Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 11 July 2018

Mid-week market in Newlyn


The Ajax might have spent the first few days of this trip vainly searching for fish - but things turned out differently come the end of the trip it seems with 400+ boxes on the market this morning skipper Alan's instincts paid off big time...



as the hake which made up well over 300 boxes of the trip...


included a good run size-wise...


right up to 5-6 kilo fish and bigger topping off the trip...


more than enough to raise a cheery smile and wave from some of the buyers...


Sid on the Karen of Ladram opted to work trammel nets...


 for turbot...


and monk...



which provided half a box of much sought after monk cheeks  - which you can sample at Nathan Outlaw's Port Isaac restaurant...


of course, with every trammel net turbot trip comes a box or two of crab paws - dependant on how many the crew take home of course!..


and the odd blue shark...


nice line in chic market-approved footwear this morning...


can't see Cefas Gary in them though...


quality JDs form the inshore boats...


along with a few red mullet...


and cracking tub gurnard...


after assisting with the stranded French yacht the previous evening the Ali Cat popped a few kilos of bass ashore...


and a handful of mackerel...


while the Harvest Reaper managed nearly a box of sand soles...


smart fishing from this handliner...


our main bass man, Cap'n Cod was on a roll with a string of top quality line caught pollack...


and some big bass again...


with fish flying fast out of the door...


Lionel was able to hose down the grading machine area...


early morning flight...


looks like the St Georges is back again...


bound away...


and living the dream...


half the house is missing - major refurb on the Resurgam...


looking for breakfast...


she's being named and numbered this week...


and her pots are nearly ready to go aboard...


stern on, two classic hulls, one built for speed...


beam-on, two more classic hulls, one built for speed...


not a breath this morning...


latest addition to the inshore fleet...


it's only a matter of days before the Cornish sardine season gets underway and the Vesta  gets a chance to dip her net for the first time...


Breton yacht, La Galliarde...


everything shipshape and in its place...


as expected on a boat of such pedigree...



which has just taken part in the Plymouth Port Louis La Rochelle...


the team at Hope Ships are always on the lookout for help and support in any way so that they can restore the old local fishing boat, Ros Na Rioch...


yacht Aquila...


a seriously sleek catamaran in Newlyn this morning...


complete with the plushest fenders ever seen in the harbour...


maybe Three Lions will replace the English rose on some name boards in the future if things go well tonight and at the weekend?!



good to see the Ivan Ellen back in port ready to relieve the relief boat...


work has just started on the construction of the new RNLI building...


Newlyn is just one big building site at the moment as ProjectLink begin to see the end of Phase II of the market refit coming to an end.
