Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 18 May 2015

Tiz a miserable mizzly Monday morning


Sunday afternoon's nigh on perfect Mare's Tail cloud...


contrasted with Monday morning's heaviness in the Bay, a mizzle barely leaves the Trinity House bota Galatea and the Scottish prawn trawler Maracestina visible...


a full market means there's a big sample of fish need going through fpr Cefas...


with most of the boat's fish stacked two high...


the Sapphire III and the Filadelfia both had big shots of monk...


and a few boxes of cod to keep local fish merchants like Rob Wing smiling...


the western end of the market was full of net fish...


with big trips of hake and turbot...


and something that will put a smile on a few faces - Cap'n Cod had a solid weekend's fishing on the bass it seems...


high water and most of the fleet are in port...


these days supplying the crab fleet with enough bait to keep them at sea is something of a logistical challenge...


all hands will be looking for the weather to give local artists a chance to capture more scenes like this coming up for auction at WH Lanes...


if not, there's an excellent course running at Penlee Park over the next few months.
