Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 17 July 2017

Monday morning's market in Newlyn


Unusually, not a single beam trawler for Monday's market...


so today's fish are all top-drawer day or two day old fish from over the weekend...


from well known names as the handline boat, Butts...


and others who targeted bass over the weekend...


there are signs of some early squid on the ground with Brackan's Spirited Lady...


and other superb specimens like this stunning red bream...


day trawlers are always good for a wide selection of quality fish, though they are no always lucky enough to pull up a turbot this big - a fish that, on its own, will make around £150 on an average market...


delightful Dovers...


dinner -plate sized turbot...


and it looks like Tom on the Harvest Reaper snuck in a solid landing of John Dory from under young Mr Nowell's nose on the Imogen III...


the inshore boats enjoy good flat fishing at the moment...


though when it comes to fish like hake,they barely get a look in as they inhabit much deeper water and are far too smart to be caught by relatively small trawl fished by inshore trawlers...


there's enough to keep the merchants busy from 6am...


on a Monday morning in Newlyn...


just one of the big hake landed from the Ajax...


young Janner obviously fancies his chances pole and line fishing for bass today as he heads for the gaps... 


plenty of yachts in over the weekend...


close-up of the port side dredge gear worked by one of the biggest scallopers in the UK, the Albion skippered by none other than Will Gillespie, ex-Newlyn beam trawler skipper...


the latest members of the Newlyn fleet take to the harbour waters for the first time, cygnets 1, 2, 3 and 4...


morning sun on the Albion...


there are blue and white horses in the Bay and along the prom this year...


great WH Lane fine art auction later this month on the 20th of July in Penzance...


just one of the superb maritime landscapes up for auction.
