Gouldsboro Bay - In this "Take This Job & Love It" Chelsey Anderson found out if she would sink or swim.

Marcus Jones, Captain, Laura Lee 2- "We're going to haul in West Bay today. All my traps I have marked on my plotter. 610 are in the water."

Chelsey- "Oh gross."

Monte Regal, Sternman, Laura Lee 2- "Snapper head in each bag and then topped with herring."
