The young blood amongst a sea of old veterans, Karl really stepped up last season and became an integral part of the crew, likable for his easy laugh and humble demeanor.
Being a salmon boat owner and having some experience brown crab fishing made Karl not the greenest of greenhorns, but like Jake Anderson said -- it's hard when you first start on any boat. But Sig and company believe in investing in the Northwestern crew, both personally and financially, to keep them around for the long haul.
So as long as Karl is looking to stay in crabbing, it looks the Northwestern might be his new home for some time.
