In the past, Discovery’s blog ‘Inside the Catch’ let us in on some of the ‘inside’ goings on of ‘Deadliest Catch’ but now it appears they’ll be giving us monthly updates on what is happening up in Dutch Harbor and out at sea! This month’s update is on new boats and Captain Phil. Apparently we’ll be seeing a or some new fishing vessels in season 5 and we get a teaser on Phil Harris.
Just to let you know….According to the Cornelia Marie website, Capt. Phil did indeed head up to Dutch Harbor earlier this month, the question remains however…Is he fishing? As for the boats? Please read on and tune into Deadliest Reports later as we’ll have a new section for season 5 news and we’ll discuss the ‘talk on the docks’….
The Boats Are Back!
King crab season has begun! October 15 is the official start of this year’s season. The Northwestern, Time Bandit, Cornelia Marie and the Wizard are docked, stocked and ready to roll from Dutch Harbor for the fifth television season of Deadliest Catch. Look for new boats to join them on the big, bad Bering. (You’ll get more on them later.) Expect 16 episodes starting in April along with a new companion Web series, right here, to bring you another side of the Catch.
We know you want to know much more and we’ll be bringing you updates monthly until April 2009. So, stay tuned, bookmark this blog, share it on Facebook or Dig it; whatever you need to do to stay abreast of the latest Deadliest Catch news.
By the way, many of you have asked about Phil. He’s been meeting with his doctor for regular check-ups. Will he be back this season? You’ll have to wait and see….
