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

A couple weeks ago she went lobstering Downeast on the Laura Lee 2 with a 23-year veteran, and a first-year sternman from Texas.

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."

First I'd help with bait.

Chelsey- "Oh gross."

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

Chelsey- "Is that enough in there? Little more. So when people tell you their job stinks you say?"

Monte- "Oh yeah!"

It was time for me to try and bring in the haul.
