Johnathan Hillstrand

Captain, F/V Time Bandit & Star of Discovery Channel’s "Deadliest Catch"
Discovery Channel
With the self-confidence of a leader and the heart of a teddy bear, Johnathan Hillstrand runs a generally happy boat -- and a very tight ship. With the dangers posed by the Bering Sea, the safety of his crew has to be his chief concern. There is no room for mistakes when Johnathan is in the wheelhouse. Although a serious fisherman, John is also known as the practical joker onboard the Time Bandit. "Flour bombs," teetering buckets of water, and the unexpected detonation of a seal bomb or two are just a few of his favorite pranks! He'll also reveal from time to time a soft spot for wounded seabirds and other creatures.
