Richard Gillett from "Cold Water Captains" stars in The Weather Channel reality docu-series.

Richard Gillett is a giant of a man with the personality to match. He is a fifth generation fisherman of Twillingate, Newfoundland, Canada. and there's nowhere else on earth he could exist — he is rooted to the place.

Richard has worked every fishing season since the age of 13. His hands are scarred and his fingers can barely straighten from all the hauling they've done. At 20, he went out on his own, and by 25, he'd lost his first boat to a chunk of ice the size of a house. He still remembers the cracking and popping; he and the crew were lucky to escape with their lives.

Richard is always itching to get on the water after a long winter. For him, the best day of the year, no matter what the weather, is the first fishing day in April, and the "saddest and most terrible" is that day in December when they have to hang up the gear for another winter.

Led by the inimitable first mate Juice Can, Richard's crew is up for hard work, adventure and plenty of laughs.
