    That is really too bad. I was one of my favorites as he seemed really genuine. Someone, who seemed rough around the edges, but could always be counted on in a pinch.

    Yeah I heard about this earlier and I'm definately not surprised, his body was shot to hell.

    He was one of if not the favorite captain of mine and will be missed. *salutes*

    Sad to hear. Just watching the show though, that guy was always stressed out. Hopefully his boys will keep the tradition going.

    Man, that sucks. I was so happy last season when he got out of the hospital and was doing better. He's the ONLY Captain whose boat I'd consider working on from that show. I feel for his family and crew. At least now he's stress and pain free. God bless the Harris clan.

    Sad news indeed. After watching the show for 5+ years, it'll be strange to see the show without him. RIP Phil.

    I just learned about this news today and was shocked.. Captain Phil was one of my favorites. I grew up around fishermen like him, i learned all i know about it from salty dog old timers, teaching me how to tie my hooks, what baits to use ect... So when Deadliest Catch started i was hooked and never missed and episode.
    Captain Phil was one of the best, from his devotion to his family to how he ran his ship.. I loved his take no shit give me all you got attitude..
    They said on the DC web site that he had the Stroke while offloading his catch and the cameras were rolling during the entire thing. It is undecided if they will air this when the new season starts.
    My guess is that his sons Josh and Jake will want them to air it because there dad would want them to.. He loved fishing and had said many times on the show that he wants to go out doing what he loved most. So i think it will be aired.
    I look forward to seeing Captain Phil one last time . He will be missed .
    God Speed Captain..
