Captain Scott Campbell, Jr. is determined to make the Seabrooke one of the top performing fishing vessels of the Bering Sea.
The Seabrooke is the "Corvette" of the Bering Sea: it's fast, it's red and it packs heavy horsepower. This is a boat made for serious fishing.
During last Opilio season Junior made up for two lost weeks due to mechanical failure by working through dangerously thick sea ice. No matter what comes his way, Junior pushes his crew and his boat to the extreme in order to get results.
So far Junior's drive has brought the Seabrooke successful numbers, but we still know little about what makes this captain tick. What drives him? Is it acceptance from his father and his peers, or pure ego?
