Captain David Lethin and crew are preparing the Aleutian Ballad (also a tour boat with the Bering Sea Crab Fishermen's Tour) to make the trek to Alaska and fish for Brown King Crab. The dome shaped pots will be dropped to the ocean floor in hopes of securing a healthy load of the highly sought after crustaceans.
