'Deadliest Catch' -- New Captain, MAJOR Tension

4/4/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who took over for Captain Phil Harris on "Deadliest Catch" could really use some sensitivity training ... because dude used Phil's death to rip a crew member ... in front of Phil's TWO SONS.

TMZ has obtained a clip from the upcoming season of "D.C." ... in which Derrick Ray -- the new skipper of the F/V Cornelia Marie -- gets into a serious verbal spat with engineer Steve Ward.

During the fight, Phil's son Jake pleads for the two to make up ... and that's when Ray heartlessly snaps and says,"Phil's not here, he's f**king dead, okay?"

To make things worse ... Phil's other son Josh is also in earshot.

The new season kicks off April 12.

This 'captain' is a prick. It seems to me that he's just looking for a fight. And to say what he did about Phil being f-ing dead, right in front of Phil's sons, was pretty crappy of him! Fire him! He's a jerk!

#5 Those "shrimpy" dudes are the ones who get that tasty ship on your table. People have to learn to respect a person for their profession because we all are linked together somehow.

It looks like they are stressed but they will get over it considering their lives (life) depends on one another.

normally, I roll my eyes at the Harris' leaking their info to TMZ to stay in the 'news', but this time, I'm rolling my eyes at Discovery & I totally agree with you #19/Carl.

"You have no respect for anyone.."
"Phil's not here, he's dead"

Yeah, that's not having respect for anyone.

That is messed up. Losing your father has to be one of the hardest things, and to just rub salt on the wound like that even hurts me.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Many accidents happen way out there in the middle of the Bering Sea. People get hurt, or disappear. Mm hm.

The new captain is screaming about wanting respect?!?!? How about he show some respect to his crew and especially show some respect to the sons of Phil. Regardless of what led up to that temper tantrum his comment about Phil was out of line and bowing up and trying to corner his crew member was also out of line.

All the tv action aside, these crabbers are as tough as they come, and accidents happen all the time. Lots of captains, lots of crews, lots of opportunities. New guy needs to watch his mouth.

I don't know if they would get involved,but I don't think he would get away with pushin John or Andy like that. Capt has to be respected yes, but unless there was more than we know he is just being a mfin bully.
