DESCRIPTION: (from The Weather Channel's press release, May 2014) "Cold Water Captains" ventures hundreds of miles offshore in the perilous North Atlantic with six fishing crews, facing swells as tall as houses and icebergs the size of small cities. It's a dangerous job with countless challenges and ferocious weather - all of which are tough on the boats, tough on gear, tough on the human body. Plagued by hurricanes and icebergs, mechanical failures or damaged gear, and the uncertainty of just where exactly the catch is hiding, every day is a high-stakes game. But the goal is always the same: fill the hatch and make money - as much and as fast as possible. Hometown pride and friendly competition rule the day, but when push comes to shove, they're all part of the same fiercely-protective fishermen's fraternity.
