Wednesday's fishy action




Shining John Dory always look so good...


and this time of year is megrim time...


these little red gurnard will keep a few crab pots baited...


just a reminder that this shark needs to stay whole for a while yet...


Twilight time on the slip...


another foreigner, this time from Poole...


same kind of boat, same kind of fishing - just 20 years in boat design have changed with the introduction of transom (square) sterns found on most fishing boats today...


the Alphaver is still in port today awaiting a decision over her trawl mesh...


along the green Cormac have kindly created a chart to show the public just how much concrete is being used to create the new sea defenses on Newlyn Green - a total of 2000m² is needed and at 6m² a orry load that's a whole lot of lorries!...



easy to see why when the size of the footings is seen, the bottom of the pit must be twenty feet below high water...


the concrete is pumped in like icing a giant cake.
