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” changes the format slightly from “Deadliest Catch”, in that the fishermen head home after their day’s work and the families feature prominently in the story line. The stakes are high, the weather unpredictable – and the stunning Newport scenery, and treacherous “bar” provide a powerful backdrop to the gripping story line, in this new series.
“Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove” premiered 9pm September 13th.
