Before complaining about the market price of Alaska king crab, check out this gripping documentary series, revealing the mortal perils and intense discomfort that fishing crews face on the Bering Sea to catch the delicacy. Those perils include 40-foot waves, 700-pound crab pots that can easily crush a careless crewman, and freezing temperatures around the clock.

There's an area along the edge of the Pacific Northwest known as the "Graveyard of the Pacific" where rapidly changing and harsh weather conditions and dangerous coastal features lead to perilous predicaments for fishermen. The risk doesn't stop them from heading out into Yaquina Bay in their fishing vessels in search of Dungeness crabs. This show in the "Deadliest Catch" franchise shows what it's like for the fishermen who head out into harm's way to try to reel in some of the coveted crabs during Dungeness season. The featured captains include Gary "The Ripper" Ripka, who has more than 35 years of fishing experience under his belt.

When bluefin tuna season ends in Gloucester, Mass., it's just beginning in North Carolina's Outer Banks, a perfect opportunity to pit North vs. South in a pro fisherman contest for the ocean's most lucrative prey. Venturing south are the best crews from Gloucester to take on top local fleets in the treacherous Outer Banks, where the weather is more unpredictable than up north, and the seas can be extremely rough. The Gloucester rod-and-reel vets must master "greensticking" -- trolling artificial squid from a 30-foot fiberglass pole to lure the elusive species to the surface. Top-dollar bluefin can be worth as much as $20,000 each, but a short season and small government catch quota means explosive rivalries surface quickly.

The gold rush in Alaska isn't confined to the state's precious ground. It's taking place on the sea ... or more accurately, on the bottom of the frigid Bering Sea. This series, from the creators of the Emmy-winning "Deadliest Catch," follows four gold dredges and their eccentric and driven crews who risk their lives to find as much gold as possible before winter sets in and it's too dangerous to dive. The custom-built rigs, some barely seaworthy, include an 80-foot barge run by the most successful gold dredger in Nome, Alaska, and a modified skiff that seats only two people.

Don't even try comparing this life-on-the-seas reality show to Discovery's "Deadliest Catch," say a majority of that show's rabid fan base. Yes, the premise is exactly the same -- fishermen risking their lives on harsh waters to bring home an American delicacy -- but those waters for these fishermen is the North Atlantic, and the five captains and their crews battling the elements and sometimes each other are in a quest to capture lobster, no matter how crabby personalities become.
Fishing for bluefin tuna is a way of life for many residents of Gloucester, Mass. "Wicked Tuna" takes viewers into the unrelenting North Atlantic waters infamously spotlighted by the novel-turned-feature film "The Perfect Storm," to follow captains who are relied upon by their families, their shipmates, and by Gloucester itself, to haul in boatloads of the large but elusive bluefin. The pressure to deliver is unforgiving -- the fishing season is short and tuna populations are dwindling -- but one "monstah" catch can reel in just as large of a payday.
