Deadliest Catch Season 17 is soon returning with Episode 18 as we slowly head towards the season finale. The show first started airing back in 2005, and ever since then, the show has reached its Season 17. Deadliest Catch follows crab fishermen as they head into the Bering Sea during the crab fishing season. They are usually on the hunt for Alaskan King Crab and Snow Crab and most prominently operate around the Aleutian Islands port of Dutch Harbor. Produced by Discovery Channel subsidiary, Original Productions, Deadliest Catch is titled after the great risk the fishermen go through during their line of work.
Deadliest Catch is going through a lot of changes as the canneries have unexpectedly made changes to the delivery rules. This has caused the captains to go at each other in a race against time. They must try their best to reach the front of the line. During this, Jake makes a daring decision as he heads into St. Paul Harbor. Here, Jonathan had come to seek help from Wild Bill. In the meantime, Josh and Casey have bet their season. Now it all depends on a deep set at the Russian Line.
