“Cold Water Cowboys” Fight Against Unforgiving Atlantic Waters In Season 4
The stakes remain high off the coast of Newfoundland as the captains and crews of Cold Water Cowboys return for their most challenging and dangerous season yet.
Baiting new fisheries and battling against all odds to land some of the biggest and most lucrative catches in series history, that’s what’s in store for the fourth season of Discovery’s original Canadian series.
From Paperny Entertainment, the authentic, eight-part 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. It’s a tough job – tough on boats, tough on gear, and tough on the human body – but these bred-in-the-bone fishermen wouldn’t have it any other way.
Throughout this new season, the fishermen face big challenges and risks, putting it all on the line for passion and pay days. Skipper Paul Tiller and the Atlantic Bandit are back as Tiller pushes his crew farther offshore than they’ve ever been. After 25 years of strict regulations, cod is making a comeback, and Tiller and his crew are attempting to see if they have what it takes to reel in this legacy catch. Captain Morris Anstey and the Sebastian Sails are also back, venturing into Iceberg Alley earlier than usual, where large sheets of ice threaten Anstey’s boat and the safety of his crew. Rick Crane and the boys of the Crane’s Legacy return to the water, but things are far from easy – still reeling from his father’s death, Crane doubts he can return to fishing.
And joining the cowboys this season are lifelong fisherman Calvin Kerrivan and his son, Kurtis. Based in Placentia, N.L., this father and son team head offshore to the far reaches of the continental shelf for an unusual set of fisheries. Closer to shore, there is a new boat in town, the Jacob Louisa skippered by Lee Pond, a fourth-generation fisherman. Aggressive and passionate, Lee pushes his crew to exhaustion in order to land the most fish in the bay.
