It was a bittersweet moment of triumph for Captain Redbone and the crew of Miss Hannah on "Big Shrimpin'" (Thu., 10 p.m. EST on History). Captain Redbone set a new personal record with his haul, bringing in a whopping 65,000 pounds. It was enough for more than $200,000 and, perhaps more importantly, he got to take the crown from another ship.

But on the same day that he was setting his own personal best, his father passed away after having suffered a stroke.

"Now I didn't want to see him going like he was going," Captain Redbone said. "The way I seen him went, I hope I never see nobody else go like that."

"Big Shrimpin'" airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. EST on The History Channel.
