Enter the Don




Just about the break of day...


as the beam trawler Lisa Jacqueline heads in #ThroughTheGaps


under the command of skipper Don...


Phil and son Scott...


with Don answering a few questions from a visitor in the food trade...


then it is time to 'do the gear'...


with Scott keeping an eye on proceedings...


all looking calm enough today...


with signs of haddock in the inshore landings...


one grandaddy ling - a 'git louster' as Robin Harvey used to call them...


the gleaming grey skin...


and glint in the eye of a big hake...


still good runs of mackerel to be had...


and lemons too...


along with heavy monk fishing for the beamers...



a little later and a change in the sky, maybe it will rain today.
