Along with getting his hands dirty, Mike also narrates Discovery Channel's number one show, Deadliest Catch, a gripping documentary series about fishing boat crews who brave the Bering Sea in search of Alaskan king crab. The crews risk their lives in some of Mother Nature's harshest conditions, and camera crews catch the fisherman working around the clock.
Mike says he's worked with the crews in Dutch Harbor for years and has great admiration for them. "It's a different kind of guy that fishes for crab on the Bering Sea," he says. "Authentic and—I won't say fearless because everybody's scared of something—but they process risk differently. They live differently, and it's fascinating."
