A day in the life of inshore fishing and lobster potter girl Pamela


The Girl Pamela is one of Newlyn's inshore fleet of boats that works a range of fishing gear over the course of a year. This ranges from pots to fish for brown crab and lobster to gill nets to fish wrecks for fish like pollack and ling to tangle nets for monk and spider crab. The boat may also use handlines with feathers for mackerel or pollack boards to fish big white fish over wrecks or rough ground.
