'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.

I miss Captain Phil and the show just won't be the same without him, but whoever did the crop circle had wayyyy too much time on his hands. All the same, it was a lovely gesture. My heart still goes out to Jake and Josh.

Everyone who posted something about Mr. Harris is correct. Although he could sometimes appear mean and arrogant, he still loves what he did and still loves his kids. He knew when it was time for business and time for play. The show will not be the same without him. RIP Mr. Harris and the Cornelia Marie will live on in your honor. Your own family as well as your TV family loves and misses you!

Captain Phil gave us all a laugh and a thrill and to see and be able to work with his boys on the Cornelia Marie must have been GOLD to his eyes. Can't wait to see how it goes for them in the upcoming season. Our prayers goes out to all the crab vessels,their crews, and to the film crews who brings us the shows every week.

Phil was always my favorite. I think that he would be surprised by how much people genuinely cared for him. I know he is looking down with a big grin on his face. God speed my friend!
