Mid-week market mostly inshore fish


Looks like a fine Cornish day in the offing...



are lost gill nets in the South West responsible for ghost fishing? - it takes very little time before any gill nets that are lost on the sea bed become a tangled mess - the action of the tide and weather see to it that theses nets do not fish for more than a few days after being lost...



its pollack season for the Sea Spray...



and for the first time in ages the inshore hand liners get to put good shots of mackerel ashore...



along with these colourful plaice...



several varieties of ray...



even more mackerel...


top mackerel hand line fishing from the punt Pendower...



waiting to set sail again for the pollack grounds...

 


Lords of the Ring net...

 


let's hope keep her in berth for a while yet...

 


as the number of yellow-wellies increases daily...

 



no more balancing on rickety steps to service the hull of boats on the slip #H&S
