Scott Campbell Jr is 45 years as of now, April 15, 2020. He is a second-generation fisherman and was the captain of the Seabrooke, which he co-owns with his dad for the first four seasons of the show, Deadliest Catch.
A debilitating back injury put him out of the fishing business and had him retire early from fishing. Scott had multiple back surgeries to try and rectify his problem, but he was still unable to continue captaining the Seabrooke.
He left the life at sea and went on to start a Cooler manufacturing business, the Cordova Company, based out of Nampa, Idaho. The company produces roto-molded iceboxes that are foam-injected.
The Mastercraft boat company also decided they wanted in on his idea because it was born when Scott was on a Mastercraft boat. Today, the Cordova cooler box is an option one can have when purchasing a new Mastercraft boat.
Scott Jr also wrote a book entitled, Giving The Finger: Risking It All To Fish The World’s Deadliest Sea, which chronicles his fishing experiences at the Bering Sea with his dad.

What happened to Scott Campbell Jr? Why did he leave the show, Deadliest Catch?
Scott Campbell Jr. had a chronic back injury that wouldn’t go away during his first four seasons on the Deadliest Catch, despite having multiple surgeries. Life on the boat got so miserable and debilitating that Scott chose to retire early from his fishing career.
He then sought out to start a cooler manufacturing business that picked up pretty well. Scott interviewed a local news outlet KIVITV and explained where the idea for Cordova coolers came from.
He said that one day during a fishing expedition, his pals bet him that he couldn’t make a better cooler than the one they had in their Mastercraft boat, that didn’t do a good enough job of keeping things fresh. Scott decided that he would prove them wrong and make his cooler box that was much better, and that’s how his company began.
He, however, announced on a post in September 2018 that he would be returning to the show once again in its 16th season. However, it is not known if Campbell Jr. will return to captain his boat Seabrooke, which is now on sale at Dock Street Boaters, or their new ship the Lady Alaska.
