TAMPA, Fla. - The captain of the crab boat, the "Time Bandit," Johnathan Hillstrand, will be making appearances at the Tampa Boat Show this weekend at the Tampa Convention Center.
Besides his dangerous job as a crab fisherman on the temperamental Bering Sea, Hillstrand can also add "children's book author" to his title. While nursing an injury in the hospital, nurses handed him some paper and Sharpies, and that's when he penned his first children's book.
Hillstrand talks about his experiences aboard the boat, as part of the reality series "Deadliest Catch," and his books during his stop by our studios.
Hillstrand will be at the Tampa Boat Show at the Tampa Convention Center Saturday from noon- 2p.m., and 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. and again Sunday from noon - 2 p.m.
