PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A spinoff of the popular show "Deadliest Catch" is putting a spotlight on the Oregon coast.

The Discovery Channel show is called "Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove," and it focuses on crab fisherman.

Newport's Gary and Kenny Ripka are the father-son captains of two Dungeness crab fishing vessels, and they told FOX 12 the show will take viewers inside their dangerous industry.

“It's the most dangerous fishery in the world and it's a good chance for Oregonians and those on the west coast to see how it works,” Gary Ripka said. “They see crabs on the plate but now they can see how we catch it.”

"Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove" premieres Tuesday night on the Discovery Channel, and viewers can tune into More Good Day Oregon Wednesday morning to hear much more from the gutsy fisherman.
