Man overboard was from Pennsylvania

Lower 48 media reports say the crewman lost off a fishing vessel Friday near Sand Point was Joe Haller, of Greenville, Pa.

Here's a western Pennsylvania newspaper story, and here's a TV report out of neighboring Youngstown, Ohio.

The crewman was 19 years old, the reports say.

Contrary to the TV report, the F/V Glacier Spirit was fishing for cod, not crab.

The U.S. Coast Guard has not officially released the victim's name.

I fished with Rick Eastlick...this is not suprising. Rick has a tendancy to hire greenhorns and does not retain last years crew.
I worked for him and he did not pay me back in 2005-2007
He also will not give you a contract.
Be very careful if you fish with him.
