Original Air Date: April 12, 2005

Season: 1

Crab Count: 0

SYNOPSIS: It's the first day of work at the world's deadliest job. Approximately 1,500 fishermen and 250 boats have converged on Dutch Harbor, Alaska, for the 2005 Alaskan king crab season. Each individual -- old salts and greenhorns alike -- is here to stake his claim on the 14 million pounds of crab that the season is expected to yield, and the chance to earn a year's wages in just one week. To that end, each boat's captain has his own strategy for success.

With a radio countdown, the season begins and the first pots are dumped into the sea. It will be many hours before all the pots are set and even longer before anyone rests. But soon after the start, the stabilizer breaks on one of the boats, forcing its crew to fish with a potentially deadly problem. For others, it's fish guts and crab pots as they desperately grasp for their piece of the $80 million king crab pie.

  • On the Lucky Lady the season has started but their stabilizing wing is stuck in the water and no pots can be launched until it is brought on board. The crew manages to wrestle the boom aboard but the metal wing is lost leaving the smallest boat in the fleet in for a bumpier ride.
