'Deadliest Catch' Sons to Honor Dad on Thanksgiving

11/25/2010 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Deadliest Catch" stars Jake and Josh Harris have made plans to return home to Washington this Thanksgiving ... where they will honor their father, Captain Phil, during an intimate gathering of friends and family ... TMZ has learned.

The "Deadliest Catch" stars wrapped up Alaskan King Crab season aboard the Cornelia Marie earlier than expected -- so the boys quickly organized a trip home to meet up with their grandfather.

We're told the family will celebrate the holiday at a family friend's home ... where they plan on honoring Phil with a night of story-telling and toasts in his honor.

Cheers to that.

Captain Phil would have loved it. Talking about the good times and the bad...are the way to heal. Happy Thanksgiving to the Harris family and Deadliest Catch families. RIP, Cap't Phil, you are missed.

That Cap'n Phil was one tough son of a B. He lived a life that was destined not to last a long long time, but he gave 1,000% in the time he was here. Poor kids having to lose their Dad so early. We miss Phil.

Very nice. To think how many more people that cared about their dad, from being on the show. Sometimes our destiny is the way it is meant to be.

Of course they are done early. They quit the boat. Told the captain they are there to make TV not catch crab and they have made enough good TV. Phil was a great man. To bad his sons are a bunch of losers. Maybe they can be on a new show with Dr Drew new year.

Keep your Dad in your heart boys. I lost my Mom, my Dad and my husband. Holidays are not easy. But memories are never lost. Keep those close to your heart. Make your Dad proud. Josh please remember how your Dad loved you and stay clean. Remember he is watching you. Jake I know your the stronger one, but times are hard for you to, I know. Your Dad was my favorite captain. I never missed a show. He is missed. Just remember there are people out who love you guys and pray for you.
