Deadliest Catch


The new series begins with deadly dropping temperatures, and it’s all the fleet can do to knock off vast plates of ice and dump their frozen crab pots before the boats capsize. But there’s no time for rest, and the Cornelia Marie gambles by heading for the Bering Sea’s most difficult fishing grounds. But can Captain Phil relive his glory days by pulling in a big haul?

Then a deckhand suffers a heart attack, and the Coast Guard attempt a rescue in huge seas and 30-knot winds, with low fuel and in poor visibility. But the whole season is overshadowed by events on the Cornelia Marie. First Captain Phil is shocked when his son makes a startling revelation, and then he falls ill and is rushed in a critical condition to hospital, while his two sons Josh and Jake tear strips off each other. Will there be reconciliation before loses his fight for life?
