The Deadliest Catch Season 5 DVD set takes you deep into the world of the Bering Sea — as we follow seven vessels and their crews through the most brutal fishing seasons on the planet - Red King Crab and Opilio Crab. Forty-foot waves, hurricane winds, sleep deprivation, and operating heavy machinery on a pitching deck, are just a few reasons the injury rate is one hundred percent. The rugged adventurers in Deadliest Catch DVDs, who fish these waters are the real deal. Crabbers have the mindset of pirates - high risk for high reward - and putting life and limb on the line is just part of the job.
The crabbing season kicks off in October. Captain Sig Hansen, a 30-year veteran and a third generation fisherman, will match his skills against his old rivals, Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie, the Hillstrand brothers of the Time Bandit, and Captain Keith Colburn of the Wizard. The fleet will push hundreds of miles out to sea and fish four hundred feet deep in search of the prized crustaceans. The captains will strategize, and the crews will be pushed to their limits of mental and physical endurance as they repeatedly drop and haul the 700-pound crab pots. Before the season is out, the men will face down huge storms, severe injury, a ticking clock — and each other — to bring in the King crab harvest.
Three new boats join the fray. The 78-ft Lisa Marie, the smallest boat in the fleet, will battle waves that seem to swallow the vessel. Aboard the Incentive, a team of old salts can't find the crab. While on the Trailblazer, a crew is haunted by a near-fatal incident from a few years ago — when a man went overboard only to be narrowly saved by Capt. Jonathan Hillstrand.
