Wednesday's fishing news from Newlyn.


A bonnie morning aboard the Bonnie Grace...







Newlyn fish market might not have grid girls but it does have blondes by the boxload on the market most mornings...


and a few reds...





while the beam trawler, St Georges popped a few haddock...


and gurnards ashore...


the handliners were busy on the mackerel yesterday...


the big hake were landed by the netter, Ajax...



along with a few pollack...


while the St Georges added to the year's cuttlefish tally...




young Mr Cripps removed the last of the boxes ready to be loaded into the back of the transport...



while Edwin picked up the last of the Falfish insulated tubs for cleaning back at base - with the oil content now well below ideal, Falfish have suspended taking any more sardines at this late stage in the season...





a few of the boats in between trips caught in the morning light...


along with some of the ports regular gull population...



including this unusual winter visitor much loved by twitchers far and wide...



the old Ttegen Mor is looking good...




as is some of the harbours luxurious growth...


found in the oddest of places...




one of the port's regular tug visitors now they are based in Newlyn...
