Ping Pong and NatGeo Wild embedded crews on Alaskan fishing vessels for a look inside the high stakes world of salmon fishing. During the Alaskan summer, 400 vessels with unrelenting captains race out into 40,000 square mile Cook Inlet to fish for wild Alaskan salmon. They only have a few short weeks to make their entire yearly wage, all while facing 20 foot tides, around the clock work days, mechanical breakdowns, strict regulations and unpredictable weather. Captains and crews strategize, often working in teams to locate the elusive schools of salmon and move in quickly to secure a bigger share of a 98 million dollar payday.
