Welcome to the official site of Capt. Wild Bill

Welcome to the official website of Captain Wild Bill Wichrowski, Navy veteran, commercial fisherman, captain, and star of Discovery Channel’s award-winning Deadliest Catch.

Wild Bill is in his eighth season with the television show that chronicles King Crab fishing in the Bering Sea, a profession recognized as one of the most hazardous in the world. Over more than three decades of working his way up the ranks, he’s seen it all — life-threatening conditions, brutal weather, backbreaking labor, isolation, sleep deprivation, accidents, and death — and has lived to tell about it. And what stories he can tell.
