Unfortunately, they hit a snag when they realized their team set out too far after catching over $120,000 worth of sweet, sweet crab. They had to dump it all right back in the ocean, or else it would have been considered illegal.

CAPTAIN: "The pots, more than likely crab in every last one of them, we gotta dump them out before we go back to the west."

CREW MEMBER: "We just worked our as*es off to find this crap and we can't keep it ..."
CREW MEMBER: "This sucks."

Captain Colburn, who started on The Wizard in 1988, said there couldn't have been a worse way to start the trip.

Dumping and re-locating pots costs the Wizard time and money. Had the crew been within the boundaries, they would have each received $42,000 for how much crab they caught.
