Not quite Sillitoe, Sunday night Monday morning





Visiting Plymouth registered ring netter, Rebecca Anne PH770 


one of the few fora'rd wheelhouse boats...


built especially for the fishery...


after a lengthy wai,t the timber baulks have arrived to complete the replacement of worm-eaten fenders in the harbour...


Monday morning's makret was a mix of beam trawl fish...


like these big plaice...


cuttles...


which leave there mark on  the delicate skins of red mullet...



as opposed to these pristine line caught examples...


big brill...


while the gandliners made the most of a quieter spell in the weather to pick away a few mackerel...


line caught bass from our resident bass-meister...


and a handful of pollack...


while the netter Britannia V landed a good shot of hake...


feellow netter Stelissa landed the ever-present cod...


a few tub gurnards...


the also omni-present haddock...


which attracted the attention of a certain young George Cleave...



Port Isaac based fisherman and fishmonger 
who put in a brief appearance on Saturday Kitchen at the weekend along with the world's only 2-Star Michelin fish restaurant chef, Nathan Outlaw...



just in and ready to land...


 the beam trawler Sapphire II...


a small fleet of forklifts make light work of shifting fish...


as the sun breaks through the cloud...


ex-landing craft, Seven Sins.
