Blayze decides to spice up the crab season with a fun competition for his crew, while Walter spends his time dealing with mechanical troubles.
It’s mid season, and Blayze decides to have a fun competition for his crew to see who picks the best fishing spots. Meanwhile, first year captain Walter gets the worst vessel in the fleet, and struggles to keep it running through a series of mechanical problems. The Captains and crew don’t make money if their boats are not on the water. Complicating life for both, the protected Right Whales are moving into the fishing area, forcing fishers to pull their traps from the water and threatening to cut the season short.
