  • How the boats set off there gear.

    5.0
    I am a fisherman from east Port l'Hebert NS, when i watch the show i noticed you set gear dangerously.We just throw the highflyer and possibly the first trap and every1 stands out of the way and they slip off one by one, instead of throwing every trap. Stack them 3 high and when the first trap goes and the line comes tight the force of the rope hauls the next trap off etc. Its much safer than how you guys set gear on the show. WE also fish traps, we call them superdogs 18 meshes by 21 meshes, they are tireing to handle.moreless

    A look into the lives of the New England Lobstermen in the same fashion that made "Deadliest Catch" such a huge hit for Discovery, despite the its recent criticizes. So it would be no surprise that Discovery would look for another fishery to document.



    Whenever a TV series become a successfully hit for the a network that air it and is completely different from any thing else that is on TV at the time of its airing, it will no doubt spawn spin-offs that are both different, but the similar, it one of the oldest tricks in the book. It has been done numerous of times and there are a ton of examples of it. Sometimes it will produced a hit or it will become a miss, only time will tell if Lobster Wars will be hit or a miss.



    While Lobster Wars doesn't have the epic nature of Deadliest Catch, and the producers tried that in the two-part mini-series "Lobstermen: Jeopardy at Sea" and it felt like a cheap rip off, but while the boats in Lobster Wars are smaller than the ones in Deadliest Catch, it doesn't lessen the dangers that these people face down while they trying to do their job. I do suggest that you should at least give it a shot and leave all of the pre-thoughts notions that Deadliest Catch taught you and view it with an open mine, like you did when you first saw Deadliest Catch, you might be surprised that you might like it.moreless
  • Rip Off of DEADLIEST CATCH.

    5.6
    Once a series becomes successful it spawn numerous immitations. This one is about Lobster fisherman, Deadliest Catch is about Crab fisherman. Lobster Wars is Deadliest Catch Lite.



    With Deadliest Catch everything is bigger, the pots (traps that catch crabs/lobsters) are huge on DC, relatively tiny on Crab Wars. I only saw bits and pieces of the pilot episode as it quickly became boring after the first 15 minutes. They would pull up a pot with 1 or 2 lobsters in it. Thats it. On DC they pull up huge hauls where hundreds of King Crab come spilling out. DC has a much more imminent sense of danger - sometimes during filming ships sink and people actually die. On CW the sense of danger isnt there; though its still dangerous work. The Bering Sea is much more intense, with ships caked with ice and brutal seas. Fishing off coastal New England is nowhere near as bad - in fact it was really nice weather.



    I dont plan on watching any more of this one. Whats next? Scallop fishing? Squid? Shrimp? Clams? Whaling?moreless
