Cornelia Marie back on Deadliest Catch Season 14?

The F/V Cornelia marie has not been on Deadliest Catch Season 13, which has made the fans pretty sad, to put it mildly. But in one comment on the Facebook page of the Cornelia Marie, some admin of the page wrote the following:

“A year off isn’t so bad, stay tuned for next season…you never know who might appear.”


Does that mean that the Cornelia Marie will be back on Deadliest Catch Season 14? We sure hope so! 

It would be great to see Captain Casey and Josh Harris back on the show.

What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments below.

Deadliest Catch Season 13 - What's new?

So Season 13 is almost there - but what is new in this season?

Will the Cornelia Marie be back on Deadliest Catch Season 13?

Sadly, there will be no Cornelia Marie in this season. Apparently, Discovery has decided not to film aboard the Cornelia Marie. Hence, Josh Harris won't be on this season, either. But - as some online sources say - Josh is up to something and might be on your TV soon, just not on Deadliest Catch.

This will be the last season of Deadliest Catch for Johnathan Hillstrand

As has been reported, this year's season of Deadliest Catch will be the last one for Johnathan Hillstrand - not only on the Deadliest Catch, but also on the Time Bandit.

Sig Hansen might retire, too

As some sources report, Sig Hansen - who suffered a heart attack last year - might also retire from fishing alltogether. What does that mean for the Northwestern, though? Will it be run by his brother Edgar? We don't know yet, but maybe you would like to share your thoughts about this in the comments section below this article.

Deadliest Catch 2016 - The final stretch

Well folks, it's almost time for this year's Season 12 of Deadliest Catch! We have all been waiting for a good while, wondering about the new things that might come with this season.

Discovery and the vessels' crews have been very quiet about everything, so I am expecting some good changes. :)

Here are some of my thoughts for the new season.

Really great ideas for Deadliest Catch 2016

I know that many of you have had some really great ideas for the 2016 season, and many fans have submitted their ideas on our website. You can read them all here.

A lot of the viewers/ fans would love to see more of the operations that are going on around the whole crabbing business. User "Lou" asked "How much is being paid for fuel, bait and maintenance?". That is a good question, and I hope Discovery picks that one up and shows us a little more about the costs involved in running a crab boat. Lou also asked Discovery to show how much each individual crew member spends on the preparation of a trip, for example for food and tobacco.

Our visitor Alan Kania suggested to focus more on the people of Unalaska/ Dutch Harbor. I would love to see that, too. Many of the fans know some Unalaska people (for example Veda Webb) from Facebook or the Unalaska Police Blotter (by Sgt. Jennifer Shockley). I would love to see Discovery show more of the Unalaska people - because they are a big part of what makes this show possible. 

Less drama, please

Apparently, I am not alone when I say that less drama would be good for the show. I think that everybody struggles every now and then, but in the recent years, Deadliest Catch has become more and more of a little drama show on some vessels. Let me just say "Jake Anderson on the Kiska Sea" or "Elliott Neese and his personal life". Seriously, I know that we are watching (at least a part) their real lives, and therefore a part of their real struggles. But we did not start out as soap opera fans. We started becoming fans of hard working, mostly cigarette smoking, swearing tough crabbers. We didn't ask for any of the drama. I believe that Discovery could cut out more of the drama and listen more to its viewers and their ideas.

Many people ask for more information on the crews' family

As much as I understand this, I believe it is best for "our stars" to keep their families out of the show as much as they can. We wouldn't want Sig's daughter to become the next Kardashian, do we? I think we should respect their privacy - and that of their families.

More episodes

Yep, many, many fans requested this. We want to see more of Deadliest Catch. Our visitor Laura Taylor wrote in "More episodes, interviews at the end of the season, no more Elliot, bring back junior." 

Okay, Elliott is gone. Interviews we will get, I am sure. Junior - I guess - won't be back. But I will definately put my signature under the "more episodes" part. Yes, I know, Discovery will start Dungeon Cove - a Deadliest Catch spin-off. But that is not the same. We want to see the Hillstrand brothers, Wild Bill and the others. While  am sure that Dungeon Cove will be successful and maybe last really long, I think it might not be the same for us DC fans.

So yeah, Discovery: Please give us more episodes of the original Deadliest Catch.

Deadliest Catch Bloopers

Oh yes! That is one thing I would definately love to see. Our visitor Nisse Edwards has sent in this idea: "More bloopers and camera crew experiences". I know for a fact that I wouldn't survive such an experience for longer than an hour, so I know that the crews on board are tough guys and girls. And I am not talking about the vessel crews. I am talking about the camera crews! 

So please bring us some "Best crew moments" of Deadliest Catch. That would be really cool!

Well, I guess there are many different opinions on what should be changed and what should remain unchanged. To make it short: I would go for less drama, keep the families out of the show and show us more episodes. That would make a lot of people happy.

And until we get the new 2016 season, we are all going to watch reruns, right? Or what are you doing?

Let us know in the comments!



Deadliest Catch Season 12 (2016) - Great ideas from the fans

While millions of Deadliest Catch fans are waiting for the start of the new 2016 Season 12 of the hit TV series, they are thinking of what they would like to see on the new episodes.

Great ideas sent in by great fans

Stay simple, focus on the fishing

Many of the fans simply would like the show to return to where it came from: Fishing. People would love to see less personal drama and more of the teaming up of the vessel crews and simply fishing.

Over the last years, the personal stories of Elliott Neese and sometimes even Jake Anderson have had many fans switch channels when they started with their drama shows. Let's just hope that this new year will be better.

More technical stuff - cameras on the crab pots

Fans also submitted that they would like to see more of the boats, more technical information and more cams where they have not been before. FOr example, people would love to see cameras put on the crab pots when they soak at the bottom of the sea.

Freddy Maugatai speaks out about missing the trip with the Wizard

I am sure you all remember the episode where Freddy Maugatai missed the trip with Monty Colburn on the F/V Wizard. 

We have asked Freddy about the reasons, and he has replied :)

We have received the following statement from Freddy Maugatai:

That night I talked to my wife she was due for our second baby the next week. I didn't think we would be done fishing by then. I said life is too short, because it is. I could not miss my baby girl be born. I love Monty, meant no disrespect, but I love my baby daughter more.

Thank you Freddy :)

Jake Anderson to captain the F/V Saga

From TVRuckus

As reports, Jake Anderson will be taking over the wheelhouse of the F/V Saga in tonight's new episode of Deadliest Catch!

But the timing could be better, as Jake and his wife Jenna are expecting their baby - new chances and a lot of nerve-wrecking waiting at the same time. 

And it looks like there will be a greenhorn getting hurt really bad. Looks like it's going to be one exciting episode today.

Captain Elliott Neese leaves Deadliest Catch

Well folks, this is it. After Elliott told us about this the night before the episode aired, we have published the news here that we might be seeing the last episode of Elliott Neese on Deadliest Catch.   

We have taken some bashing via private messages and emails for publishing rumours, but honestly: We know were our rumour came from (Elliott himself), so I'd say that was a pretty reliable source.

So Elliott Neese is not on Deadliest Catch anymore - but after the recording of the show last year, he went through rehab is on a good way.

We're still trying to get Elliott to do a Q&A on our website (which he said he will do) - so stay tuned for more information.

Best way to make sure you don't miss this is to register for a free account now, so you will get an email when we kow the Q&A date.

Read more information about Elliott Neese leaving Deadliest Catch (including discussion)  


Email from FreemantleMedia

I have received an email from FreemantleMedia, the owner of the copyrights to Deadliest Catch.

They made it clear that I should put up a message on this website saying that this is just a Deadliest Catch fan website and not an official website.

That's the reason why I have put the (red) text into our website's logo banner - so nobody would ever mistake this awful looking website for any official website of FreemantleMedia, Original Productions or Discovery. :D

Honestly: I do not want to get into any trouble with anybody. This is a fan community. And I am not trying to make money from this.

This is just for fun - and I intend to keep it that way. :)

Thanks for the fair warning, FreemantleMedia! I really do appreciate it! :)

Deadliest Catch under fire in Unalaska

From TheBristolBayTimes

The Deadliest Catch is under attack from both the local and state government.

In a move to offset what is seen by some as a negative public image created by the Deadliest Catch reality television show, and to encourage oil company workers to make permanent homes locally, the Unalaska City Council is giving money to an Anchorage advertising firm to promote a wholesome image.

The $15,000 expenditure is for a media and information packet created by Northwest Strategies, and substantially more funding is expected later to promote Unalaska in Alaska, Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. The ad campaign was recommended by a local committee including the mayor, planning director, and Assistant City Manager Patrick Jordan, who complains the Deadliest Catch presents a "fishing town with a bar problem."

The city government wants the outside world to know there's more to life in Unalaska than getting drunk. The 10-year-old Discovery Channel show, with 5 million viewers, depicts life on Bering Sea commercial crab boats working out of Unalaska/Dutch Harbor.

"Unfortunately, due in no small part to reality television, Unalaska is known for an image that is not truly representative of the community and its vast potential as an industry hub," said Northwest Strategies' proposal.

Fisherman Sean O'Callahan found dead in Bunk

Sean O'Callahan DeadThough Troopers are still awaiting autopsy results from the state medical examiner, their investigation revealed nothing suspicious aboard a Kodiak fishing vessel where a crewman was found dead Saturday morning.

A little after 11 a.m. On Saturday, Troopers were notified by the skipper of the fishing vessel Alaskan Dream that 29-year-old Sean O'Callahan was found dead in his bunk.

The Alaskan Dream was headed to fishing grounds near the south end of Kodiak Island, but turned around to meet Troopers back in Kodiak and turn over O'Callahan's body. It was then sent to Anchorage for an autopsy.

The Troopers conducted an investigation on board the Alaskan Dream and in their report say nothing suspicious was observed. It appears O'Callahan passed away in his sleep sometimes during the night.

O'Callahan's mother posted to her son's Facebook page that she would be scattering some of his ashes in Kodiak waters and more in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, with dates to be announced.


Crabber sues Time Bandit over fireworks injury

As the USNews reports (Link), David Zielinski, Deckhand on the Time Bandit in season 9, sues the Time Bandit over injuries he suffered from one of the Time Bandit-brand firworks which, as he said, exploded prematurely.

Zielinski suffered shattered bones in his right hand and forearm and has been taken to Dutch Harbor and then flown to Seattle for treatment.

Court papers say the effects of the accident are hurting Zielinski financially. Time Bandit and New Era Alaska Inc. are named as defendants.

New Website Moderator! :)

Hello everyone! :D

I just thought that I should introduce myself...

My name is Chiane (like "shy-ann"). Some people will know me as Chiane Ilene Bond on Facebook and Twitter.

Of course, I am a huge fan of Deadliest Catch. I started watching the show sometime during season 4 or 5. One day, I was bored and needed something fun to watch. Started channel surfing & evetually came to a station that showed a black & white boat crashing through a wave. I thought to myself "Oooo! That looks like an awesome show!" I've been hooked ever since! :)

I've had the awesome privledge of meeting many of the guys from the show. I've even been to have seen or been aboard a few of the DC boats. What an AWESOME experience that is! If you ever get the chance to meet any of the guys, do it! It's always a fun time. :)

I like all of the boats - each in their own ways. The same goes for all of the crews.

A lot of people have asked me, "Have you ever been to Alaska?" Yes! I have! Twice actually. Once back in 2010 for a cruise for my high school graduation present & again this past summer for work. I spent 3 months in Dillingham, AK working as a seafood processor. AND I know some are going to ask... haha "Did you see any of the DC boats or crews?" Yep! Cornelia Marie, Rollo & Saga along with the crews for the CM & Rollo. I only got to see the Saga from a distance but it was AWESOME just to see anybody. :)

I think that's enough about me for now......

Thanks Chris for bringing me on to help you out! :D WOO HOO! :)


Have a great day everyone! :D

Your submissions for Deadliest Catch Season 11 - and what we don't want to see

Photo of Elliott Neese by Lady Washinton We have asked for your ideas for Deadliest Catch Season 11. And you have sent them in.

What we wanted was a clear view on what you, the viewers and fans, want for Deadliest Catch Season 11. Our goal was to collect them and make them available to the producers of the show.

A few of your submissions weren't (partially) quite what we were looking for. Of course, everybody has their loved and "hated" captains, and for sure Keith and Elliott are amongst those who polarize the most. But seeing people post something like the following really makes me rethink this whole "submit your ideas" thing.

Lisa G. wrote: "Get rid of Elliot and the Saga, that guy is an idiot."

I don't think calling someone an idiot is pretty harsh. Calling him an idiot without even knowing him at all (just from TV) is just plain rude. 

As the owner of this website, I took the freedom to edit the submission. I will not tolerate any name calling on this website. You may hear the beeps on the show when these guys are out crab hunting, and you know that they are swearing their rear ends off.
But in their off-season, they are just normal people, dads, family guys. They actually have pretty good manners. And feelings, too. I am sure that Elliott is actually a nice guy, but that the show has somehow put him in a position where the good parts don't get through too much. He's shown his fair share of drama, yes. But that makes him just a guy who has had his struggles with life on and off the boat.

To make this short: If I catch any other user/member of this website insulting other members or the crew of Deadliest Catch, I will kick your hind end off this platform faster than you can say "Oh crab" :)

Just say'n.




Film crews are working on Deadliest Catch Season 11

Yes, it's true. We have proof that there are film crews up in Dutch Harbor to film "The Bait"!

If that isn't a great sign of the Deadliest Catch Season 11... :D

No word on Deadliest Catch Season 11 yet

We have just asked the producers, and there is no word on Season 11 of Deadliest Catch yet. Cross your fingers and let Discovery know that you WANT Season 11 to be made :)


There we have our update! Film crew are working in Dutch Harbor!


Next VIP chat session

Around May 16, we will have another VIP chat session with a Deadliest Catch crew member. 

Who will it be? Well, we won't tell the name yet :)

Let's just say he's a deckhand on a family owned boat. 

Stay tuned! We'll publish the exact date and time very soon. Oh yeah, and we will let you know who it is :D


What do YOU want to see in Season 11?

Season 11 will be filmed this year, so we want to make sure the producers of the show know what you, the viewer, would like to see on the show?

What could they do better? What are your ideas?

Let us know here:

We are BIG :)

And by big, I mean BIG!

We have grown huge over the past weeks and months, and I believe we can say that we are now the biggest active Deadliest Catch Fan Website worldwide!

At the time of writing, we have about 500 members who signed up on this website. I think this is a great number, and I believe we will get even bigger once the new Deadliest Catch Season 10 will start airing in April 2014!

I would like to say Thank You for joining this community!!

A little history

I would have never thought that this website might grow this big. It all started out as a small and very simple website to display the live webcams from Dutch Harbor. But soon I realized that this was more than a simple webcam website... 

Why a fan website?

Well, honestly: I was searching the web for a decent website to get good information on my favorite TV show (yes, you guessed it: "The Deadliest Catch" :)).

As I was unable to find any really active website, I thought I might just start one myself. Being a web developer, that wasn't too hard, so I started a new website from scratch a while back. I was hoping to make it simple... like just set up a blog software and have guest writers write some posts containing useful information regarding The Deadliest Catch.

But is has become a project that pretty much scales up and up each week. I have a lot of ideas for the future, and I hope I get the chance to make most of them come true. Since I'm working on this website in my free time, this might take a while :)

Giving back to you

In cooperation with one of the captains, I will soon have a little something for you! It's gonna be fun, and you will like it! But I won't tell you any more... If you want to make sure you get the information once I'm ready to publish it: Sign up for a free account. I'm gonna send out an email to all of you once we're good to go.

Just one more thing

Well, of course I have to be bitchy about something, right? :D 

I would like to ask you to have a look at our live chat! Chat with other Deadliest Catch fans from all over the world and have fun teaming up and discussing. The chat has been pretty empty the last few weeks... so if you're joining the chat, wait for a bit, someone will come. Don't give up after a few minutes. :)
