I’d like to ask if could people not simply copy and paste this entire post onto message boards and instead copy the url of this blog post to share. Lots of work goes into blogging and at the very least good form is to post a sentence with a link back to a newspaper or blog post saying for the rest of the story go here- http://www dot xyz story dot com
Now for the good stuff, some more insider dish on the process of how they get the contestants to the start of the race!
From what was overheard the contestants are flown in on private chartered jet with the windows blacked out so they have no idea where they are landing. They are then ushered directly into a bus which has completely blacked out windows and they are not supposed to talk to each other at all. They got off the bus at The State Fish Pier In Gloucester which is where I started taking video and where they boarded the fishing boats. With the weather being unseasonably warm they could have easily mistaken Gloucester for a warmer climate port. You can click on this link to see all the pictures of what takes place at The State Fish Pier in Gloucester
More to come later……
I included the full sized pic when you click through on the first picture so you can see the faces.

It’s frickin cold out this morning. It can be deceiving because it is sunny but believe me when Dave Jewell and all the rest of my fishermen are bundled up like this, you should be too.
CJ Morgante, Major League Soccer Referee Talks Lobstering
Here’s CJ, once again hopping right in to offload the crates of lobsters.
He hasn’t once been afraid to get his hands dirty or dive right into something. As a matter of fact he was so gung ho the first day he showed up he was helping to grade lobsters and after about an hour I saw his hands were all cut up. I got him a pair of gloves immediately but I have a hunch he wouldn’t have said a word about it and just toughed it out.
Here’s CJ heading back to the dock after his second day lobstering.
If you’ve been following along you know that CJ Morgante, Major League Soccer Referee asked for the real Lobsterman experience. Frank set him up on three different boats to go lobstering in three days. That’s pretty cool if you ask me for a boy from Pennsylvania with no ties to Gloucester to just roll up here and hop aboard the boats and get to it.
Day Two- Aboard The Lady J with Captain Dave Jewell and mate Goulart.
Dave stopped by the dock to pick up his check on his way back from a charter with some bluefish he had caught in his lobster tank.
Hope we don’t lose Dave to the movie industry.
Looking like there is finally some interest in lobstering again. Thank Christ, it’s been a long winter.
