'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.

Captain Phil Harris would likely have thought of this as a crappy, bizzare idea. Unless it brought awareness to someone in need of something. Hope he rests in peace. Missed greatly on the show.

The whole fishing industry has become richer because of the generosity of the captains who allowed access to their vessles. Thanks to Phil and others who have "schooled" us for o many years.
