Deadliest Catch Sneak Peek: Josh Harris Gambles On His Late Father's Hot Spot

In this exclusive sneak peek at this week’s Deadliest Catch, morale aboard the Cornelia Marie is lower than an opilio’s belly dragging along the bottom of the Bering Sea.

Neophyte captain Josh Harris has dropped a string of crab pots at his late father Phil’s former hot spot, only to find that, er, it ain’t so hot anymore. “Just because his old man crabbed here back in the day,” grouses a deckhand, “doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s still crab here.”

Does the skipper’s luck change? If you don’t want to wait to find out from Tuesday night’s episode of the Discovery hit (9/8c), which is preceded by a new Deadliest Catch: The Bait (8/7c), just click on the video above.

After you’ve watched the clip — and c’mon, we both know you’re gonna! — hit the comments: Could you handle the pressure of hauling blanks as your crew got more and more disgruntled?
