After a weak performance last year, the Cornelia Marie is looking for a comeback.

Mechanical problems and faulty gear put the boat behind the rest of the fleet. Adding to that, Josh's unsure leadership resulted in a long grind of a season. However, the boat was not without its successes. They managed to meet their quota (thanks to a Hail Mary call by Josh to fish near the ice), and Josh gained some invaluable time at the helm.

Josh and Casey are hoping a $1 million overhaul to the ship will help put the boat back on even footing. With the boat all dialed-in, the co-captains not only want to meet their increased quota; they want to outperform the rest of the fleet.
