‘Deadliest Catch’ Season 13: Tragedy, Drama, And Is It End For Two Captains?

Discovery has announced that the Deadliest Catch Season 13 will be returning on April 11. This is the final season for at least one captain, possibly two. Compound it with the emotional tragedy of the Destination and temperatures that are four degrees warmer than last year, means that keeping focused and finding the crab is tougher than before. Captain Sig Hansen appears to be back, but for how long? Captain Jonathan Hillstrand? It appears that the weather has become dramatically warmer, four degrees warmer than last season. It matters a great deal as any of the previous crab hotspots are now gone. The crab have moved to new, more comfortable locations, and the captains, who are under pressure to achieve quotas, need to use all of their skills and instincts to figure out where the crab are located.

‘Deadliest Catch’ Season 13: Sig Hansen to do cameo appearance to help ratings of the show?

Season 13 of the reality series “Deadliest Catch” will be one of the toughest seasons yet. Rumors are swirling that FV Time Bandit is also out of the show and it forces Captain Sig Hansen to make cameo appearances to help in the ratings. Suddenly the real-life adventures of fishermen from Alaska have turned into a battle for survival for the show itself. Captain Josh Harris of the FV Cornelia Marie has decided to cut ties with the show as Discovery do not see his storyline generating interest. It is not clear though if indeed Captain Jonathan Hillstrand and the Time Bandit got cut from the show. But Captain Bill Wichrowski of FV Cape Caution told A V Club that if the show does not renew Hansen and the Time Bandit, the show loses a lot in viewership. Read the story here 15:44

F/V Cornelia Marie will not be featured on “Deadliest Catch” Season 13

cornelia-marieFrom Josh Harris – Thank you to all for your patience. I had a family matter to attend to, so I have had to leave the boat to come home and take care of a few things. First and foremost, we want to thank everybody for all of your messages and wishes. The Cornelia Marie captains and crew really appreciate and are humbled by your outpouring of support. I am here today to set things straight in regards to the filming of Season 13 of Deadliest Catch. The Cornelia Marie and her crew are making their way out to the fishing grounds today. We do not have a camera crew aboard this king crab season. This was not our decision, and it was not made by the owners nor the captains of the Cornelia. This was not a dispute over money, this was simply a decision made by production Discovery. They have creative control over pretty much everything that airs on Deadliest Catch, and we respect that. We are fishermen and we will be doing what we love to do this king crab season, but we will be doing it alone. Video, Read the rest here 12:41
