When Cold Water Cowboys returns for Season 4 on April 18, fans will notice a few new faces on the decks. Lifelong fisherman and son, Calvin and Kurtis Kerrivan, along with fourth-generation Skipper Lee Pond, join the cast alongside returning cast members Rick Crane, Morris Anstey, and Paul Tiller for an all-new, eight-episode season.
The popular Canadian series follows the brotherhood of five colourful captains and their crews aboard fishing boats, as they cast their nets in the North Atlantic hundreds of miles offshore battling against all odds to land some of the biggest and most lucrative catches in series history.
Here’s a sneak peek at episode highlights from Season 4:
“Ice, Ice, and More Ice” – Tuesday, April 18 at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT.
Off the east coast of Newfoundland, the crew of the Atlantic Bandit heads into the world’s deadliest ocean. Following his intuition, Captain Paul Tiller takes his crew to a new fishing spot that is further out to sea than they have ever ventured. In this particular area, the weather is rougher and the ocean is treacherous. But with crab going for record prices, Tiller thinks it’s a risk worth taking.
Southwest in Cox’s Cove, the Crane’s Legacy is running two days behind the rest of the crab fishing fleet. Over the summer, Skipper Rick Crane suddenly lost his father to cancer and is still reeling from the shock.
Back on the east coast, Morris Anstey is steaming the Sebastian Sails straight into Iceberg Alley. Anstey has fished crab in this area before, but never this early in the season, and never facing such icy conditions.
“Jeepers Creepers” Tuesday, April 25 at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT
Up in Iceberg Alley, Skipper Morris Anstey and the crew of the Sebastian Sails are in a sea of trouble. So far, this crab season has brought them nothing but grief with no sign of reprieve. With his crab pots empty and his crew losing patience, the skipper must come up with a plan to change their luck – and fast.
On the west coast, the Crane’s Legacy is well into the most punishing halibut season the crew has ever encountered. Unprecedented rough weather has compromised their catch. Desperate to make his quota before the fishery closes, Captain Rick Crane pushes his crew beyond all limits.
On the opposite side of the island, Skipper Paul Tiller brings an unwelcome guest aboard the Atlantic Bandit – proving this crab trip is the most difficult and dangerous journey of his career.
The new season will air Tuesdays on Discovery at 10:00 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT beginning on April 18 and will also be available on Discovery Go.
