Captain Andy Hillstrand is an Alaskan crab fisherman on the Time Bandit fishing vessel on Discovery Channel's documentary, "Deadliest Catch."

Andy Hillstrand is a born and bred Alaskan, and a third generation fisherman. The ocean is in his blood. Aboard Time Bandit, Andy is co-captain along with his brother John Hillstrand. During King Crab season, you'll find Andy on deck sorting and counting crab with the rest of the crew. During Opilio Crab season, you'll find Captain Andy in the wheelhouse hunting for the elusive opies and fighting rogue waves and hull-crushing ice. Known as the Axeman, Andy is the consumate professional fisherman and takes every aspect of crew and boat safety seriously. It should come as no surprise that the Captain can rewire electrical systems, stitch up an injured crewmember, and bring in boat loads of crab!

Andy is a devoted family man. He and his wife, Sabrina, have been married 26 years. They have two grown daughters, Chelsey and CassAndra. Andy is also a grandfather - Chelsey and her husband Corbin are proud parents of two little boys Dylan and Kade. Andy's youngest daugher, CassAndra, has just graduated from college with her degree in professional photography.



When he's not fishing, Andy returns home to his 17 acre ranch in Indiana where he and Sabrina own and operate their other business, Hobby Horse Acres. Specializing in Parelli Natural Horsemanship, Andy and Sabrina not only train horses, but teach riding to adults and children. Andy trains Quarter horses through the natural horsemanship or "horse whisperer" technique.  Andy was a barrel horse racing champion three years running with the National Barrel Horse Association.

For recreation, Andy has many interests. When there is time, he likes to hunt. In fact, he has several of his trophy size moose horns mounted at the ranch. He also loves playing drums! Since 7th grade he's played and listened to everything from hard rock to country to golden oldies. He likes to indulge in RC (remote control) airplanes and helicopters, and vacations in exotic tropical locations where he is able to dive and snorkel!
