Part of the Hillstrand clan, Phillip is returning for a second season of working for Uncle Johnathan and Andy.
Last year, the Time Bandit greenhorn fished a full season of Kings and a brief but memorable season of Opies. After being pushed around on deck by a veteran fisherman (aka outlandish deckhand Danny), the young greenhorn's season was cut short just days in when his hand was crushed by the launcher.
Eager to prove himself, Phillip wants to show everyone that he was sidelined by unfortunate circumstance, not because he didn't have what it takes. He'll likely be back at the bait station, a job he says he doesn't mind. But even with his hand back to an estimated 90%, he's worried about being able to do his job and keep up with the rest of the young crew.
