Deadliest Catch Season 5 Premiere Brings More Questions Than It Answers

deadliest catchWant to know which boat sinks on the Deadliest Catch season 5? Want to know what happens to Phil Harris from the Cornelia Marie? You’ve come to the right place.

The fifth season premiere of Deadliest Catch sure led you to believe that Keith Colburn and The Wizard sink this season, but I am happy to tell you that it does not.  As I mentioned in an earlier post in regards to this season, a cod fishing ship, the Katami, was lost in the same area that all the crab ships were in.  The ship went down and there were 4 survivors, but sadly 5 fisherman lost their lives back in October.

As for Captain Phil Harris, he does miss King Crab season, but reports are that he returns in time for opilio season.  There has been no word on what happens with his blood clots, but seeing as he did listen to his doctor for the first half of the season, it’s probably safe to assume that he is cleared health wise when he comes back.

Sadly there are no other Deadliest Catch season 5 spoilers at this time that I know of, but here are images of all of this year’s crews.

    THE BEST SEASON PREMIERE EVER! It was full of suspense, emotional and of course boost your adredaline, you keep up with this guys lifes in some ways you welcome them to yours and if one of them is hurt or sick you get worried and if they make a good catch you get all excited, Is an awesome program, And even shows the value of life (is so delicate, and they risk them for survive and provide to they'r famillies)

    Just an update to wrong info, the katami did sink however was not in the crab boat area. The coast guard copter went for 9 hours through the night and reached the scene 600 miles from the base.

    Captain Phil will be missed by many fans. And I'm sure one of them. It's almost like loosing a friend. After all, the guy spent several years visiting me "in my livingroom" once a week via TV. I'm glad that Discovery Channel did this show, because not only did it preserve his legacy for us (and I'm sure even moreso people like Jake and Josh) to be able to see him whenever we want, but so many people would never know who this rugged fisherman was without it.
