The Time Bandit draws good numbers in its last pots of the season and meets its quota, but must traverse the dangerous False Pass to get to their processor in Akutan. The Northwestern offloads its last king crab, then goes off to St. Matthew’s Island to hunt blue king crab for an extra payday, but empty pots only bring regrets and drama. Captain Bill continues to suffer low crew morale on the Kodiak as they hit bad weather and continue to hit bad fishing. When deck boss Adam cops an attitude again, Bill has to lay down the law with him one last time. The Cornelia Marie is still suffering some bad fishing. When Jake Harris starts to get lazy and distracted, Captain Phil has to straighten out his more experienced son, ironically soon after praising him for the cameras. As the episode ends, the Time Bandit, top heavy with pots as it races for port, faces a rogue wave at False Pass…
Deadliest Catch is a reality television series produced by Original Productions for the Discovery Channel. It portrays the real life events aboard fishing vessels in the Bering Sea during the Alaskan king crab, snow crab and bairdi crab fishing seasons.
The Aleutian Islands port of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, is the base of operations for the fishing fleet. The show's title derives from the inherent high risk of injury or death associated with the work.
Deadliest Catch premiered on the Discovery Channel on April 12, 2005, and currently airs in over 200 countries. The first season consisted of ten episodes, with the finale airing on June 14, 2005. Subsequent seasons have aired on the same April to June or July schedule every year since the original 2005 season. The 12th season premiered on March 29, 2016.
