The mid-ocean switch was ultra exciting tv to watch, but I must admit I was surprised they just didn't go back to Dutch Harbor or another close port if they were so determined to exchange Jakes back before the end of King Crab season. I guess both Phil and Sig felt they couldn't spare the fishing time.
Among the captains, neither Jonathon nor Keith has ever been a favorite of mine, but I've always disliked Keith more. He seems to do whatever he wants (such as putting his pots on top of Phil's a couple of seasons ago) and then thinking he can just apologize and it will all go away. Jonathan is definitely a hot head, but I can't really blame him if Keith did try to steal his crew member, though Jonathon should not have said what he did about Keith's brother.
On a side note, I would be tickled pink to see Sig complete on Dancing With the Stars. He can be really funny in interviews although I think they'd have to use the bleep button an awful lot. All these fisherman are not used to monitoring their language.
