Enterprising day.

The port's biggest boat, Enterprise landed a trip this morning which included a stack or six of scallops...


and pouts...


inshore boats braved an uncomfortable day in the Bay to land a few bass...


but all of the inshore trawlers made the best of the weather to land their first trips of the new year...


with a good mix of inshore fish...


big plaice are few and far between at this time of year...


bream team, Couch's, gilt-head and black...


Dover sole are the nosiest of fish...


signs that the cuttlefishery is not as it was at a little over a tub a day...


bass never fail to excite the buyers...


and these boats are no strangers to landing them...


some fish are graded according to species and size...


all set to land at high water, the beam trawler Admiral Gordon...


under a very moody morning sky...


which spread some serious shades of magenta across the bay and beyond.
