#FishyFriday in Newlyn


#FishyFriday finds Newlyn full of fish again...


with a great shot of flats like these brill...


and other flats from the inshore trawler Elisabeth Veronique...


while the new kid on the block, Ocean Harvest pulled out a solid trip with good fishing on ray...


while the handline boys like Cap'n Cod on the Butts...


pulled up good hauls of pollack...


and bass for their day's work...


which kept the buyers busy...


the Karen of Ladram was one of three netters to land early trips for this neap tide...


and the quality of the fish only a couple of days old was enough to make even the most hardened buyers happy...


with well over 400 boxes of the best MSC Certified Cornish hake to choose from...


boats like the Amanda of Ladram...


one of only a handful of boats licensed to land spurdog...


there were also a few carp-like red mullet from up the coast...


and a solid trip quality flats...


and monk tails...



from Nathan Marshall, skipper of the Billy Rowney...


no prizes for guessing what these boxes are full of...


bass are always something of a bonus for an inshore trawler...


like this trip from Tom on the Harvest Reaper...


at first light the moon hangs almost due south of the harbour...


and judging by the look of...


the sky it's going to be another


gorgeous day in Cornwall...


as the light begins to fill the harbour...


work on the aluminium shelterdeck...


of the Galilee is well underway...


both these boats are at the ready to sail at a moment's notice...


an early morning delivery of fuel oil arrives down the quay...


a sure sign of the autumn in Keel Alley...


work nears completion on the other new crabber in the port on the slip...


as does work on the beam trawler, Resurgam nearing the end of her massive overhaul...


back on the Billy Rowney Dan plans a night ashore...


as skipper Steve discusses the poor forecast and the bumpy ride off they will have when sailing tomorrow given the poor forecast for the weekend...


which should give cameraman Luke something to think about planning those poor weather shots as he heads back to pick up more film gear for the trip.
