#FishyFriday finds most of the fleet in port.


#FishyFriday fish in short supply at the end of a busy week that saw a gale blow its way through the south west...


not bad enough to drive all the boats in but certainly bad enough to give those that were at sea hard time as this shot from the office window shows of the netter, Ajax dodging some 110 miles west of Newlyn...
plenty of buyers and not so much fish with just the big beam trawler, Billy Rowney and the netter Govenek of Ladram landing... 
 so it is a big fish kind of auction, huge moink tails..
huge haddock... 
 huge pollack..
 huge coley... 
 huge roes...
 number 1 fish...
  a familiar pose...
 everything goers down in the book... 
 these ray fill the box...
 hugest Dover sole on the market this week...
 handsome Cornish MSC Certified hake...
 get loaded onto the waiting transport...
 while most of the fleet are back in port...
 waiting for a glimpse of sunshine today.
