‘Deadliest Catch’ star ‘Wild’ Bill Wichrowski and his son, Zach Larson, had a difficult relationship

Deadliest Catch Season 19 fans are missing Zach Larson, and they may recall his relationship with his famous father, Captain “Wild” Bill Wichrowski. Larson and Wichrowski had a difficult father-son relationship. Wichrowski has three kids, and Larson was from a previous marriage (he took his mother’s last name). Reports suggest Wichrowski stepped out of his son’s life when Larson was young, causing a rift. Larson joined his father in 2008 to catch crabs together for the first time. They had a distant relationship when they both joined the show in season 6, but they became closer as they worked together on the Cape Caution on the Bering Sea.
