The show chronicles 4 families that fish for Dungeness crab in the treacherous, beautiful and rugged Oregon Coast. The show follows Newport locals; Marc Sehlbach; Mikey Retherford, Jr.; Chris Retherford; Gary Ripka, his son, Kenny Ripka; and Jonny Law.
“Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove” is slightly different in format from “Deadliest Catch”, in that the fishermen go home after their day’s work and the families feature prominently in their story line. The stakes are high, the weather unpredictable, and the fishermen must cross the treacherous “bar” as they go out, and again when they come back.
The stunning Newport, Oregon scenery is stunning, and the story lines gripping, in this new series.
“Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove” premieres 9pm September 13th.
