncle in Alaska since he was 5.

Brandon has worked on boats like the F/V Viekoda Bay, gaining experience with pot fishing cod and also king and opilio crab in the Bering Sea.

With several years of experience, earning his sea legs aboard the newly captained Saga shouldn't be a problem. This will be his 9th opies season, and he's also a friend of Elliott's. He expects to be running hydros or manning the rail. Watch how this experienced deckhand meshes with a first time captain -- will he become one of Ray and Jake's newly devoted crewmembers? Or will his loyalty to Elliott impede that?
