'Deadliest Catch' Stars -- The Private Premiere

4/15/2010 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The people behind "Deadliest Catch" threw a special season premiere party for the family of the late Captain Phil Harris this week -- a party that featured an emotional tribute to the reality TV star.



TMZ has learned the show's creator Thom Beers hosted the private event at his home for an intimate group that included Phil's sons, Jake and Josh.

We're told the screening was "boisterous and tearful" -- and at one point, the group raised their glasses in a special toast to Phil's memory.

We're told a special public tribute is being planned for April 30th in Seattle.

This is a great tribute but lets not forgot the hundreds of fishermen who went down
in the Gulf of Alaska and there was never a glass raised to their memory or a T.V. tribute...



Let's not forget them... For those who nothing was found but a shell from their life raft
or a survival suit floating on the water that they were never able to don......



Let's raise a glass to them........

I doubt that was the only place where a glass was raised to Phil. I know we raised one in my home, too. RIP Phil!!!

TMZ-



You post garbage most of the time, and its about time that you post something worth substance. Deadliest catch and its prospective crews have gained much from you and other media sources at the cost of live and catch. As an Alaskan fisherman and avid "deadliest Catch" fan I am glad to see respect paid, an further I am glad to see many who understand the rigorous life these men lead. RIP Phil and all that come after....

@martin (1:11 am) - You're not real bright, are you? Every coastal bar in America REGULARLY raises a glass to "those who go down to the sea in boats". THIS SHOW was about Captain Phil Harris. If you have nothing to contribute along those lines, then beg off and find another blog!

It was sad to watch the premiere the other night. He is already missed even though he's not "gone" yet...
