Monday, 4 April 2016

Hazards of fishing - Big Don suffered from the bends.




More evidence the Mission building will be up and running in its new guise as essential services get plumbed in...


three huge monk tails kick off this morning's market watch...


along with a dollop of Dovers...


and haddock for the inshore trawler Elisabeth Veronique...


name the three kinds of ray...


and a box of beauties...


rare large mackerel...


more signs of Spring as a few spiders put in an appearance...


at the sign of the cross...


quality MSC Certified Cornish hake on the market this morning...


from the good ship Britannia V...



and a handful of bass from the AA...


 and a selection of tails...


about to put out more post, the Sovereign about to take on bait...


busy this morning as the  Shiralee has to queue for ice...


not so smooth on the way out this morning for the punt, Evening Star...


followed by the Elisabeth Veronique...


 bound away again...


always happy to be at sea, septuagenarian Dennis Pascoe geads out through the gaps...


followed by young Mr Morley...


looking back at an almost empty harbour...


across the bow of the sailing ship Bessie Ellen...


no doubt the forensic squad will be called in to take away paint samples from whomever gave the end of the quay a ding over the weekend...


the Scillies marine medical link for the Doctor and midwife of the Islands...


looking glum and describing the water as 'soup' - meaning the fish cannot see the lures the handliners work with - not a good start to the week for the punt men!...


after taking ice the Shiralee is bound away for the day...


now we know why the Filadelifa was forced to return after just one haul!, bad luck Don.
