Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 18 November 2013

The bass boys bag big bass and bring them back for this mornings Monday market!




Monday's market was busy enough...


with a solitary reg gurnard keeping an eye on things...


with some taking it all in their stride it seems...


top quality fish like these huge, 'handbag' John Dory...


and a big consignment of bass fro the hook and line boats working off the hard ground...


with a handful of grey mullet landed...


just the one landing of hake from the netter, Ajax....


while down the quay the Crystal Sea is landing waste from her trip...


a steel Breton stern trawler lays inside the Elisabeth Veronique yet another new boat for the port as Newlyn goes through its biggest surge in big boat acquisition in modern times which given the current uncertainty in the world at large is testimony to the grit and determination of all those skippers and owners prepared to buck the trend, bite the bullet and make the most of the abundant fishing grounds now found in the Western Approaches...


everyone, including Tom is being treated to a succession of soaring sunrises at the moment.
