In like a lamb, out like a lion - First #FishyFriday in March


March 1st sees the final week's landings of



hake from the big netters...



like the Charisma...



Britannia V...



Joy of Ladram...




and Amanda of Ladram



while there were a few tubs of beam trawled cuttles... 



the Elisabeth Veronique pulled off another nice shot of Dovers...



the Algrie popped in with a few big plaice...



which no doubt caught the attention of Fish for Thought's main man Paul and film crew...



 name the fish...



it's that time of year again for fish roe...



just a few boxes of St Ives mackerel from Gary on the Bethshan this morning...



specimen ray...



fresh as they come, just what to look for in the freshest of fish, pollack with bright eyes and blood-red gills



big black bream...



delicious John Dory - many would say they are at their eating best this time of year...



busy end of the market...



two boxes of Dover soles landed by a gill netter working 120mm mesh - that says something for the size and amount of Dover soles swimming in Area VII!



along with a good few boxes of big tun gurnards...



ling make great fish cakes and fish pie...



name the fish to which this tail helps push along...



the cook's challenge, how to get tender octopus out of the pan?..



seems tat sharks like shellfish for supper...



plenty of big whiting with the netters this week...



the best marked of the ray family, but what is its name?..



the netter even had a few brill...



name this flatfish...



was into the pollack again...



the bulk of beam trawl trips are made up of...



monk tails...



and megrims...



cuttles leave their mark...



as does oil but the harbour is prepared...



a quiet morning...



and ideal lighting conditions for shooting your promo video...



work has begun on returning the Fishermen's Arms to its former glory - lets hope they saved all the amazing artefacts that were suspended from the ceiling in the bar - including the lump of molten pennies retrieved from a  red London phone box after an air raid in the Blitz...



well fitted out live-aboard yacht...



in the morning...



and time for a selfie down the quay...








five bladed prop...



heavy metal...



about to be turned into a beam trawl...



Brackan was unlucky enough to trawl up this huge 18th century ships anchor...



fish lorry all set to go.
