Forgot it's #FishyFriday?


Two boats and over two hundred boxes make up this week's #Fishyfriday offering...


these lemons making good money on a relatively quiet market thanks to the huge tides this week...


squid in excellent condition like these with their thin brown film still in place always make good money... 


while these lean, long ling make excellent fish cakes or fish pie big flaky flesh ideal for a fish stew or soup too...


top table fish of the day...


 have to be these big bass from Capn' Cod...


though John Dory are a great but very different eat - sweet delicate flesh...


all hail the hake as Phil would say. though these fish are ones for the history books, the first to be landed by relief skipper Edwards taking the Karen for a spin...


mackerel are still keeping the small punts in the money...


on quiet calm morning...


though looking at the deck of the Admiral Benbow...


there's more than a day's work to get her fishing gear assembled... 


as the punts head for the gaps in the morning gloom...


Tome= keeps an eye on the fleet...


as the sun makes a break from behind the Mount...


the big moon...


is still hanging in the sky.
