Deadliest Catch kicks off the season with its 200th episode - a strong reminder that these captains have spent years doing the deadliest job in the world… and surviving. Surviving the seas, surviving their demons, and surviving each other.
Josh Harris, with partner Casey McManus, returns aboard the beloved Cornelia Marie to fish in his father’s footsteps, completing the fleet. Putting his health scares behind him, Captain Sig Hansen is back with a vengeance and a whole new strategy to keep The Northwestern as the top producer on the Bering Sea. However, hard-charging veteran and “crabbiest” of the captains, Keith Colburn on the Wizard has his own plans to sweep the top spot in the crab count.
Jake Anderson and the Saga have more quota than anyone in the fleet, and for Jake, this is the year he finally steps out of Sig’s shadow and puts himself on the board alongside the veterans. On the Brenna A, young Captain Sean Dwyer is taking on his biggest King Crab quota yet, but he leased it out from under ‘Wild’ Bill Wichrowski and his brand-new boat, Summer Bay. And that’s after he hired Bill’s son Zach Larson to be his engineer.
With new strategies and new drive, the focus is on the fishing. The crab quota has been increased by the millions and for now, the future for our crews looks bright.
