In the far northern reaches of the planet a rare breed of extreme fishermen hunt the Bering Sea. Adventure is their call, crab is their prey, and a one hundred million dollar plunder is their reward. Skippers and their crews endure boat killing storms and body crushing working conditions — risking it all on the search for crab. In the end, they will all come to the realization that the most violent storms come from within.
The five veteran boats all faced challenges with crews and skippers — who will lead now and in the future; and who will be tough enough to weather the storms of the heart.
Two new boats joined the fleet in the 2011 season. Dubbed "the floating frat house," the Ramblin' Rose introduced a young, rowdy crew skippered by Elliott Neese, all of 28 years old, and already boasting about his fishing prowess. Seabrooke Captain Scott Campbell Jr., 36, added youth and cockiness as well, but behind the steely confidence, Junior is still haunted by the loss of a deckhand at sea. Can he battle back and conquer his demons?
