Nick Tokman, also known as “Sunshine” from the Emmy-winning show “Deadliest Catch” (Discovery Channel), is someone who has always gone after what he wants in life. Although Nick’s feats can be seen on the show, what is not known is his story….From dropping out of college, being cut off financially from his parents and living on the streets to finding his dream job aboard a crab fishing boat in Alaska, Mike and Nicole talked to him about his story

For the past four years, Nick has been on the show battling some of the harshest conditions on the Bering Sea as a commercial crab fisherman. From working 20 plus hour days, wrestling 800-pound steel crab pots, rogue waves, extreme cold, freezing spray and repetitive manual labor; Nick has proved to himself that he has what it takes to overcome almost anything life throws at him.
