Lobstermen: Jeopardy at Sea is a multi-part documentary/reality show on the Discovery Channel chronicling the fall 2005 North Atlantic lobster fishing season aboard several fishing boats. Created and narrated by Thom Beers, it is heavily patterned after and can be considered a spin-off of fellow Discovery Channel program Deadliest Catch, which deals with Alaskan crab fishing. Lobstermen debuted on June 20, 2006, one week after the finale of season two of Deadliest Catch in its former time slot.
The central story of the show is the struggle of first-year captain Scott Christopher and his boat, Dragon Lady, in their attempt to gain a foothold on the hotly contested fishing grounds of the Georges Bank. In 2007, Lobster Wars debuted, following not only Dragon Lady, but also four other lobster boats.
The show was filmed aboard five fishing vessels.
