Sig and the boys are coming back April 14, and the Bering Sea is one badass bitch this season.
The fearless captains are back! What will be seen are more massive storms, including a super typhoon and new regulations will change all the rules.
With great risks come even greater opportunities – and for those willing to put it all on the line, it means an even bigger payoff. From Original Productions, the 13-time Emmy Award-winning series Deadliest Catch returns for its 11th season on Tuesday, April 14 at 9 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel.
After years of keeping a lid on Bairdi crab quota, new government regulations have increased the inventory by 400 percent. These changes mean the potential for huge paydays for Captains and crew. But it’s first come, first serve on the Bairdi grounds, forcing everyone to risk it all to grab their piece of the bounty.
“This year is going to be a race – get through King Crab and start the Bairdi. We don’t have time to make mistakes. First guy on the Bairdi ground is going to have the best chance to get crab before it gets picked over,” said Captain Sig Hansen.
On the Northwestern, the Bairdi bump will see the brothers Hansen, both Sig and Edgar war a bit over their business. Watch for deckhand Jake Anderson to prove to the world – and himself – his worth as an earner.
On the Cornelia Marie, Josh Harris is trying to step out of his father’s shadow, the late Capt. Phil Harris, and earn the respect of his crew.
We will catch up with Wild Bill of the Cape Caution, plus Time Bandit’s Johnathan Hillstrand must rise above many issues and massive boat repair bills. The Wizard’s Captain Keith Colburn and Captain Elliott Neese are back too.
Also returning this season is “The Bait,” a series of one-hour pre-shows, beginning at 8 PM E/P on April 14. “The Bait” will provide an inside look at the episode ahead, and the captains themselves will talk fishing, drama and what to expect on that night’s episode of Deadliest Catch, plus their fansite will be more engaging than ever before.
