ANCHORAGE, Alaska — His show is called “Deadliest Catch” and there were hundreds of fans trying to catch some time with Captain Sig on Saturday.

Sig Hansen signed t-shirts, books and even faces at the 5th Avenue Mall. He made an appearance at the Alaska Walking Store.

Some people waited a couple of hours to see him.

“We just flew in for the day and I don’t know how many people showed up but there must have been 300 or 400 people at least and it just never surprises me,” Hansen said. “It’s amazing when you meet people from Florida and all over the country.”

Hansen said the show started out as a documentary on the Discovery Channel, and he’s surprised how its popularity exploded.
