'Deadliest Catch' Capt. -- Memorialized in Crop Circles

Former "Deadliest Catch" star Capt. Phil Harris -- who died in February -- has officially been honored with the corniest memorial ever ... a giant maze constructed in his likeness ... on a corn field.

According to sources at Rutledge Corn Maze -- a company that builds a different corn maze on their property every year as an amusement attraction -- "The Captain Phil Harris Memorial Maze" was made to honor the late fisherman for his contributions to the local community.

The name of Phil's crab fishing vessel -- the Cornelia Marie -- is also immortalized in the Tumwater, Washington corn field.

According to the Rutledge website, the grand opening for the maze is scheduled for September 11 ... and Phil's two sons -- also on the Discovery Channel show -- are expected to be there.

Everyone: ignore Dustin. He is too much of a jackhole to restrain such ignorant and disrespectful comments about a man who was loved by more people than Dustin would ever deserve. Captain Phil was a great captain and I loved the show!

This Maze is GREAT.. There are more people out there that LOVED Captain Phil as much as my family did,, It is great that people feel like they know him when they never met him, His son's should be VERY PROUD of him... And it is great that his son's are keeping up the business for him... He was a great guy!!!
