Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 7 June 2019

Thursday to FishyFriday - what a difference a day makes!



A brace of Rowse crabbers between trips...


#FishyFriday night is music night at the Swordfish...


local scrounger...


Admiral Grenville up on the slip...


for a bottom paint and new anodes...


the new Penlee Lifeboat house is nearing completion...



flat calm balmy summer's evening...



to a damp, overcast miserable morning...


luckily in side the market it's all go with net fish from the Britannia V...


local grey mullet...


some cracking big brill from the beam trawler Twilight III...


a pair of ray wings with the body frame cut out - which goes for crab bait...


SAGB guru Mike Warner recording some of Newlyn's top quality dayboat fish...


big blondes...


two gorgeous examples of bream, but which kind?..


the only mackerel on the market - must have made a fortune!..


Still Waters managed to nobble a few young Roger Nowell's Dorys!..


even bigger blondes...


staple diet of the beam trawl fleet, Dover Sole...


staple diet of the handline fleet at the moment, pollack...


these little fellas are being seen in ever increasing numbers and ever-increasing size all round the coast of Cornwall...


beam trawl reds...


best line caught bass from Mark Clancy...


a trio of specimen lemon soles from Dr Dory...


beam trawlers, no matter where they fish seem to always pick up a handful of big cod...


amazing just how selective beam trawl gear has become...


don't forget, if you've never tried a big tub gurnard give one a go - ask your local fishmonger - if you are lucky enough to have one...


glistening John Dory in perfect summer condition...
  

heavy fish-transport flank the crabber, Harriet Eve (thank you Ed)...


Devon Nicola of Ladram back in Newlyn...


under wraps, work continues to give Newlyn back one of its historic pubs after it was gutted by fire.
