A Race Against Time
Big Dog’s owner, independent oilman Autry Stevens, is racing to save 4 expiring leases that will be worth half a billion dollars in oil production “lose the leases lose the company.” On the rig, the pressure of 4 holes in 50 days has the roughnecks at each other’s throats. To make matters worse the day crew finds is forced to train a worm. Cheston has never set foot on an oil rig, and he soon finds out that working on a drill site is somewhere between joining a fraternity or a prison gang. You have to earn respect or get run off… or worse. Cheston’s main tormentor is the driller, Pee Wee. At 5’7” this Napoleonic powder keg rules with intense energy and a clenched fist. Within minutes, he’s ready to send Cheston scurrying down the road with his tail between his legs. But soon Pee Wee has another roughneck to worry about… oilfield veteran Gerald Williams in joining Big Dog 28… when he finally passes his drug test. Gerald and Cheston are friends and Gerald’s supposed to be the worm’s mentor on the rig…if he can get there. Even though shifts change, the rig never stops and neither does the drama. Ron is the driller on the night crew and his main job is wrangling roughnecks, Josh, Travis, and Brandon. But when Travis is late hot head Brandon wants to fight him on the rig. Tensions ratchet even higher when the rig finally finishes its first well and has to move the massive rig 1 mile to the next drill site.

What Happened on the Back Deck?
Across the fleet supplies are running low, fish are migrating away from the coastal waters, and the season’s most violent storm is on the horizon. But with only a few days left in the season, captains across the fleet are doing whatever it takes to find the fish. On the Big Eye, Captain Chomps is low on bait and food, and without enough fish on board to make a paycheck, he’s headed for another broker trip. With only enough bait for one more set, he has no choice but to try to get the smallest boat in the fleet through the storm. Desperate to land a huge trip, Frances Anne owner Rick Mears pushed former captain Slick aside and took command of the boat. But they still haven’t broken even, and they’re also running low on bait and supplies. Rick has just enough bait for two more sets – his last chance to prove he still has what it takes to bring in the fish. On the Bjorn II, Captain Greenlaw’s also fishing through the storm trying to break even. But she’s forced off deck when her finger is crushed by the hauling block. As her battered crew tries desperately to bring in the gear, the brutal conditions send a deckhand overboard. Captain Scotty on the Eagle Eye II fears the storm will scatter the fish and put him back at square one. But the experienced captain gambles and sets his gear, hoping the fish are still around. But the storm makes setting twice as tough, and twice as dangerous. With each roll of the boat, the line stretches to its breaking point, ready to snap at any moment and lash back at the crew like a bullwhip loaded with razor sharp hooks.
