What is Bill Wichrowski's Net Worth?

Bill Wichrowski is a commercial fisherman and reality television star who has a net worth of $3 million. "Wild" Bill Wichrowski earned his net worth from his work as a commercial fisherman and for his role on the documentary/reality television series Deadliest Catch.

The adventures take place on the Bering Sea; the base of operations for the fishing boats is located in The Aleutian Islands port of Dutch Harbor, Unalaska, Alaska. The show gets its name from the inherent risk of serious injury or even death associated with this sport.

In the off-season, he and his wife, Karen Gillis, live in their home in Sonora, San Carlos, Mexico and he enjoys sport fishing, travel, horseback riding, NASCAR, and golf.
